A Twist at the End of Limitless

December 22, 2022

I have been watching Limitless with Chris Hemsworth. It involves great outdoors videography that the National Geographic crew is famous for, combined with sometimes questionable scientific claims and Chris Hemsworth doing ridiculous stunts. The mini-series is woven together with the idea that Hemsworth is looking for ways to live a longer life.

Finale (Semi) Spoilers Below

The last episode went in a different direction from everything that preceded it. If you are a fan of Nathan Fielder’s The Rehearsal you can skip straight to the finale and feel at home. Hemsworth is moved into a senior living facility with a mix of real seniors and actors to experience life as himself in fifty years. The machismo of the previous episodes melts away to reveal a story that is emotional and human. Bring a box of tissues.
