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
In 2014, Lucy was the most successful French movie outside of France for the past twenty years, when UniFrance started creating statistics about French movies. With $463 million, 52.1 million admissions outside of France, and 5.2 million admissions in France, Lucy was more successful than Taken 2 (2012), The Fifth Element (1997), and The Intouchables (2011).

When Lucy uses the visual analogy of a car traveling faster and faster until it disappears from sight to explain that "Time" is the most important thing, this is incorrect and misleading. If an object were to travel so fast that it appears invisible, as depicted in the video, it wouldn't actually disappear. In fact, it would essentially create a wall along its path. This effect is analogous to the nature of atoms in which subatomic particles revolve around the nucleus of the atom at such great speed that it keeps the atom together which results in the formation of matter according to particle physics. Therefore, the car would not disappear as suggested in the video segment, but rather transform into an impenetrable wall of energy encircling the Earth along its path, as it approached infinite velocity.

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.
