‘Lucy’ Blu-ray Review

8 January 2015 4:20 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Scarlet Johnasson, Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Pilou Asbæk, Analeigh Tipton, Nicolas Phongpheth, Jan Oliver Schroeder | Written and Directed by Luc Besson

Based on the marketing and Luc Besson’s name some may assume Lucy  will be the latest Taken clone where a scantily clad Scarlet Johnasson travels around Europe bludgeoning random thugs for our mind numbing amusement.  In fact that is not the case as Lucy shows even old directors can learn new tricks. Besson uses a La Femme Nikita set up with a Tree of Life  follow through as he focuses on some subversive existential questions amidst all the gun fights, car chases, and explosions. Ambitiousness is something to be admired, but in this instance it may have been too overpowering for the narrative to completely grasp. Interesting questions are asked…and answered. The justification and logic behind those answers are where the issues reside. »

Lucy DVD Review

8 January 2015 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Luc Besson

Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Min-Sik Choi, Amr Waked, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Pilou Asbæk, Analeigh Tipton

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 89 minutes

Luc Besson is undoubtedly a very talented filmmaker, especially when it comes to serving up beautiful, entertaining (if sometimes slightly shallow) action films. The marketing machine for Lucy attempts very hard to make it seem like this is one of those films. A rather daft premise tacked on to spectacular visuals, a badass heroine, and imaginative set pieces. That is perhaps why it is so disappointing when you realise that Besson was not at all going for that this time, and instead tries to serve up something that might resemble a cross between Limitless and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The emotional state of the audience closely mirrors that of the lead character’s as the film starts out tense and aggressive, but then grows more and more ponderous »
