With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
The movie was shot in Wirral, England in and around the town where the director, Nick Murphy, grew up. He relocated much of the action to the island off West Kirby where as a kid he had thought it would be a good place to bury a body. See more »
Review: I realty tried to get into this movie, but I found it hard to keep up with what was going on. I understood the main concept, but as for the rest, I didn't have a clue. Anyway, its good to see some of Britain top class actors working together, but its the movie that coke have been so much better. None of the characters are able to shine because the film us based around an investigation were you know exactly what happened so the whole mystery is aspect is gone. Its just a case of catch up so you end up sticking with the movie to see what happens. If this movie had any other actor in it, it would be easily forgotten, but it wasn't totally bad. Average!
Round-Up: You usually see actors like Mark Strong, Paul Bettany and Brian Cox in big Hollywood blockbusters so its good that they have come together on a British film. Shame it want a better one though! I'm yet to see Mark Strong play a leading role were he can really show his acting skills, because I do rate him as an actor. I can see this movie going under the radar because it didn't get a lot of money pumped into the distribution. Just another straight to DVD let down.
