“LOVE “LUCY” By theresa dellacampagne
I Loved It! This is just what I want for an entertaining night out at the movies. Of course it is science fantasy, yes there is too much killing, car wrecks, silly pseudo-science, but it is so much fun. “Lucy” has been compared to “Limitless” (another of my faves) and I agree. But SJ does great, sometimes subtle, acting that is amazing to watch. Imagine yourself suddenly able to see all, hear all, feel all, do all…..and know that you are coming apart literally. Check your high expectations for truth and fact at the door. See this movie for the sheer pleasure of entertainment.
“I Love Lucy!” By Ed Brodow
Just saw Lucy, the new Luc Besson film starring Scarlett Johansson, and loved it! Lucy received tepid reviews proving once again that the people who are paid to review movies live on a different planet than I do. Besson has a talent for creating fast-paced yet quirky films with lots of well-staged and crisply-edited action. (I am especially fond of The Professional.) Lucy moves like lightning and its 88 minutes seemed longer but only because it was so exciting. Some reviewers seem disappointed that it was not more cerebral. They are missing the point. Lucy is great entertainment, period. Given what has been coming out of Hollywood of late, that is good enough for me. Johansson is terrific as a woman who achieves 100 percent use of her brain. The supporting cast is perfect, ranging from Asian baddies who are very bad to the French police who are very French. Script and direction are excellent. Forgive me, but I love Lucy!
“Entertaining stylish hokum presented with glossy flair” By J. M. Fitzpatrick
Luc Besson’s Lucy is a triumph of film making style. It’s flashy, with scenes featuring stylised violence, a thrilling car chase, allusions to “2001- a Space Odyssey”, Scarlett Johannson in Christian Louboutin killer heels, and even a designer drug. The story is quite simple: an involuntary drug courier is pressed into service, and she accidentally ingests the designer drug she is carrying. This results in her developing super powers, based on unleashing the unused capacity of the brain. It’s hokum, but it’s presented in an entertaining fashion- taking you on a sometimes violent yet always visually compelling ride. Well worth watching if you enjoy M. Besson’s work.
