Right off the bat, I have to say: Lucy is a strange film. But that's actually a good thing. The trailers and advertising make it look like your typical Luc Besson action pic, and while it does hew to some of his usual clichés, it's got a lot more ambition under the hood. The story's quite straightforward: Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is forced to be a drug mule for a Korean crime boss named Jang (Choi Min-sik). He surgically implants a pouch full of a new designer drug into her abdomen. The pouch ruptures and massive doses of the drug is released into her system, unlocking the full potential of her brain. But it's what Besson does with the film after that point in the story that'll surprise audiences... Here's an excerpt from my full review: 3.5 out of 5. Although you wouldn't know it by looking at it, Lucy is one of the year's most polarizing films, sure to leave some moviegoers scratching their heads and others grinning from ear to ear. It's a far cry from your prototypical action movie, nor is it your standard sci-fi fare. It is, however, enthralling through and through. And it's proof that Luc Besson still knows how to captivate an audience.
