From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Lucy also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.

In that sense, viewed like that, it is OK. I personally didn't like the comparisons with videos of wild cats cut in which were meant to raise the dramatic effect of the entire thing or even make it totally basic, humans=animals governed by the basic instinct that sort of thing, but,to me, it just made it cheesy.
The result is a confusing story that ceases to make sense as soon as Lucy can control those around her. After that, all of the action scenes become pointless, as she, "can control those around her". Then once she is able to control things like gravity. Well. Let's just say there isn't much tension created by the bad guys anymore.
I think it's a good idea, half-hatched, that ended up in the hands of someone who applied a formula to it in order to squeeze out "successful movie" type profits. It's really too bad. The premise and the main theme weren't terrible. What they turned those two concepts into is a blatant attempt to cash in on a sellable idea.
Rent this if you like action and "what if" movies that don't remain plausible. Like that date with the hot chick who only wants you to do her homework for her. You know how it's going to pan out, but you go through with it anyway.
