Lucy ***1/2

Tricked by her boyfriend, Lucy (Scarlet Johansson) finds herself an unwilling drug mule, surgically implanted with a powerful synthetic substance. But when the chemical is accidentally absorbed by Lucy’s system, her cerebral capacity is unlocked to startling levels.
Highly charged, super-slick, irresistibly delirious nonsense, Lucy takes its bonkers premise to the max… and has a blast in the process!
A highly-charged, revolution-overtakes-evolution, drug-fuelled hit of sci-fi action, Lucy punches fast and hard, to deliver a short, sharp, shock-to-the-system of fantastically flawed, ferociously fun, entertainment… elevated even higher by a class turn from a compelling lead actress.
Bonkers. But in a good way. It’s the best we’ve seen from Monsieur Besson in some time.

Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Amr Waked
