Entertaining. Not your usual drug movie set in New York City. Twists, turns, suspense, action. Some intriguing camera work. Bradley Cooper plays Eddie Morra, a divorced, down-and-out writer who has lost his muse and is losing his sensible, down-to-earth girlfriend (Abbie Cornish). Just when he is hitting bottom, his former brother-in-law gives him a way to get out of his loser rut – an experimental drug that has limitless possibilities. And, he’s off!, on a rollercoaster ride with not-so-good consequences. Robert DeNiro plays a no-nonsense moneyman, who becomes extremely interested in the new Morra.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
