Lucy, 2014.

Directed by Luc Besson.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton, Amr Waked, Choi Min-sik and Pilou Asbæk.


A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Although it’s a complete fallacy, there is no denying that the scientific hypothesis that humans only use 10% of their brain and are capable of so much more is an intriguing one. So why the hell is it that no one can muster up an entertaining movie surrounding the concept? Limitless was admittedly a decent movie, but ultimately all Bradley Cooper did was use his extra brainpower as a get rich quick scheme. Don’t get me wrong, I would totally do the same thing in his position, but as a slice of pie in the crowded medium of film, it just wasn’t the most entertaining movie to watch. »
