[An] ingenious, extremely violent thriller...

Good, if limited.

What's fresh about this concept is how it turns perfect intelligence into a superpower and tries to imagine its real-world applications. What's less fresh is the ensuing plot...

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.

It's more Jan de Bont than Christopher Nolan, but when the ride is this exhilarating, sometimes the destination just doesn't matter.

It's scatty and fast paced, and director Neil Burger employs some Gaspar Noé-style, bad-trip CG effects to heighten the mood.
March 21, 2011
Very limited, actually.

What would you do if you could take a pill and suddenly access 100 percent of your brain power? This is the premise behind Limitless, a sci-fi thriller that looks as if its makers utilized around 30 percent of theirs.

The filmmakers doesn't sweat the fact that Eddie is a chemically enhanced fraud. What scares them is any possibility of alienating the movie's target audience with a downer ending.

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.

Limitless is frustrating, in part, because it could have been much better.
March 18, 2011
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."
March 18, 2011
"Limitless" is a heck of a ride. On the way to its unpredictable (if less than wholly satisfying) conclusion, it is entertaining, a little silly and visually dazzling.
March 18, 2011
"Limitless" may please a few looking for a shallow fantasy thriller, but won't fire up the synapses of the intellectually demanding.

If you're willing to ignore the many leaps in logic, his fast-paced thriller goes down easy enough with a side of popcorn.

If there were a pill that made people smarter, I'd donate an extra supply to the creators of "Limitless."
