About the Movie

Science tells us that humans use only ten percent of their brain. When Eddie Mora stumbles upon a pill that gives him access to the full 100 percent, he thinks he's uncovered the key to living out his wildest dreams. But the dream quickly turns into a nightmare when he finds himself at the center of a conspiracy, hunted by shadowy forces with incredible power and an inexhaustible reach.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Limitless hits you like an adrenaline rush that will have you saying, "I'll have what he's having." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Mar 18, 2011

Fresh: Limitless may not be as brainy as it would like to think it is, but it's a relatively sharp and surprisingly playful head-trip, a satisfyingly novel twist on mindless entertainment. – Tom Charity,, Mar 18, 2011

Rotten: The filmmakers doesn't sweat the fact that Eddie is a chemically enhanced fraud. What scares them is any possibility of alienating the movie's target audience with a downer ending. – Mark Jenkins, NPR, Mar 18, 2011

Fresh: You could pick the script apart for impossibilities. But why bother? It's much more enjoyable to shut your brain off and have a good time. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Mar 24, 2011

Can't wait to see this again!

Walked away talking about this movie

I saw this movie in theaters and for awhile there, there was nothing worth noting that played, until i saw this movie, ya there are a few what ifs or "plot holes" but overall this movie is worth watching. It was fast paced, intelligent, and a new direction that few movies actually take. The cast was well picked, the movie well edited and had a very well thought out flow to it. Makes you walk away talking about this thing and everybody has to want NZT after they watch this movie. Go See it!
