  2. i would also appreciate it very much if i could read the screenplay … Thank you very much … my email is duhnkrack at gmx.de

  3. Would love to see the screenplay for “Limitless” if you could send it or provide a link.
    thanks,
    steve

  4. What I really want the screenplay for is the quote that Eddie and Van Loon both say to each other about “you not being ready to fight me”. fax4voice3 at yahoo dot com. TIA.

  5. I just saw this movie and honestly, I thought the ending ruined it. The whole movie is about this guy spiraling out of control on a crazy drug, blacking out, committing murder, all while getting higher and higher. Toward the end he seems to hit rock bottom (when he drinks the blood of a man he just killed to get one last high). But then it cuts to a scene where he’s miraculously off the drug with no lasting consequences with all the benefits still remaining. In my opinion it didn’t fit in with the rest of the movie at all. It sounds like the book’s ending fit more with the tone of the rest of the story.

    Also I write for a website called significanceandcinema.com and a friend of mine reviewed this movie so you should check it his review of Limitless!

  6. I agree the whole… “am I still on it or not.” ending was kind of lame. In the script he is all powerful at the end, but it’s pretty clear that he is still on the drug because they are contributing to his campaign. The movie decided to go all “Inception what if” on us. Bad choice IMO.

    You should read the book! It’s very good and it sounds like you would like the ending.

    Cheers.

  7. I saw the film and yes, they kept the middle finger in the vault. I wondered where they came from, the hands, since he already had the other guys hands in that box.

    Anyways, can I have a look at that script?

  8. He got the hand in the box, and then put the had in the vault to say “fuck you” to whoever would rob him. I think. It was as dumb in the movie as it was in the script.

    Hopefully someone can anonymously send it to you. Unfortunately, I cannot.

  9. He placed the hands in the vault? That’s not just cold, that’s evil. He knew the guys before…
    He did voice over that the apartment was owned by a bigtime armsdealer before, so maybe it was placed there by the previous owner…
    about the script, even if I left my email address lala.girly(at)gmail.com ?

  10. Lauren, he’s supposedly “tweaked” the drug, so there are no side effects and it is better in that he now can see the future, all of which he tells Van Loom by the limo.
    His girlfriend now accepts his “new self” so no longer takes the moral high ground.

    The hands in the box, good plot device, thinking of it now they are sent from the Russian gangsters, but whose are they, his bodyguards?

    I thought it a great film, better than the Source Code and one I will watch again.
    I also am intrigued to read the novel.

    If script is available please send

  12. I saw the movie in Innsbruck, in German, and loved it. I just saw it again in English, and loved it better. I have the ‘movie tie-in’ book on order at Amazon.

    I would love to see the screenplay, if possible.

    Merci!

  13. Hi, I read the book a while ago and absolutely loved it. Yes, the ending was bleak, but it fit the whole story.

    I saw the film and was massively disappointed by the ending. I was actually wondering about the way they would end it and thought that they might tweak it just a little, but that ending was dumb. I’m not a big fan of happy endings for the sake of it and that ending just reeked of deus ex machina.

  14. I’m not good with words, but I love movies.

    I would like to know if anyone else heard what Eddie says at the end of the movie? After his girlfriend says she would recognize him in the street. Did he say “Well I’m a new man” or did he say “Or in a van” ?

  15. Hi,

    If you are in a sharing mood, and would like to give back, i would love to be able to read what ever version you have of that Script.

    Thanks in advance to whom ever takes 5 minutes from their busy life to e-mail it to me.

    Daniel

  16. Hey,

    I’ve been looking everywhere for this script and would be eternally grateful if anyone spares a few seconds to send it to me too!

    Cheers x

  17. I just saw Limitless on DVD. Hated the beginning, wasn’t sure why he was living in a dump through most of the middle, didn’t understand the severed hand, hated the sharp toolbag climax, but was very impressed with the end. I agree the writer, director, editor and the actors all did a good job. I’d like to read the script if anybody’s got a spare copy lying around.

  18. hi,
    i love the movie and just read the book. I would like to read the script/screen play as weel for analysing reason. If you like to share it it would be great.
    Thanks in advance. Cheers Kirk

  19. I just finished the book, I felt bad for Eddie.
    I liked how in the movie he realizes (since he has all that extra brain power) to think ahead and get someone to make a continuous supply of NZT (MDT in the book) as well as find a way to carry it on his person.
    In the book the author got my hopes up when he bought those chemistry books, but screwed everything up with the secret phone call deus ex machina stuff.
    It was not a bad book, not at all, I am just saying I preferred the movie
