IT’S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO LOVE “LUCY”
We had no expectations when we walked into a screening of “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson, and it turned out to be an amazing movie. If you loved Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element, The Professional, or La Femme Nikita, you will be hooked on Lucy! It has all the futuristic elements and surprises that Besson is noted for. He loves strong female characters like Milla Jovovich, and Scarlett fills the bill here. Scarlett’s party girl character Lucy is exposed to a new drug that accelerates her mental powers and a group of terrifying Chinese gangsters are determined to get the drugs back. Great story – great visuals – don’t miss it.
