Film: ‘Lucy’ – “Ignorance brings chaos, not knowledge.”

I don’t know what I was expecting from ‘Lucy’, I’d heard that it was good and the trailers made it looks like an action film. It is written and directed by Luc Besson – which can be a good thing but not always.

It transpires to really NOT be an action film, and no one had mentioned Morgan Freeman narrating over animals involved in things that involved lots of bodily fluids.

The premise is that Lucy delivers a briefcase to Mr Jang without knowing the contents, things go badly and she ends up a drugmule with a new synthetic drug in her stomach.

The drug leaks into her system and starts to change her existence – namely expanding how much of her brain she starts using and giving her mind over matter style powers.

It’s not an action film, no matter how much the trailers make it look that way, it’s a weird wander with some action scenes and a lot of theoretical babbling about the nature of the brain.

I am unsure if it is a bad film or not, I got to the end, I felt cheated by and confused as to the point of the ending so I put it in the pile of media to give to my dad. Rewatching it could either improve it but I’m not convinced.
