Long Story Short:
A woman accidently becomes a drug mule, but the drug that is stored in her stomach leaks and spreads in her body. Driven by revenge she uses her new gained “senses” to find and kill the people who did this to her.

Review:
Judging by the trailer I was expecting a bad ass movie with nothing but action sequences. I have to admit the action is pretty satisfying, but not enough, and the storyline – the little that there is – is too simple. There are many slow parts and I caught myself dosing off twice.

Lucy is one of those movies that could have been a very intriguing and impressive short movie but as a 90minutes spectacle it just wasn’t enough, and when I actually thought the movie is gaining substance and going somewhere it was over.

I have heard of many boycotting the movies since the information about the human brain and how much we are able to use was not accurate, so why watching a movie that pretends to be based on facts but turns out to be based on thin air?!

My suggestion: Watch it at home if you have the need to see a movie with a few good action scenes and convincing performances by Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, but don’t expect to be educated or blown away.

Rating: 5.5/10

  1. Yeah that theory of us only using 10%of our brain was disproved years ago… but it had a good idea but I think it just went too fast through it… this almost should’ve been like a series of movies with more going on that just some drug dealers she had to kill… plus her losing her humanity the moment she got a bit smarter was a bit off putting… you barely got to know her before she became someone you couldn’t relate too… if she would’ve stayed humanish long enough to really get to care for her would’ve helped a lot… and seriously… a zip drive… that was so anticlimatic…
