Limitless never utilizes all of its brain, but does providing for an interesting and enjoyable sci-fi thriller.
With Limitless, Neil Burger (The Illusionist) sets out to tell the tale of a man tempted by power. A tale which aims to explore the allure of money. The movie sets to question what we would give to obtain such limitless possibilities and if the sacrifice for such power and perfection is worth it. However, the movie fails to be as intelligent and insightful as it would like to be. In its faults, though, it never touches that line of being pretentious in its quest, and still provides for an enjoyable experience.
