The character Lucy may be all brain, but the film is all heart.

Is it fair to assume someone may have been USING a massive amount of highly experimental, illegal designer drugs when they came up with this?

More interesting as the final panel of the 2013-14 Scarlett Johansson "what is human?" triptych than it is in and of itself.

I think the moral of the story is that drugs are awesome. So is Scarlett.

There's never any tension or suspense to the movie, because whatever Lucy faces, we know her big brain will inexplicably be able to handle it.

This sci-fi thriller, starring Scarlett Johansson, romps through space and time, thanks to the fast-paced directing style of Luc Besson. Who cares if it doesn't make sense? Can we have another, please?

It would be a stretch to call it smart, but 'Lucy' isn't stupid either, and Besson is sensible enough to allow the film to sprint with its idea until starts to get tired, and then stop.

Faster than the speed of light, Lucy is certainly the best film I've seen this summer.

Smartly conceived, "Lucy" is one of those great "what if" films you occasionally stumble across that has you thinking long after it's ended.

Lucy is more of the same mostly nonsensical gibberish we've come to expect from Late Period Besson (TAKEN 2!).

Built on an erroneous premise, "Lucy" is a creative, but hollow film that tries too hard for success.

Besson's most ambitious realization of his peculiarly exuberant notion of girl power.

Lucy is a barnstorming, breakneck bullsh**fest; a dummy stuffed with pseudoscience. It's also the most entertaining film Besson's made in years.

[A] supremely silly and pleasurable action movie.

Lucy is just a film that takes an intriguing (albeit absurd) narrative, and builds a world around it that is easy to get lost within.

A fast-paced sci-fi thriller that combines action-packed set-pieces with philosophical looks at the nature of humanity.

Luc Besson gleefully combines two of his favourite movie elements - fit women and wildly insane action - in this raucous guilty pleasure.

Rollickingly entertaining - up to a point.

A dizzyingly silly, extravagantly enjoyable sci-fi thriller.
Paul Whitington

Lucy is a brash, breezy and breathlessly paced thriller, with a high-concept plot that falls apart the moment you start thinking about it. But Besson's camera moves so fast that you rarely get the chance.
