Cast & Crew
You could pick the script apart for impossibilities. But why bother? It's much more enjoyable to shut your brain off and have a good time.
Add it all up, including the nifty twist at the end, and what we have here is a fun Hollywood flick with a good head on its shoulders.
Limitless is limited, but intriguing nonetheless.
Limitless may not be as brainy as it would like to think it is, but it's a relatively sharp and surprisingly playful head-trip, a satisfyingly novel twist on mindless entertainment.
If you want a movie with a sermon, well, look somewhere else. But if you want an adrenaline shot to the heart, look here.
Occasionally skirts greatness and is definitely worth your time. But it could have been much more.
Limitless hits you like an adrenaline rush that will have you saying, "I'll have what he's having."
