This visually dazzling and briskly paced drama is a solid excursion with a strong lead performance from Bradley Cooper, but it never quite delivers on its potential after a first half that suggests bigger and better things.

Limitless emerges as a science fiction film about human intelligence that is not only intelligent but also utterly entertaining and blessed unpretentious.

With arresting premise, visual and action, it's more than a thrill in a pill.

Once that buzz starts to wear thin, things become exhausting.

Relationships are shortchanged and this brisk, fantastical tale fails to find any emotional traction.
September 21, 2012
While it does have some entertaining moments and other moments where possibilities rear their heads, it never quite lives up to the premise.

An enjoyable film that tries to move beyond the standard thriller.
