Movie Review: Lucy

08:30


On bank holiday Sunday my boyfriend and I went to see Lucy. It was a spur of the moment type thing and I had seen a couple of trailers, but didn't know too much about it.

From the trailers I thought it would be very similar to Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper. It is similar, in some aspects. Limitless is about a struggling writer who takes a drug that allows him to use all of his brain, and he becomes this wealthy, genius but also with that comes risks.

Lucy's storyline is while in Taiwan, she becomes part of a task to become a drug mule and carry this drug to Europe in her stomach. However, the drug begins to leak into her blood stream and she can slowly begins to increase her brains capacity, and she sets out to kill the people who put the drug in her stomach in the first place.

I did enjoy the film, it's good to go in and see something different and interesting but also makes you think. Scarlett Johansson was great, although for half of the film she has to act fearless, but it didn't come across as too wooden which was good. The effects were pretty cool and I really liked a certain scene where she is near 100% and can control time.

I would recommend this film, even if you have seen Limitless as the two do differ, so you shouldn't be going in with that in your mind. The soundtrack was pretty cool, and I'd say it's one of the better films in the cinema at the moment. (Apart from Guardians of the Galaxy)

Have you seen this film? What do you think?
