'Limitless' was a film that literally had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Cooper was magnificent in the ever evolving character of Eddie. He carried the entire film, effortlessly. I enjoyed the film, but for some reason I feel as though something was missing. It didn't exactly leave me wanting more but it made me feel as though it lacked heart. I didn't care that much for Eddie. I rooted for his character at times, but part of me didn't really care in the end.
The acting was great, two time Academy Award winner Robert DeNiro had a small yet powerful role as Carl Van Loom, head of a major company that wants Eddie to work for him. Abbie Cornish delivered a fine performance as well as Eddie's on-again off-again girlfriend.
The story line was awesome, it was unique and original and I enjoyed the thought that a teeny tiny pill can alter so much. Watching Eddie ride on this ZNT rollercoaster was fascinating and thrilling. But it could only go so far. I wanted to feel more about the character and craved to care about what would happen to him, but I didn't. This left me feeling very unsure about this film. I enjoyed everything except that aspect.
I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys Bradley Cooper, and a fun exhilarating film that makes you think the unthinkable. If you have seen this film please share your thoughts without giving anything away!!!
