Goofs

Lucy had moved beyond the constraints of her humanity, but chooses to give her knowledge to the assembled scientists. Despite this she showed zero concern for the potential injuries and death caused by her erratic driving in the race to the hospital. She was already multi-tasking well enough by then to have protected anyone effected by her driving, perhaps wrapping each person or car in a force field to keep them safe, thus keeping her integrity intact.

Unusual, interesting and highly entertaining
6 October 2014 | by gnanagSee all my reviews

Normally I don't write reviews but these movie differed so much from what people told me I fell compelled to give my opinion. Because of the bad reviews I didn't expect anything at all. In fact, I expected a killer heroine who would beat her adversaries to pulp. However, I got an extremely interesting, unusual and highly entertaining story, that I found quite fascinating. Of course, it's completely unrealistically, but the whole idea is quite funny and unusual. I generally like movies which manage to introduce new ideas or differ from the same old boring patterns (Iron Man 12, Final Destination 14, Transformers 8). Lucy does that. Its just, well, cool. I absolutely enjoyed the Science Fiction aspects and seeing Lucy developing her powers was just pure gold. So if you don't break into tears because the movie operates on ridiculous scientific premises, watch it and have fun. It's different, it's interesting and its extremely entertaining.
