LUCY – Review by Kristy Puchko

lucyThe first thing you need to know about Lucy is that it’s not the movie its trailers would have you believe. Flaunting Avengers star Scarlett Johansson as a no-nonsense gunslinger, its trailers suggest that Lucy is a wall-to-wall action-thriller with a healthy dose of science fiction. However, the latest from writer-director Luc Besson is far more cerebral than these ads let on. While a non-stop Johansson-fronted action vehicle is something I’d gladly see, what Lucy offers is a bit more rich, though perhaps too rushed to sell its grander premise.
