Well... aside from the question if this was possible and there for feasible... I was puzzled by the reactions of all the surrounding characters. Seriously, a woman calls, tells you how to do your job and just her telling you, no there are no cameras makes you trust her?? What kind of cop is that / does that? Yeah, right, then you go and try to take her in and while she seems to turn everyone unconscious, you go: well, it's a hot chick and she does interesting stuff, why not accompany her? Oh, well, yes, please, drive my car, and I have no reason to protest any further while you wreck about two dozen cars and injure who knows how many people in the process.
And the professor? Suuure, while you initially suspect Lucy's call to be a prank, just her wiggling some technical devices turns you into a believer?
Though I don't really see the religious component of which some reviewers were speaking. But the philosophical potential suffers greatly under those poorly developed supporting characters... and being force feed all those bits and pieces ... I mean, all was well, as long as Lucy shut up - her explaining was just too much, while the end felt more as if it was just about visual effects.
PS: the trakt summary is just hilarious. So minimalistic, ignoring the main points and yet right on the spot.
I saw it in the movie theater yesterday and I constantly had the feeling that I've seen it before. To me it felt like the writer took parts of several movies/genres and combined them. Add some special effects (lots of them) and the result is Lucy.
The whole thing together just didn't do it..
I loved It. It was weird in its own way and it gets away with it. Also, I like the way this superhero is created and 'destroyed'. Incredibly interesting and refreshing IMO.
This movie could have been SO much better! It just feels like wasted potential for an amazing movie which seems to be on par with most movies these days.
'Science' lesson crossed with an action movie. I could empathise with Lucy. I took an out of date Lemsip last week and I experienced many of the side effects she goes through in the film. I tend to use 87% of my brain anyway so it was nothing new. Fear me mortals!
This is an excellent movie for the initiated. I could relate tremendously with the psychological profile of Lucy. Her strive for knowledge was detaching her away from humanity. The questionable actions she made throughout the movie explained the accelerated extent of her detachment from humanity as well... the random cut scenes in her mind were a bit annoying but exactly how some people use their imagination in critical moments.
