What If One Pill Could Change Your Life?
Have you ever been stuck inside your own mind with a million ideas, but no way to get them out? Have you ever tried to write a book, but felt overwhelmed by the huge task?
If you haven't good, but if you have... then you're probably a lot more like Eddie Morra than you know.
"Limitless" tells the story of Eddie Morra(Cooper), a complete waste of a man whose full of great ideas, but weak on clarity.
Well..that is until he finds a magic pill that opens his eyes to a whole new world, a new landscape of possibility with limitless potential.
And it is in this new world that he finds his true calling and tastes forbidden fruits within the tree of knowledge.
The Power Of NZT
If only all our moments of low motivation and lack of direction could be solved with a pill. Just imagine...it's Tuesday morning and you have a report or some other cognitive endeavor to complete before 2pm and you haven't even started.
What if unlocking the power of NZT was the answer? What if by taking one pill you accomplish in 15 minutes what would take a normal mind to accomplish in 3 weeks.
That's the power of NZT! But, it's not without peril, it's not without flaw. You see, in order to achieve supremacy over one aspect of your life, others areas may suffer in the process.
Eddie Morra didn't think about that before he took the plunge and the events that follow in the film illustrate his journey.
The Price Of Pristine Clarity
If you thought the dangers of rapid genius would only include poor social functioning and a slight loss of mobility, you are sadly mistaken.
Try ducking bullets and evading treacherous criminals that are all fighting to obtain what's inside your mind.
You see when you're functioning on a level that no one else can achieve and or even conceive, you will become a target.
You will be challenged by powerful men such as Carl Van Loon(Robert De Niro) and shunned by beautiful women like Lindy(Abbie Cornish) unless...you can find a way to beat them all.
And if you can't..can't find a way to beat them all...You can expect everything you've worked so hard to achieve in your heightened state to come crashing to the ground.
