Lucy

Angie - AV March 06, 2015

In this Sci-Fi thriller, the title character Lucy (played by Scarlett Johansson) gets caught up in a drug deal that turns into a nightmare for her:  a bag containing a powerful, synthetic drug is inserted into her abdomen and she is being used to smuggle the drug into a foreign country.  The plan changes when the bag containing the drug bursts, leaking it directly into her body, and Lucy decides to get revenge on her captors.  The story follows the effects of the drug on the human mind, and the unimaginable changes and super-human powers that occur to a person when their mind is unlocked beyond the standard 10 percent that the average person uses.  While the storyline can definitely be seen as far-fetched, I have to admit that it is interesting to consider that there is an “unlocked” portion of our mind and explore the possibilities that come as this potential is reached.  This film kept me interested to the very end, wanting to know what happened next as Lucy inched closer and closer to unlocking her mind’s full potential.  Overall Rating:  A-
