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.
