Luc Besson’s (The Fifth Element) Lucy is kinetic and superbly stylish. An excellent Scarlett Johansson stars as the titular character, a 25-year-old living in Taipei whose boyfriend – under the thumb of his Korean mob boss and drug lord – tricks her into becoming a drug mule. When a bag of the synthetic drug CPH4 is sewn into her abdomen and it accidentally enters her bloodstream, Lucy experiences enhanced mental and physical capabilities including telekinesis, mental time travel and a talent for violence. Who can stop her now? Co-starring Morgan Freeman, it’s a jubilantly violent, action-packed return to form for Besson.
“Propulsive and fun” Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
