What I thought of… Lucy #Movie #Review

Finally got around to watching Lucy last night. I really like director Luc Besson so I had very high hopes. Were they met? I’m not sure.

It was a very good film, but I was kinda left thinking that Mr Besson had come up with an idea, written a screenplay, secured two of the biggest names in Hollywood, and then started filming, when a few days thinking between having the idea and writing the screenplay might have resulted in something absolutely amazing. Something on a par with The Matrix when that first came out and we all went “Woah!”

I remember Neil Gaiman saying something along the lines that a really good story is the combination of TWO good ideas, and that’s what this film needed; ANOTHER good idea, to combine with the one it has.

The concept is similar to Limitless (it could almost be a prequel) which in my mind is the better movie, trailer here

Let me know what you think of Lucy. The trailer is below or here.

Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times. Now, Peter spends his days – most of them, anyway – writing. "The Truth About This Charming Man" - published March 2016 - is his second novel. Some say it's funny. Some say it's romantic. Others say it's bonkers. But then they said that about "The Good Guy's Guide To Getting The Girl" (his debut) - who are all these people? Rumour has it that a third funny romantic bonkers novel is just around the corner. He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, staying slim and dating. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy. Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.
