"The Limit", which is also known as "Gone Dark", has some interesting casting that made it attractive to watch. Alas, this story about an undercover agent that has develops an appetite for using drugs, doesn't go anywhere. The director, Lewin Webb relies in the use of flashbacks to clarify the plot, but unfortunately, that device doesn't seem to work well.

In fact, the film doesn't make much sense in the way that an older lady, May, knowing something fishy is going on with her neighbor Denny, and not acting on her instincts. Or for that matter, the nosy neighbors, who should have been suspicious as to what was going on with Denny in the apartment next door, keep on turning at May's door, but don't go to the police soon enough to have the goings on investigated. When May hears the shot that turns out to have killed Denny, she doesn't even bat a false eyelash, which in a way, doesn't make sense. In fact, May is the victim of the undercover Monica, Denny's girlfriend, who knows the older woman is the key for getting back the incriminating evidence about his demise.

"The Limit" asks a lot from the viewer. The premise is not bad, but Mr. Webb, the director and the writer of the screen play, Matt Holland, once they set things in motion, they appear as though they don't know what to do with it.

Basically, we watch the film on the strength of the cast. Lauren Bacall, as May, doesn't have much to do. Claire Forlani, who is the key figure has some good moments. Pete Postlethwaite, a magnificent English character actor and Henry Czerny, are equally bogged down by a story that doesn't let them shine, as they usually do.
