* Posted last August 13, 2014 at Mga Pahina ni Msbolin, this blog entry can now be read at Momi Berlin. Momi Berlin loves to watch movies and does review. And the flick “Lucy” was not spared.
We both like Scarlett Johansson. Thus, we watched “Lucy” last night. After an hour and a half of sitting inside a nearly jam-packed 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 a great ability to transfer information from gadgets. She was able to read the mind of humans and even of all living things — trees included.
Or the movie was like the Twilight saga with Lucy capable of telepathically extracting the locations of the drug mules from the mind of the Korean mob boss. In the film, Lucy can be an Alec (one of the Volturi guard twins). She was able to incapacitate her victims. She can be a Jane as well (Dakota Fanning’s character). She was able to inflict pain on 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. She eventually came 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 Momi Berlin and Smash.
