Couch Potato Time #3 - Lucy

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.


I have to say that this movie was pretty good. I was expecting something a little different from watching the trailers, but the actual movie still surprised me in it's own way. Lucy, played by Scarlett Johansson, who might I add was the perfect actress to play this part, wasn't injected with a drug like I had originally thought, but had come in contact with a drug that caused her brain to open up to unfathomable capacities when the bag inside her stomach, put there by her captors, had ruptured.


Through the whole movie, she was trying to figure out what was happening to her and how the drug could do what it was doing to her. She was also looking for the other people who had had bags put in their intestines so that the same thing didn't happen to them.


Morgan Freeman played a professor who had been researching the different capacities of the brain and what would happen if humans were able to unlock more than 10% of their brain. Lucy was pretty much the end of that research due to the fact that she was the only human on earth to have ever unlocked 100% of her brain's capacity.


Everyone who played in this movie were exceptional and there wouldn't be better actors to play the parts. This movie was action packed and had just enough serious life lesson parts to make it interesting.


The ending...That was a fantastic ending. "I am Everywhere." Lucy, after unlocking that final percent of her brain, didn't need the physical body of a human. She was able to be everywhere, in everything, and she shared the knowledge she had learned with the professors and scientists that she went to for help.


I give Lucy a 3.5 because even though it was good and intriguing, it still had it's boring parts and seemed to be kind of like that movie Limitless, just at a much larger scale.
