Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Limitless...

Violence: Frequent violent altercations occur in this film with fists, guns, knives and other weapons. Many of these result in injury and death. Innocent people are blithely murdered, including a man who is shot with a slightly humorous implication. Blood effects are numerous, including a scene showing a man lying dead in a pool of the red liquid—then another man is shown drinking the blood. A character stands at the top of a building contemplating suicide in two different scenes. A death is attributed to unseen assailants that killed a man while searching for drugs. A violent car accident occurs. A character vomits from drug related symptoms. A man becomes a very adept fighter after taking a drug. A character discusses detailed ways of torturing and killing people. 

Sexual Content: A man uses drug induced intellectual powers to seduce three different women (one of them is married to his landlord) in scenes that depicts them beginning to have sex—one of these encounters also includes some sounds. A man is seen without a shirt.

Language: Infrequent profanities, scatological terms, religious exclamations and other mild words are used.

Drugs and Alcohol: A fictitious street drug is at the core of this movie’s story. It provides users with enhanced intellect and skills that include (among many other benefits) the ability to drive very fast without any danger, gamble and consistently win, invest in stocks and multiply the capital many times over, and be able to connive women into having sex. While some negative consequences are portrayed, the end of the film presents an unrealistic and positive conclusion.
