This one was originally titled “The Dark Fields”. It’s a thriller, based on a book by Alan Glynn, and stars Bradley Cooper (“The A-Team”), Robert De Niro (“Little Fockers”), Abbie Cornish (“Bright Star”) and Anna Friel (“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”). Neil Burger (“The Illusionist”) directs. Verdict? Looks OK… nothing one would race out to see, but it may encompass more power than the trailer gives it credit for. The poster (also below) looks better.
Here’s the official synopsis :
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fueled action thriller about an unpublished writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret smart drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself. His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this darkly comic and provocative film.
