Lucy Movie Review (2014)

The Good: The special effects create very nice visuals for the movie. You can clearly see that from the trailer. There are some cool scientific theories that get tossed around that will make you at least wonder about the possibilities. If you like super powers, there are plenty here on display throughout the movie.

The Bad: If you were expecting for Scarlett Johansson to kick butt the same way she did as Black Widow in Avengers, think again. Some of the movie felt a bit rushed in terms of her acquiring all these new powers. Her powers also seemed to be random and more animated than anything. It just felt like something was missing either from character or from the story as a whole that could've made this movie a tad bit better. Oh and the ending may leave some people a tad bit disappointed.

The Reason: This movie looks like a random assortment of like multiple movies all jam packed into one. Think something like The Matrix + X-Men Movies + Limitless + Jumper + Tron = Lucy. If you don't like those types of movies, then this movie isn't for you. It really goes in a far off direction and may lose people with how animated it comes off in some parts. While it was obviously the goal of this movie to push the limits and all, I don't think it'll translate well for most audiences. Only go see this if you really liked the trailer. I'm not sure if I'd say it is worth a matinee viewing unless you just really like Scarlett Johansson. Renting it is a big maybe too.

The Rating: 6.5/10
