With her new-found powers, Lucy turns into a merciless warrior intent on getting back at her captors.

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.
