    Limitless

    God what a stupid movie. Really cool concept but the direction is terrible. They treat everything as if it's already happened. Everything is so in-your-face and overextended to keep you interested, the whole film just tries too hard.

    The movie touches on some things that I think would provide some real entertainment, greed, addiction, betrayal, but focus too much on the main character and his physical wellbeing. Every time he's feeling good the colors look like blu ray and when he's sick everything looks like a World War 2 film.

    Between the silly plot and the tryhard suspense, the film just seems bad to me.
    But hell, if you saw it and enjoyed it please share your thoughts.

    I've seen it lately and I really enjoyed it actually, The idea is pretty brilliant.
    In all honestly I liked the color use, It gives a nice feeling to the events.

    The ending was good and well thought of too.

    Was very disappointed with this movie, very flawed on so many aspects, but really fucking cool on others. For me, waste of a great concept.

    Re: Limitless

    yeah, i saw this film like, 3 or 2 days ago, it's pretty awesome.
    but, i don't really get the end of it:/
    i mean, he says he got off the pills, then he said all of that stuff? and his eyes were still that light blue colour, and they always were after he took one of those pills, i got confused:/
    but it was a good storyline and everything, and i never spotted any flaws, although i didn't look out for any, i just sit back and enjoy films i watch, not sit there looking for flaws all day.

    also, i want one of those pills.

    @ Milkshake, He learned from what he did under influence of the pills. To make it clear, He got smarter because of the pills. and even though he stopped he still had that knowledge.

    It's probably symbolic.

    I applauded their use of lighting and video filters to indicate whether he was feeling the effects of NZT or lack thereof. It gives the viewer a feeling of lucidity when he's on the drug, and provides a depressing ambiance when he's off it.

    Overall, it was a neat concept, but it could've been delivered better.

    edit: "subtle" may not have been the appropriate word.

    Judging by his smile, speaking another language, his eyes, and the upbeat music I thought it was pretty obvious that he was still taking the pill.

    Shut up Picto. You liked Push, your opinion is invalid.
