Director: Neil Burger. Cast: Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish. 105 min. Rated PG-13. Thriller/Sci-Fi.
In a twist on the Jekyll and Hyde story, an out-of-work writer stumbles upon an experimental pill that significantly heightens brain activity, rendering him a genius in every field - with deadly consequences. Works decent as a thriller, and Cooper (who's always played supporting roles up to now) proves he can single-handedly manage an entire movie. But that's all.
