In an interview on March 8, 2014, (evening news on France 2), Luc Besson said that this project took ten years to become a reality. Also, he admitted that he knew that some scientific assumptions were erroneous, e.g. that humans use only ten percent of their brains. Nonetheless, he said that "(such an assumption) would be a great start for a sci-fi movie". See more »

We watched LUCY about on DVD February this year. I usually don't like the typical shoot- them-up or speculative-futuristic or robotic movies, they turn me off because they are predictable and way over the deep-end of ridiculousness in their violence, special effects, contradictions and same-old-same-old tin spaceships, weaponry galore, and silly story; like the script and story were just thrown together for the sake of selling something at the box office or TV. LUCY, is excellent, credible beyond the usual mush and the action and actors are great. If you like a good story that will touch your heart, make you cheer and hope, take you to possible scenarios and just enough chaos to make it interesting, good actors and a great story, then you most like will like LUCY. My husband and I often have different likes and opinions but our differences came together in appreciation of LUCY.
