[6.75/10] Lucy (2014)

Lucy (2014)

Quick Review: Call it ludicrous, call it pseudoscience, call it ambitious, or whatever you like, but aside from the weak final act that feels rather forced, and the fact that it should have had a little bit more action, "Lucy" is a sheer entertainment on steroids, that will surely glue you to the screen even in its silliest and most absurd moments, thanks to the Luc Besson's vigorous direction, and the fierce performance by Johansson, who carries the movie with confidence and appeal, proving she's very good at acting.

Almost went to see this but saw Hercules instead. Not much else coming out this month so still might see it.

It's been released a week later then Hercules, so I managed to watch them both. Go see it, if you have the chance. It's great fun.

Oh, is this the one where she walks down the hallway, puts up her hands, and people part like the Red Sea? :O)

Been considering going to see this. Seen everything else worth seeing at the moment. So may check it out!

LuAnn, yep, she's in control of the situation. lol. I know..it's a bit far-fetched, but it's fun, admit it. :)

Jason, I was surprised by its success. To be honest, I thought Hercules will take over. Give it a shot, it's not bad at all. ;)
