Summary: I love this movie! I saw it with a friend and had to buy it. I've watched it several times since then. On one hand, it's the perfect fantasy. On the other, it is presented logically and becomes very believable. Great cast, excellent scenery. Watch it!
Excerpt: A down at heel writer is offered a brain-enhancing drug after a chance encounter which seems to be the answer to all his problems, but soon he begins to encounter some adverse side effects that threaten his new life.
Summary: This is one of my favorite films. I highly recommend it. Bradley Cooper is not only a believable junky-like Eddie Morra, but also the sophisticated one, towards the end. This film is a perchance to dream type, allowing you to imagine if taking one little pill can really enhance your brain.
Summary: This movie is exciting and original. An action movie with smarts that rises above the usual dreck. Bradley Cooper shines as Eddie Mora, a struggling, unorganized writer who is going nowhere fast. A chance encounter leads him to a drug that transforms his brain and the speed of his cognitive powers.
Worth watching but a few times maybe, Not the type I would keep around

Summary: Great Movie and well thought out with very few junk parts, On topic most of the time and good actor profile. The things I would have liked to see changed in this movie: They really should have made the mob type bad guy more of a clean politic type, A few parts where just too far out of a normal...
Summary: The premise of this movie is what we believe in the back of our minds - There is a magic pill that will make us more than we are. Pick your poison - caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, steroids, cocaine, blood doping, etc.
