Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Many chases and shoot outs with random death and destruction throughout.
  • Lucy is grabbed, manhandled, punched, and kicked in several early scenes.
  • The whole movie is pretty intense because of the chases, shootouts, and suspense.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The plot revolves around a bag of a fictional drug. We see a junkie forced to snort a sample of it. He convulses for a moment, then laughs hysterically and uncontrollably. He is shot before it gets too annoying.
  • When Lucy's body starts to fall apart (see below), she desperately eats a large portion of the drug, covering a lot of her face in blue crystals. Her skin absorbs most of them.
