Lucy (Luc Besson, 2014) was an interestingly bewildering film; fundamentally flawed as science fiction, and just user-friendly enough to spin a weak and mostly lukewarm story. 262 more words

Lucy, Review

Finally Luc Besson decided to tell the world MY story (in a way). Everybody knows that humans use just a small portion of their brain, around the 10%. 363 more words


Lucy: That’s Pretty Co…Wait, What the Hell??

Writer/director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Family) never strays far from the bizarre when given the chance. Unfortunately, unlike his cult classic The Fifth Element, this exercise in the sci-fi mysterious is far closer to absurd than intriguing. 628 more words


Lucy - Review - no spoilers

Wheeeee! an action flick with a (hot) female lead that didn’t devolve into crazytown and/or sexist tropes! :D I think the best thing about this movie is the character gets smarter as it nears the end. 292 more words



Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is an average young woman on holiday in China, but when her boyfriend of one week (Pilou Asbæk) gets her involved in drug trafficking a strange new substance, she ends up unlocking her whole brain (as opposed to the widely-debunked myth that we only use 10%), and through it develops incredible superpowers. 434 more words
