Heady and trippy, "Limitless" mixes old school thriller ("The Manchurian Candidate," "Charly"), with hyper CGI stylization ("Fight Club," "The Matrix," "Inception") with uneven but mostly positive results. After getting hooked on a test drug that transforms him from passive dreamer into gifted genius, writer Eddie (Bradley Cooper) achieves short-lived fame and riches, but then must pay the piper. The audio/visual quality is superb but the seemingly tacked-on extras make this title a title that only Cooper fans will likely feel compelled to own.
