Trama del film:

An action-thriller about a writer who takes an experimental drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his mind. As one man evolves into the perfect version of himself, forces more corrupt than he can imagine mark him for assassination. Out-of-work writer Eddie Morra's (Cooper) rejection by girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) confirms his belief that he has zero future. That all vanishes the day an old friend introduces Eddie to NZT, a designer pharmaceutical that makes him laser focused and more confident than any man alive. Now on an NZT-fueled odyssey, everything Eddie's read, heard or seen is instantly organized and available to him. As the former nobody rises to the top of the financial world, he draws the attention of business mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who sees this enhanced version of Eddie as the tool to make billions. But brutal side effects jeopardize his meteoric ascent. With a dwindling stash and hit men who will eliminate him to get the NZT, Eddie must stay wired long enough to elude capture and fulfill his destiny. If he can't, he will become just another victim who thought he'd found invincibility in a bottle. Written by Relativity Media

    Someone asked me once what I thought ADD medication does. I thought
    about it for a second, and replied, “In the simplest terms, it changes
    your mind.” Sometimes, people’s minds need changing. More than just a
    push or a boost, sometimes people need help remembering things,
    learning new things, making connections between things they already
    know, motivating themselves to use that information, etc.

    In the movie “Limitless”, there’s a pill that does all of that; and
    much, much, much more.

    The tagline for this movie is “What if a pill could make you rich and
    powerful?” I prefer a line from the trailer: “How many of us ever know
    what it is to become the perfect version of ourselves?” Bradley Cooper
    plays Eddie Morra, a writer who can’t motivate himself to write his
    book even when he locks himself in a room with his laptop. He doesn’t
    do drugs (anymore), but anyone who looked at him would swear he was
    always strung out. He doesn’t have anything.

    One day, Vernon (played by Johnny Whitworth), his ex-brother-in-law who
    is also his ex-dealer, offers him some help: a clear, little round pill
    that will clear his mind. Within a minute of taking it, Eddie finds he
    can remember tiny things from years earlier, make connections between
    little bits of information that he’d never given so much as a second
    thought, reason with startling eloquence, and most importantly (to
    him), slam out ninety pages of his book in one sitting that make his
    publisher beg for more. Does he want more pills after all this?

    He’s not the only one who wants them, though. Despite Vernon’s initial
    claim that the pill is “FDA-approved”, it’s clear soon enough that this
    is nothing you’ll ever find in a drugstore. Whoever Vernon got it from
    (and however he got it), Eddie’ll likely never know, because Vernon is
    murdered shortly after he and Eddie reconnect. Eddie finds Vernon’s
    stash of clear little pills and proceeds to make over his life. He’ll
    need every ounce of intelligence the pills can give him, too, to fend
    off a ruthless loan shark, the police officer who wants to know Eddie’s
    connection to the dead dealer, and whatever shadowy figure is following
    him from the moment he starts taking the pills.

    In the meantime, Eddie realizes he can do far more than write books
    with his newfound intellect. In a few short days, he makes millions on
    the stock market, bringing him to the attention of Carl Van Loon, one
    of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, played by Robert De
    Niro. Carl is more than happy to benefit from Eddie’s “freak” status,
    and even cautions Eddie not to push himself too far. Eddie has the
    brains, but Carl clearly has the experience (and the resources). He
    warns Eddie to not try and become his competitor (read: enemy).

    Finally, Eddie has to deal with the drug’s side effects. He has waking
    blackouts, often finding himself across town, in strange locations,
    with complete strangers and no memory of how he got there. Withdrawal
    symptoms are worse than your standard medication, obviously, and
    stopping could mean hospitalization or worse. Since he doesn’t know who
    makes the pills or where to get more, this is his biggest problem.

    Or would it be worse to stay on the pills? Eddie claims they’re just
    making him into a better version of himself, but are they, in fact,
    changing who he is? Do they not just change what you can do, but also
    what you will do? His girlfriend, played by Abbie Cornish, once had to
    deal with a man who wouldn’t do anything; now, she has to deal with a
    man for whom there’s nothing he wouldn’t do. The end of the movie
    leaves the question of just how much the pills change you unanswered.

    Based on a novel written by Alan Glynn, this movie has plenty of action
    sequences to complement the moral dilemma it poses: how far will you go
    to become a “better” version of yourself? Like all the great science
    fiction movies, this thriller doesn’t focus on the sci-fi aspects,
    choosing instead to highlight the exploration of humanity on which we
    embark with the very first scene. And anyone who contemplates
    medication to improve their lives will certainly find a resonance with
    the character of Eddie Morra. Watching this movie may not change your
    mind, but it will certainly open it.
