But does it live up to the hype?
Well its good, but I am sure it could have been so much more! The plot is quick to get going - mystery Drug that enhances brain productivity and the relationship between the main characters is explained early on but it seemed to all come too quickly.
I have moaned before about movies taking their time to get going and this is not exactly the opposite but he appears to go from Zero to Hero in about 5 minutes with no real focus on the climb to greatness. In the story, the rise happens over 12 days but even so, a bit more of the partying and wealth spreading would not have gone amiss.
The main focus for this movie is once the Money & Skill are obtained, then the focus switches to the trials of keeping it, rather than getting it and the ever present side affects of the drug and others its affected play a heavy part.
If like my wife, Cooper most definitely floats your boat then you will enjoy it - he is his normal witty, sometimes funny self but as said before - could have done more.
Cooper fan? Then you should watch it. You will enjoy it for what it is. If not, don't bother.
See this if........................................You like the Man - not the Movie.
