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.

This looks like the dictionary definition of a film that can't possibly be as good as its concept. Here's to hoping I'm dead wrong and it's awesome.

I'm interested to see more because I like Besson's work. But I'm not sure the story is going to hold up for the third act. Her exponential increase in power seems a bit too much. What exactly are her powers? Every power? What is the end result? Revenge? Why bother? She's becoming a god... why bother hunting down and exacting revenge on one man, who is essentially just a drug runner. Or is there a deeper conspiracy involving Freeman's character? Hard to tell from this trailer, which seems to be mostly filled with action shots.

I look forward to a less flashy, more story based trailer to see whether this is really worth a trip to the theater or a dvd rental.

WAYNE - 4/2/2014, 9:31 AM

KidGoku - 4/2/2014, 9:33 AM

TopCat89 - 4/2/2014, 9:34 AM
Took the 'Limitless' plot of accessing 100% of your brain's capacity via a certain drug, then gave it a sci-fi superpower twist to it....interesting!

Fan of Besson's work...especially 'Leon'....i'll definitely give this a look!

None of that shit ever happens to me when I wake up hungover. Even when I was younger and crazier. I feel cheated.
cipher - 4/2/2014, 9:36 AM
I like Besson's stuff, so yeah.

LMFAO!
NEVER!!!!!!!!!

AxeEffect - 4/2/2014, 9:38 AM
well, I'm sold
AxeEffect - 4/2/2014, 9:39 AM
LMAO @Gusto, finally tied the knot eh?
dnno1 - 4/2/2014, 9:40 AM


This is just another take on the Limitless storyline.
Shamo - 4/2/2014, 9:40 AM
People act like. Limitless invented that concept, off the top DC did it before them with Deathstroke and I doubt they were the first. Movie looks epic though.
MikeHawk - 4/2/2014, 9:42 AM
Did they just take that Korean actor and turn him into a Chinese mob boss? Dammit hollywood
Doopie - 4/2/2014, 9:43 AM
Gusto's real wife

dnno1 - 4/2/2014, 9:45 AM
@Shamo, Deathstroke got a super-soldier serum. That's as old as Captain America. The Limitless angle is just a SciFy take on the use of amphetamines to boost your mind capacity (something they've been using on people with ADD for the past 60 years). That's basically what Lucy is about with a sprinkle of Ultraviolet.

@CIPHER

'Leon' is my favourite movie...Gary Oldman was a beast!

ndwwrestler2 - 4/2/2014, 9:48 AM
@Cipher everytime I see Gary Oldman, all I think about is:
StarkAnthony - 4/2/2014, 9:50 AM
So all she had to do was get drugs in her blood? What about all the people who have already taken the drugs? Obviously someone has because someone is buying them. Did no one else think to inject them or something?
