One question that I had going into this movie as not 1. Will this be a good movie. 2. What will be the twist in this movie but the question was this: Will Bradley Cooper be able to hold is own as the star of movie?
|so this one little pill will make me a handsome leading man?|
Up until then Cooper has been regulated to supporting roles. You know the best friend, or like in A Team part of a big cast. But in Limitless he finally gets the chance to shine and you know what he does just fine. And Limitless as a movie? Really good. The movie is about writer/slacker (Cooper) who is going no where in life. In fact the day we meet him he gets dumped. Oh and he had been trying to write the same book for like 4 years. SO he runs into his ex-brother-in-law and he gives in to trying this new pill. This pill can open up your entire brain. So he is the perfect version of himself.
What follows is kind of generic grant you. Moral dilemmas, excess of riches, women, wine and song. But it keeps your attention and Cooper shows some real depth here in his struggle to find himself while in the midst of striving to survive.
Final Verdict: Maybe not own but I will watch again.
