Limitless, the Neil Burger directed flick that probably went by the working title: "Bradley Cooper Cleans Up Real Good," gives the audience insight into what life might be like if we could master 100% of our brain capacity.

The results are that we become even more selfish, more dangerous, and more destructive. Who woulda figured?

Like some of Burger's other films, Limitless uses interesting visual tricks and imagery to tell the story and keep the audience focus. The acting, especially that by De Niro, seems flat by comparison. The ending attempts to be clever, but is predictable and annoying.

Even for someone like me whose percentage of brain control is in the single digits.
