Despite widely published reports that Angelina Jolie was originally cast as the lead, but dropped out, Luc Besson has since denied them and admitted that he only met with a couple of actresses to discuss playing the lead role. He says when he saw how strongly Scarlett Johansson reacted to the story, she immediately landed the part. See more »
Lucy tells Pierre that the mules have the drug hidden in their intestines, but the trafficking method employed by Mr Jang instead involves surgical implantation of the drug package inside the abdominal cavity. Lucy should have known the difference by this point. See more »

Normally I don't write reviews but these movie differed so much from what people told me I fell compelled to give my opinion. Because of the bad reviews I didn't expect anything at all. In fact, I expected a killer heroine who would beat her adversaries to pulp. However, I got an extremely interesting, unusual and highly entertaining story, that I found quite fascinating. Of course, it's completely unrealistically, but the whole idea is quite funny and unusual. I generally like movies which manage to introduce new ideas or differ from the same old boring patterns (Iron Man 12, Final Destination 14, Transformers 8). Lucy does that. Its just, well, cool. I absolutely enjoyed the Science Fiction aspects and seeing Lucy developing her powers was just pure gold. So if you don't break into tears because the movie operates on ridiculous scientific premises, watch it and have fun. It's different, it's interesting and its extremely entertaining.
