Limitless (2011) takes an interesting idea and completely ruins it. It’s about a pill that amplifies your focus and attention capabilities to a max and gives you unlimited access to every possible memory. Which in combination makes you very clever of course. Yet because drugs are bad you go onto a downward-spiral once you are off it. Unless – you can afford to keep the pills coming, then you learn to overcome it’s dangerous side-effects and eventually make your brain adapt to stay in hyper-mode without the chemicals.

So, why was there a need to include gangsters and shootouts in this story?
