I watched Limitless with Alice last weekend and again last night. The first 60-70 minutes of this film are fantastic. Really exceptional. I loved the feel, the writing (by Leslie Dixon), the acting, the atmosphere, everything. I could have done without the Russian mob and the silly chase with the mystery bad guy and the main character's girlfriend, but up until the ending I was totally hooked, thinking this film was as good as Fight Club. Then came the ending. I hated it. It felt like totally the wrong note to end on. It rang false. It's sad when potentially great films end wrong.
