Movie Review: Lucy (2014)

From imdb

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Choi Min Sik

'The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity, imagine what she could do with 100%'

Well, that's the tagline of the movie so you can roughly guess what's the movie about ;)
I always love Scarlett Johansson's movie and it's interesting to watch how the brain power can be boosted with just the use of CPH4. And she looks cool in the entire movie!

It's just that, I think the movie is a bit short (just 90 minutes). But overall, it's still an enjoyable movie to watch, simple storyline =)

Rating: 8/10

  1. This movie is showing here now. Is it a horror movie? If it is...no, thank you. I love sad, touching human dramas. Would love to see Hour-long Journey.

    1. The movie explores an unsettling idea, and there's some blood involved, but nope, not a horror movie.

  2. This must be a science fiction movie then. These days I like drama.

  3. 我很喜欢这女主角,但对露西这部电影并没有很热衷,不过我还是很想看。只不过负面评语太多了,让我没有了去电影院看的冲动,所以我要下载。希望很好看!因为你的评语就不错啊~

  7. Wah, so fast you watched Lucy already. I heard it is about nootropic drugs similar subject to the movie "Limitless" (2011). My grandmother is also taking a prescribed nootropic drug (Piracetam) to delay the onset of dementia as she is 98 years old now. I hope to watch this movie soon and I agree with you that 90 minutes seem to be a bit short for this type of movie.

    Have a good day,
    mun

  11. wow, not bad huh, looks like recently you went for quite some movie trips?? hehehehehe.. i actually planned to watch this, because i like Scarlett Johansson, and Morgan Freeman is always a very good actor, but like you said the movie is just 90 minutes which is too short lah (not fully worth that RM12 paid for mah, haha)..

    1. but my Anay told me this is a very nice movie, so i thought since somebody recommended this, might as well forget about the 90min then go and watch lah.. but then so angry, i tried to buy the tickets online last week and kept on failing.. maybe because i've just renewed my credit card, or was it because of the bank's problem lah.. so ended up, cannot get ticket so didn't watch..

  12. I think I get the blu ray for this one. Sounds like a horror movie but haven't really read up the story yet.

  17. When it comes to movies, I am really backdated.. I like simple shows, no need to crack head so much as in those like Da Vinci Code.. that one is very confusing..

  18. I love this movie very much as it was really based on some Tibetan Buddhism theories which explains about how a human mind could actually work powerfully. The last part where she started flipping back all the scenes to the past is really true when a human gets enlightened, they will be able to see the past and future like this. Many people have been enlightened in this world today but they usually keep it to themselves.

  19. I've been seeing bits and pieces of the trailer, and I must say that I really like the scene where Scarlett is pointing her gun at two taxi drivers and asking him if he spoke English. She shoots the one who says that he can't and immediately turns her attention on the surviving one. ^^

  20. Hi Hayley, how you doin'? Only last night I was watching a very TV movie, 'The Horse Whisperer'....a really nice romantic movie starring Robert Redford.
    And there was a young girl in the movie...I was telling my wife she looks familiar. And my wife replied, "thats Scarlet Johanson"! Holy Smoke!

    Can see you enjoy going to the movies. I have not stepped into a cinema years!
    Hey Hayley, drop by...you going to recognize a place you've been, if I remember correctly.
    Have a nice day.
    Lee.
