Movie Review of Limitless
There are some movies which have a premise making them absolutely fabulous. This one made this cut. It was not all about love or violence or revenge. In fact, the theme was something unique and innovative. Most people who see it and like it, love it.
I absolutely loved the characters developed for the film as well as the director’s pick of the actors playing the individual characters. The director shot this film in a way that was genius for the story line. He allowed a person to experience from the inside of the main character enough to keep a viewer interested and an eye on the subversion as well as the intrigue that followed throughout the film.
Something new and innovative
The beginning as the end was not a new twist for a film. Where the director twisted you was to discover that the beginning wasn’t the end. The movie didn’t make drugs an appalling or horrific concept, and then he did. However, he made every scene watched something to think about when it comes to the drug.
The hints moved a viewer in favor of it and then against it.This was ingenious. Making the audience change their convictions within a matter of minutes on a moral question like this was definitely something new. You get car chases, villains, drama, suspense, romance and even a small pull at the heartstrings.
You considered the drug as a good thing and then a bad thing and then a good thing again. He allowed a glimpse into the world of” what if” thousands of times with almost every other scene. He made you ask if this was such a bad thing after showing you how bad drugs and people that do them they are and then showing all of the great things that they are able to do. If he would have tried this concept with an illegal drug it would never have worked.
Viewers questioned everything
Displaying how upside down and inside out a drug makes life and the pursuit and desperation of the drug that creates a life a living hell. Under all of that the director shows a real person and the trials of their life. He displayed that the drug made that life so much better than you could ever dream. However, the real vision is the actress telling the star of the movie and the beneficiary of this wonderful “gift” how bad it was and what he was on this wonder drug-nothing. Worse than nothing.
The movie is genius. A lot of cinema fans won’t appreciate this one because of the fast moving photography and the plots within plots and the twist that you need to follow. Following the twists is what makes this movie so extraordinary and separates it from a boring, same game-different name movie.
The title fits the story. Limitless is all that is proclaims to deliver and more. There are not a lot of big name movie stars, but there are certainly stars with this particular acting group.
One of the very important aspects of this meticulously written and scripted film is the question that it’s just near enough to real life to make any viewer ask….if this could really happen?
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, Anna Friel, Robert De Niro
