Bradley Cooper leads up this story of a down-and-out man who transforms his life with a little help from an experimental drug. It asks the question “what would you do if you could use the whole of your brain?” and manages to be an action movie at the same time. Though Robert DeNiro is on the poster, his screen time is quite limited.
It’s an interesting premise, fairly well executed, but with plot holes you could drive a bus through. Not a bad Friday night popcorn movie.
