DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Sci-Fi - While the advertising sells a big fight-heavy action film, this science fiction thriller is fairly light on action and becomes more about heady ideas. Fans of Scarlett Johansson should nonetheless enjoy this starring vehicle. Morgan Freeman has a fairly small supporting role. While there is less action than expected, there are a lot of special effects as well as scenes of bloody violence that make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good This is a fine, quirky sci-fi offering that will appeal to those who aren't in the theater for the reasons most people will be.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'Lucy' is a fun, confident work. It's fast and tight and playful even when it's sadistic and violent, which is often...The movie is alive. It pops.

USA Today Full Review
Good It's tough not to be dazzled by this operatic action film's blend of pop-philosophy, biology and silly delirium.

NY Post Full Review
Good ScarJo's brain kicks butt in action flick 'Lucy'

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 123 moviegoers:
VERY MIXED REVIEWS! It's uncommon to see reviews this mixed. As you can see, about half of all the groups indicated that they either loved "Lucy" or enjoyed it very much. The remaining half mostly rated it a "good/average" movie but quite a few rated "Lucy" low to very low. I would highly recommend that you read all the content information we provide as well as the detailed opinions and movie type information before deciding if this movie is one you might enjoy.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In Besson's story, we meet Lucy (Johansson), a carefree young student living in Taiwan who is tricked by her boyfriend into delivering a briefcase to a business contact. Before she can even comprehend the situation in which she's become ensnared, Lucy is grabbed and held hostage by the merciless Mr. Jang (CHOI MIN-SIK). When his thugs surgically implant in our heroine a package loaded with a powerful synthetic substance-one that would likely kill her if it were to leak-her terror turns to desperation. Alongside a handful of fellow unwilling hosts, she is sent to the airport with the objective of flying across the world as a transport vessel for material that is priceless to her kidnappers.

When the chemical is accidentally unleashed in and absorbed by Lucy's system, her body begins the unimaginable: her cerebral capacity is unlocked to startling, and previously hypothetical, levels. As she attempts to comprehend and incorporate the incredible changes in her mind and body, Lucy begins to feel everything around her-space, air, vibrations, people, even gravity-and develop superhuman traits including telepathy, telekinesis, expanded knowledge and breathtaking control over matter.

While the substance continues to awaken and unlock every dormant corner of her mind, Lucy races across the planet to enlist the help of Professor Samuel Norman (Freeman), whose decades of research on the brain's potential makes him unparalleled in the field...and the only person on Earth with the ability to see where this might lead.

Aiding Lucy in her quest to reach Dr. Norman is French police Capt. Pierre Del Rio (AMR WAKED), a dispassionate officer who commands his bureau. Although disturbed by Lucy's seemingly inhuman powers-ones that are growing by the minute- Del Rio would sacrifice his own life to protect the young woman who looks to him to retain the last vestiges of her humanity. Relentlessly pursued by her former captors, who will kill anyone to extract their product from the woman who has become their biggest adversary, Lucy begins to turn the tables and transform into a warrior evolved beyond human logic.
