“It was supposed to be a simple job. All Lucy had to do was deliver a mysterious briefcase to Mr. Jang. But immediately Lucy is caught up in a nightmarish deal where she is captured and turned into a drug mule for a new and powerful synthetic drug. When the bag she is carrying inside of her stomach leaks, Lucy’s body undergoes unimaginable changes that unlocks her mind’s full potential 100%. With her new-found powers, Lucy turns into a merciless warrior intent on getting back at her captors. She receives invaluable help from Professor Norman, the leading authority on the human mind, and French police captain Pierre Del Rio. Written by LeiaSolo”
I was a tad bit disappointed with this film because I don’t feel as though it hit the climatic point. It felt bland. Dull. Missing more. It had POTENTIAL to be amazing! However, I felt it missed that mark. I probably won’t ever watch it again unless there was nothing else on TV. One thing I sort of liked, sort of, was how her personality completely transformed. She began as a regular person showing nervousness, apprehensiveness, disgust, joy, etc. Once she gets exposed to the crystals, she becomes almost robotic; no sense of emotion.
Rating: 2.5/5. I probably won’t watch this ever again. Ever.
