Lucy (Scarlett Johannson) gets caught up in a deal gone wrong and ends up as a drug mule for a new drug. The bag leaks inside her stomach and it unlocks her minds full potential and leaves he ready to take on her captors and get the ultimate revenge.
This film should have been great, it had such great potential and the story concept was brilliant, unfortunately for me it just didn't resonate on screen for me!! The action is great and Johannson is great stealing every scene, unfortunately she leaves everything else in the shadows including the storyline. The French Police Captain (Amr Waked) is a useless wet lettuce who blindly follows this random woman into a ridiculous battle for no apparent reason, when technically he probably should be arresting her!! Morgan Freeman's professor Norman adds no real value to the proceedings he just appears to be a narration to explain what is happening to Lucy (which in fairness helped me to understand what the heck was going on as at more than one point I had NO IDEA!!)
This has been raved about and many 'professional' critics think this is great. I have to disagree, although the story concept was clever it just didn't play out well enough for me. I spent most of the film waiting for the story to start and then the film ended... Oh!
Might have been a winner for most but not for me, over hyped and mostly a disappointment for me. Although gaining a growing love for Scarlett Johansson in the last year so that's something.
