Based on the novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn the Sci-fi thriller Limitless has a very unique concept. Bradley Cooper plays a writer who takes an experimental drug that enables him to use the full potential of his brain enabling him to instantly recall anything he ever learned, speak several languages, is a master at karate, and a millionaire on Wall Street. Before long he is working for a rich business tycoon played by Robert De Niro, chased by Russian mobsters and when his pills begin to run out there are unexpected consequences. This film is full of action, thrills an mystery but it seems to be missing something. It was not bad but maybe it needed a little more editing, a sharper script or better directing. (Possibly the scriptwriter, editor or director wasn’t using 100 percent of their brain) Using my brain and without sight I would say it needed a little better supporting cast, tied up loose ends with the plot and elaborated on the pills and how they work and side effects. This film was fun and entertaining with an unpredictable storyline and I’m just disappointed that it didn’t reach its full potential. This film is a wild ride and I’m giving it a B- rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
