That's right, this is an action film with a higher purpose. It even comes with its own Terrence-Malick-by-way-of-Stanley-Kubrick tribute.

Delves so far into scientific theories and philosophies that it rapidly becomes incomprehensible and downright existentially nonsensical.
November 20, 2020
The biggest down side for this movie was the huge absence of action sequences.
September 15, 2020
An immensely entertaining and satisfying film that thrives on the strength of Besson's visual style and Johansson's intelligent and emotionally honest performance.
July 20, 2020
While Besson has made a film that looks good and does provide some amount of entertainment, he populated it with a character that sorely lacks a pulse.

There will be those who laud this as the most fun movie of the summer, while others will condemn it as complete and utter nonsense, and somehow they'll both be right.

It's silly, it's fun.

It's like it's the prequel to "Her."
February 28, 2020
A fast and loose action movie hellbent on getting in your face and staying on your mind by any means necessary.

The whole endeavor feels like a half-baked idea carelessly patched together.
July 30, 2019
It is confidently dumb, defiantly moronic and a fine way to spend 90 minutes of time before doing something of value.

I know what you're thinking, but this is no Limitless (Bradley Cooper). As the cells multiply and Lucy taps into more and more of her brain, it's new thrills-new skills with each passing hour.

Apparently believing the film to be an equally eloquent statement on mankind's past, purpose, and future. It isn't, but with about 50 percent less pretension, LUCY could have been a fun guilty pleasure.
April 3, 2019
This undeniably silly, but raucously entertaining, off-the-wall transhumanist actioner is an absolute riot.
March 26, 2019
Lucy is not a game-changing science fiction movie. Still, it represents the return of Luc Besson to his baroque and risky approach to genre filmmaking. [Full review in Spanish]
March 22, 2019
Besson may please some with Lucy's visual fireworks and veneer of profundity, but it'll leave most feeling empty inside, hungry for an action flick with real bite.
March 5, 2019
The film is worth watching for her [Scarlett Johansson] performance alone.
February 5, 2019
Lucy might leave you scratching your head, but it's a wild ride.
February 1, 2019
A bloody fairy tale of a thrill ride that nearly jumps the tracks at every plot turn but ultimately proves to be a lot of fun.
November 3, 2018
It's sort of Kill Bill-meets-Gravity, and it's a very entertaining 90 minutes.
