| Original and Intriguing Thriller
The aspirant writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is a complete loser and has been just dumped by his girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) that sees no future in their relationship. While walking back home, Eddie meets his former brother-in-law Vernon (Johnny Whitworth) on the street and Vernon gives the experimental drug NZT to him to increase his creativity to write his book. Eddie uses the drug and the results are impressive, increasing his brain capability and he decides to seek out Vernon to ask for more pills. However Vernon is murdered in his apartment and Eddie calls the police, but the finds the NZT hidden in the stove with a large amount of money.

Eddie uses the drug and successfully invests the money that belonged to Vernon, calling the attention of the financial world. Then Eddie borrows US$ 100,000.00 from the dangerous criminal Gennady (Andrew Howard) to increase his own fortune, but Gennady takes one pill by force and uses it. Meanwhile, the powerful investor Carl Van Loon (Robert De Niro) brings Eddie to work in his team in a merging operation. But Eddie is chased by a stranger and pressed by Gennady that want the NZT, threatening his life.

"Limitless" is an original and intriguing thriller with the story of a man capable to use the full capacity of his brain. The film is full of action and developed in fast pace, with Bradley Cooper's character experiencing ups and downs while using the experimental NZT in a permanent mouse-and-cat game. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Limites" ("Limitless")
