Limitless Review

I really enjoyed this film,  I felt that it had the right amount of action and plot.  It explores the fact that humans only use 20% of their brain and the idea of taking a drug in order to reach the extra 80% of it.

The story starts with a guy that has just split with his girlfriend because he isn’t going any where and she’s had enough.  He then bumps into his ex brother in law and he offers him a drug that is suppose to be FDA approved.  The brother in law leaves him with one pill to try.  After taking it he manages to clean up his act and start writing a book that he hasn’t been able to start in years.

Realising the drug works he wants more and goes back to his brother in law to find things get a whole load more complicated.

The film for me was good and I have even seen it twice, the second time I realised that other then the obvious it just illistrated what comes with being good at something, how nothing is ever as good as it is seems, along with the fact that there is always a downside.  The pill aside with getting better at things the guy was going from living a difficult but simple life to making more and more enemies.  Overall I would give this film a 8/10.
