We both like Scarlett Johansson, thus watched Lucy last night. After an hour and a half of sitting inside a nearly jampacked movie house, we ended up disgusted.
The flick was neither deep nor impressive. It was terrible. It was like watching Matrix minus Trinity and Neo with all the man flying in the air movement.
Or it was like seeing X-men but Lucy, the lead character, was the only mutant in the movie. This female lead had great ability to transfer information from gadgets and read mind and thoughts of humans and even of all living things — trees included.
Or the movie might also be like the Twilight saga with Lucy capable of telepathically extracting the locations of the three other drug mules from the mind of the Korean mob boss. In the movie, too, Lucy can be an Alec (one of the volturi guard twins), able to incapacitate her victims. She can be a Jane as well (Dakota Fanning’s character) who can inflict pain to her victim through her mind.
As the flick progressed, it seemed that Lucy was somehow synonymous with God with all her acquired powers and growing physical and mental abilities.
There was a scene as well when lead character Lucy began spacetime traveling, eventually coming face to face with the earliest known human ancestor species, Lucy.
Again, the flick tried its best to be so ambitious that it turned out to be so ambiguous. A total disappointment to both msbolin and Smash.
