This sort of stories are already done by many directors but the difference here is that Eddie Moral remains himself before and after, and all that changes is his ability to recall everything he ever saw or heard. “Limitless” assumes that would be a benefit and make him rich, but what if most of what he ever saw or heard about Wall Street was wrong. The movie sidesteps the problem that what we need is more intelligence and a better ability to reason, not a better memory. For memory, modern man has Google. There’s no need to stumble over such technicalities, however, given TTS premise “Limitless” is passably entertaining.

Bobbie Cornish plays Lindy, the successful young professional woman who dumps Eddie as a loser and falls for him all over again when he becomes a winner. This is not sneaky on her part. There is every reason to dump the original Eddie and many good ones to return. Eddie has to deal with three main problems. The first problem is that he is running out of pills so if he wants to survive in the position and tackle the people he needs that pill again and needs to find a relevant source to them. The second has to do with a mob loan shark who liked being smart and wants to get that way gain and want those pills from him.

The third involves another person named Carl Van Loon, played by Robert De Noir, as one of the richest men in America. He hires Eddie as an investment magician. Eddie loses his touch when he runs out of pills which he regains it somehow. De Noir is not well used in the role, because he plays Van Loon straight and in one dimension. Bradley Cooper fits well into the two versions of Eddie Amoral, and director Neil Burger does inventive visual effects in showing how time telescopes for Eddie and the answers to problems seem to materialize before his eyes.

A subplot about a murder, however, raises questions it doesn’t answer, and all the quasi-criminal stuff seems a little perfunctory. The movie is not terrifically good, but the premise is intriguing; it doesn’t really set out to explore what such a pill might really to do a person. “Limitless” only uses 15, maybe 20 percent of its brain. Still, that’s more than a lot of movies do. So I think it is another breath-taking holly wood film based on motivation, innovation and charisma. It’s all about discovering your own talent which is wit in yourself. All you need is to bring it out and be the best in yourself.
