This is yet another Friday movie review and this time it’s a science-fiction thriller Lucy,
Summary: A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
I was extremely happy to finally see a movie about a powerful woman because there was a huge lack of strong female characters on the big screen this summer (except maybe Maleficent with Angelina Jolie who was supposed to play the main character in Lucy as well but dropped out prior filming). And who better to play a super smart, intelligent and powerful woman than Scarlet Johansson a.k.a one of my favorite actresses. Other notable actor in the movie was Morgan Freeman, he was good as always.
I liked the idea of the movie, the interesting plot, the thought behind it. I loved that they have tackled the serious issue of drug abuse and drug smuggling because these problems are very common in today’s world. What is more, I liked the whole effect of these drugs that they enhanced our minds and power – I love scientific stuff like that.
From cinematography point, I loved wide shots of Scarlet’s eyes and all the different pupils as well as shots from inside her body; I enjoyed seeing how the drug works biologically. Plus, that driving scene looked super crazy but really fun too. Also, metaphorical scenes of wild animals and wild life flowed really amazingly with the main story of the movie.
All in all, I would rate the movie 4.5/5. I didn’t give it a solid 5 because the ending was sort of strange to me. That whole travelling through time and space ability kinda reminded me of Doctor Who. However, I liked the fact that the first Lucy and this super Lucy met at the end.
So remember, knowledge is power which you have to pass on to future generations. Have a great weekend! Bye
