I watched this movie in Turkey during my vacation. I was quite interested in it, as well as my cousin Irem. So we decided to go to the cinema and watch it.

The film began a bit disturbing, because I am a bit disgusted when there is too much blood in a movie. And it was disgusting to show how the drugs got mixed up inside her with her blood. However, I liked how her transformation and Morgan Freeman’s lectures were linked together.

After the opening scene, the movie started and with every scene she could use her brain better and more efficiently. No one seemed to have a chance against her. It was more of a fight against herself. I liked that somehow. It was not a typical movie with fighting and shooting scenes. It was so interesting to get an insight to such a possibility of using all 100% at the same time. I have read that the human brain has different parts, and we only use them seperately, but we have access to use all 100%, just not at the same time.

Now back to the movie and the acting part. I really enjoyed watching Johansson in her role. It was different from the other things she has done so far. And Freeman is in his typical role: The good guy who kows a lot of things. But that’s what I love so much about Freeman :)

The end of the movie confused me a little bit. I didn’t know how to interpret it. Is Lucy good? Or is she saying that we all are just cells, and in the end, when we die, we will be gone, but at the same time we will be everywhere? Most reviews and critics I have read interpreted it as Lucy being God. I am not sure what to do of that. Maybe I will watch that movie again together with my sister or so.

Well, here is the trailer:


Final rating – 8/10: A different kind of movie with a confusing end though.
