  • Remember "Limitless," the 2011 thriller in which Bradley Cooper becomes a whirling killer dervish from a drug that lets him access 100 percent of his brain? Well, Lucy is basically the same movie with Scarlett Johansson in the Cooper role. It's not a good trade-off. show more

  • A full-out action movie - and a sober rumination on the nature of existence. It is both things, effectively and sincerely. show more

  • Scarlett Johansson is ideally cast as a rapidly evolving kick-ass hero in Lucy, a stylish action thriller that is equal parts dazzling and ludicrous. show more

    Stupid, don't waste your time. . . The previews make it seem like a high action movie and even the overview says it's about a deal gone bad and she turns on him, but it's just a bunch of talk about your brains evolution and evolution itself, then goes into some action, right towards the end it just goes into some confusing time travel backwards into time and the ending is stupid it just drops off with no explanation of what happened. . . I can't believe I wasted my time watching this movie if I could give it 0 stars I would.

    I really wan to watch this movie as I feel it is not about using 100% of the brain but a shift in consciousness. I have tried a few times and I absolutely can't bear it, it is so loud and violent and very shocking for someone quite sensetive - not helped by my not sleeping well for weeks! Shame, maybe this could be explored without the person beccomning a maniacal killer!!
