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 begins to unlock her mind's full potential. 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

Goofs

Lucy first optically scans the police frequency spectrum for a specific cell phone connection and then uses the police car's radio to listen to the phone call after manually tuning it to 26.695 MHz. She should neither need to manually tune the radio, since she has control over electronic machines, nor do cellphones operate on frequencies below 900 MHz. See more »

Something to Think About!
18 November 2014 | by Sheila-agnew4See all my reviews

I went to see LUCY not really knowing what to expect. Honestly, I did not read one review prior to seeing the movie. However, someone that I highly respect was speaking about the mind and all it's magnificence when he refereed to the movie.

While I am aware that some things may have been a bit non-factual, I really left LUCY thinking about how the mind can function beyond our wildest imagination.

Watching a family member rehabilitate from a head injury due to a hit and run car accident, I witnessed each level of healing process. At each phase there was a different action from extreme agitation and constant movement to periods of calm. The doctors explained it was the mind repairing itself. Thumbs up to Scarlett Johansson for a great job.

Even though Lucy had different twist and turns that you may not necessarily associate with the message of the movie, I enjoyed that I can take something from a movie that made me think beyond the entertainment aspect.
