I knew Lucy had mediocre ratings, but I made a bad calculation that watching Scarlett Johansson for 142 minutes will be worth my 3$.
This movie was unrelenting not just in terms of story, but also in terms of bad acting, screenplay and logic. I usually forgive bad screenplay and acting,if the story is gripping. But, a story with no central logic is just plain horrible even in my book. Basically, I think the director, could not decide whether to make it a documentary or a commercial movie.
Lucy is a movie about a women, who ends up in a drug trafficking racket by accident. The mafia cut her up and put the drugs in her abdomen and use her as a human suit. The story takes a turn from here when the drug leaks into her body and gives her a hold on her brain consumption. I got this much from the trailer, but I though it would be a Scarlet’s version of limitless, where she will win the world with her new gained brain functionality!
But the movie turned into a crazy mashup of events with no logic whatso ever!
First,Lucy is using 20% of her brain capacity, but then, she just pulls a bullet out of her body. Pain is a stimulus that lets the body know that it is hurt, how can an enhanced brain turn off a stimulus and why would it?
Then, she starts interpreting other media like radio waves or mobile signals with out any object to capture, agreed that the increased brain capacity might make us susceptible to certain frequencies that are out of our reach for now, but the sensory organs adapting to do the same, in such short time (read hours) is a drag and seemed farfetched.
I am no expert on brain functionality, and I could be wrong, but as an audience, I would have appreciated a little more detail into how Lucy could do what she did. Morgan Freeman’s character was supposed to do exactly that, but instead, spent time to educate us on how animals reproduce, earning the film it’s R rating.
Also, Super human Lucy just goes on a killing spree with all that extra brain functionality, but leaves the ultimate don boss with just knifes in his palms.
Superhuman Lucy changes her attire (read hair color) in a second to reach france, Given that she time-travels towards the end of the movie, there is a fallacy in the logic of the movie. She also keeps vaporizing for no reason.
But the ultimate ending for the movie is when she turns into a super computer and hands over Morgan Freeman, a pendrive that possibly contains the secret of Big Bang Theory. It is not disclosed whether the knowledge she is passing on is a word doc or a powerpoint presentation or a video. Jokes apart, The movie just had no beginning and no ending and was a waste of time.
If you’re ever feeling this world is not perfect, remember this.
why do the teenage mutant ninja turtles wear eye masks? they’re fucking humanoid turtles. who the fuck is going to see them without the eye masks and be like, oh you’re probably some other sentient humanoid turtles not the ones that fight crime.
