Limitless
8/10

I had a couple problems when I read the script, before the thing had even filmed. Yeah, the ending is sort of anti-climactic. The Russian gangsters are sort of stock.

Yeah what he said is true.

If you have a great story (big IF -- I haven't read it) then it could work as a young fantasy novel. Then you would have an "existing property."

Sorry, I thought Unstoppable blew monkey chunks.

I did see a student film that recreated the rooftop shootout scene from Die Hard. That was pretty good, probably online.
