He finds it and his life change complete. A problem comes when the drug is used up. And Eddie just knows that someone has an eye on him, on his drugs especially.
I have two words to describe the opening of Limitless, awesome and dizzy. I almost gave up and gonna to shut my laptop but I was curious about the film. So I finished it. The story was good. But it does not when the main character jump down in Wall Street. I can not understand at all, although I used Indonesia subtitle while I was watching it. First I was happy that the story tells about a job and opportunity as a book writer, but when Eddie turns out into different job that produces more money in fast time, I feel disappointed.
Shia LaBeouf was originally plan play as Eddie but he got accident from Transformers 2 set, then Bradley Cooper had the character. It is the way better for me. LaBeouf seems like a teenager for me.
Then let talks about the ending. It is good but um . . watch it then you will understand. The ending makes me think that once you try drugs, you can not be as normal as you do before.Despite the drugs make you smarter, richer, and success, it is not the good way after all. Please do not try drugs even you are heart broken, frustration or have many problems. Sadly, in my personal opinion, Limitless turns the right message into bad massage :(
