3. And yes, the cinematography is generally spectacular. Some sequences are deliberately obscure, making you wonder what exactly is being depicted. Others are clearly allegorical and yet others, pure action (like a great wild car chase scene), but the juxtaposition of varying visuals to convey messages was, for me at least, a welcome story telling technique.
Straight up, this is first & foremost a science fiction film, but one designed to be taken a little more seriously than Fifth Element. Good acting, great cinematography, great pacing, decent dialog but meant to entertain. For me it did just that.
The first BIG downer, was when Lucy was repeatedly kicked in the stomach by a drug czars henchmen, when they knew the very expensive drugs where inside her belly; REALLY? The next blunder was on the part of the so-called visual effects people (there were a few of them to blame), when they used the old roll the room effect that is so old and lame, that nobody uses it anymore. REALLY?
I found the effects (or the lack of) the most offensive part of the movie, especially the growing black computer fingers; REALLY?
Not a bad movie with a 40mil budget/88 min running time, and I am sure Scarlett and Morgan got a large share of it, as it was not well spent on the production.
Compare this with the 2012 The Avengers, at 220mil/143 min running time, and you can see it was a low budget film from the start, and for that reason, they actually did a pretty good job.
But besides that, the production value is good, and it's entertaining to see her abilities in action when she's actually using them. This film tried to be more than it's 90 minute run time allowed for, but it just didn't live up to my expectations, unfortunately.
Summary: Scarlett Johansson plays a beautiful but dim girlfriend of a drug dealer. She gets talked into carrying a briefcase into a drug deal for a casual but ruthless drug lord, which gets her turning into a mule for an experimental drug. The bag of drugs is implanted in her stomach, but bursts, giving her a major overdose. But instead of killing her, the drug begins increasing her brain capacity. You know the old saying about only using ten percent of her brains? She gets to one hundred percent.
First, she gets smarter, able to escape from the drug dealers and try to find a way to cure herself of the overdose. Then she becomes physically more skilled, growing more deadly, and able to take out a roomful of men without even entering the room. Then she gains new powers over space and time. Then things really get weird.
Scarlett does an awesome job before and after portraying this super-being, emotionless yet highly skilled.
The only problem with the movie is actually a major one, which is the idea that humans only use ten percent of their brains is a myth. So the entire premise of the movie is flawed. Still, if you just imagine it being about a woman who's becoming a more advanced being, it's great.
There are some deep questions in this movie about human potential, where we're going as a species, and where we've been. The action sequences are also truly awesome. Great movie.
Lucy isn't any of them. For that movie, I create separate category and I call it "Lucy". From now on, I'll be measuring all badness by comparing it to this movie.
Seriously people if you have some self respect and want to keep it, then please don't go to cinema. Do something else fun like cut your nails, boil some water in kettle or I don't know listen to some country music or watch cats on youtube. Anything but wasting money on this piece of junk.
