After his years of supporting roles were followed by his huge success in "The Hangover,"" Bradley Cooper proved he had the goods to "open" a movie on his own with this fantasy-drama.
He plays a creatively blocked writer turned into a genius overnight by an untested drug that puts the entirety of his brain to use, attracting the attention of a tycoon (Robert De Niro) with less-than-upstanding plans to benefit from the new gift. Abbie Cornish, Anna Friel ("Pushing Daisies") and Johnny Whitworth also star for director Neil Burger. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; alternate ending. *** (PG-13 and unrated versions: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
