It was supposed to be a simple job. All Lucy had to do was deliver a mysterious briefcase to Mr. Jang. But immediately Lucy is caught up in a nightmarish deal where she is captured and turned into a drug mule for a new and powerful synthetic drug. When the bag she is carrying inside of her stomach leaks, Lucy's body undergoes unimaginable changes that unlocks her mind's full potential 100%. With her new-found powers, Lucy turns into a merciless warrior intent on getting back at her captors. She receives invaluable help from Professor Norman, the leading authority on the human mind, and French police captain Pierre Del Rio. Source: IMDB


From the Prestige to the Avengers and everything in between like the movie the Island Scarlett Johansson does another amazing job as LUCY. The movie starts off with some strange cut scenes which lend to later on in the movie but just starting out you find it a bit odd and out of place. However this was about the only thing I found to be like that and like I said the movie ties into this in the end.  

To be brief and to not "spoil" the movie for those of you that haven't seen it. Lucy was turned in a drug mule for a Korean drug lord but before leaving to her destination in Europe she refused to be abused and paid the price. However that same price caused a whole series of events that granted Lucy access to her mind, kind of like the movie Limitless with Bradley Cooper. However this movie does take it much further. Lucy finds the leading nuerologist, played by Morgan Freeman, she wants to supply him with her knowledge before she is gone.  

The movie initially starts off slow as she progresses through the amount of brain capacity Lucy accesses,  10%-60% you grow with her and get a sense of learning her new abilities as she learns them. 60%-100% progresses extremely fast at the end of the movie which during that time you learn the true measurement of human life. I almost told you what that was but then I would have given you the biggest spoiler of all.  

Definitely go and rent this movie or like we did get it from OnDemand with DirecTV. This movie is worth a solid 4 out of 5 Turtle Shells which means its a must see!  

What did you think of LUCY? Did you think it was as good as I thought it was?
