This review is full of spoilers and plot summary. I highly recommend you skip “Lucy” as it may be the worst movie I have ever seen, but going to give that warning.
I went to see Lucy with my wife last night. The previews looked cool, I like Luc Besson and I like Scarlett Johannson. I read a horrible review of it but I thought I would give it a chance since it was the most interesting option at the movie theater.
It was absolutely horrible. Horrible, ridiculous setup. Seems like there should be much easier ways to transport drugs that with stomach surgery. Horrible druglord.
And when she becomes “enhanced” she just acts more and more like in a major mania where she should be hospitalized, while taking something like cocaine and angel dust. Kind of like Charlie Sheen when he was “winning.”
And she kept needing more, and was supposed to be somehow “enlightened” and could go through communication media.
Also if she had all this power couldn’t she stop the drug lords without a shooting sequence?
And all of the animal cut-outs were ridiculous and annoying too.
Luc Besson is a very talented director. This could have been a good movie but it was just horrible.
The idea that we only use 10% of our brains isn’t true. The concepts Morgan Freeman’s professor character gives for more “cranial capacity” are ridiculous. The idea that more brain power makes you worse to people is insane. Lucy’s lack of compassion for humanity is terrible.
Awful, horrible, ridiculous. Although I think this could use Rifftrax. There is so much to make fun of.
