Let's describe Neil Burger's latest as director "Abraham Polonsky's 'The Matrix.'" It's a hyper-local amped-up Manhattan melodrama that pulses through one man's mind, one user's bloodstream.

Paradoxically absorbing, yet cliched and empty, this power-based New York story is a bit of an entertaining thrill ride, probably far more popcorn-engrossing than it deserves to be...

Limitless brings the seduction of self-enhancement to your local cineplex in a witty package that's pretty enough to keep you intrigued

Relationships are shortchanged and this brisk, fantastical tale fails to find any emotional traction.

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

not just a cool film to watch, but a cool film to see

To see the two leads face off verbally is a treat...

Burger plunges into the material at such a headlong pace and with sufficient adrenalized style as to propel this essentially trashy thriller and distract from the abundant loose ends. [Blu-ray]

While it's not that the film-makers do an amazingly stunning job with the idea, it's perhaps more that they don't fumble it at all.

It's not the science that's important, it's the momentum, the conceptual journey, the dynamism of the head games and chemically-enhanced battle of wits...

One complaint you cannot level at Limitless is that it is unoriginal or uncreative. In an upcoming summer of senseless sequels and repugnant remakes, Limitless-warts and all-is at least something we've never seen before.

Dubious values and undercooked philosophy aside, Limitless is an engaging and often good-humoured trip that moves at quite a lick and benefits from being directed with some flair.

A fun, stylistic flick that seems like something Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle would do if he wanted to make a D.A.R.E. commercial.

A fun romp in this cautionary tale that glides by relying heavily on star Bradley Cooper's charisma.

Moves so fast you don't have time to think

A bracing story that examines what intelligence will and will not buy and what is the effect that such a drug would have on society

...a fascinating thriller with fine pace that never lets up.

I think they're trying to trade on Cooper's handsome mug when what they should be emphasizing is the tight, weird, unpredictable evil-cat-and-equally-evil-mouse angle. But no matter why you go see it, you won't have a bad time.
