Lucy came in very confusing at first, but as the film progressed, the message became clearer. Lucy is a very artistic movie and at the same time, very intriguing. It made me think and become amazed of the possibilities the movie is suggesting. The movie then tried to explore the capabilities of Lucy, however by the end of the film, it seems they forgot to explore her powers more. I felt there were more exciting things they could’ve shown, but they focused on one thing, knowledge. Though Scarlett Johansson’s portrayal is impressive, it seems that the addition of Morgan Freeman was not necessary and was trying too hard to convince people that he is an asset for the film. Overall the film is overwhelming, it will throw you a lot of questions and amazing visuals, but at the end of the day it still failed to capture the idea of what other things Lucy could do with her abilities.
