LUCY - Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman - New Media Stew Movie Review
John Basedow (@JohnBasedow) reviews ‘Lucy,’ starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, with special guest Krystin Goodwin (@KrystinGoodwin).
MOVIE DESCRIPTION - LUCY
LUCY is set in a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupt cops. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman, due to accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and cannot feel pain and other discomforts.
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
