Luc Besson’s films haven’t really received many good reviews over the past few years and unfortunately his latest release, Lucy, did nothing to change that. Starring both Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, this film had the potential to be pretty damn great, but it fell short at just about every hurdle. The film follows the story of Lucy, a student who is forced into becoming a drug mule with a packet of a new drug, CPH4, sewn into her. Her passage takes a turn for the worse when she is violently attacked, causing the drugs packet inside of her to burst. This releases a very large amount of the drug, which increases the user’s brain function capacity, into her bloodstream. Lucy immediately begins to develop powerful mental talents such as telekinesis, the ability to absorb information instantaneously and mental time travel to name a few.
