Storyline

It was supposed to be a simple job. All Lucy had to do was deliver a mysterious briefcase to Mr. Jang. But immediately Lucy is caught up in a nightmarish deal where she is captured and turned into a drug mule for a new and powerful synthetic drug. When the bag she is carrying inside of her stomach leaks, Lucy's body undergoes unimaginable changes that unlocks her mind's full potential 100%. With her new-found powers, Lucy turns into a merciless warrior intent on getting back at her captors. She receives invaluable help from Professor Norman, the leading authority on the human mind, and French police captain Pierre Del Rio. Written by LeiaSolo

Great movie
4 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lucy is a quickly paced movie. Much of the beauty is found intellectually, with a good mix of black comedy.

I enjoyed this movie so much that I would pay to see it again!

Besson is evolving just as much as Lucy evolves in this movie and you may even find it thought provoking. The movie probably require an audiences with certain level of scientific education or open mindedness in order to understand or appreciate what's going on In the story line Besson manages to successfully transform a drug heist movie onto a very good sci-fi thriller.

Not for those who can't see outside the box, or are guided by a puritanical or religious culture
