I had high hopes for this movie. Sadly, I was very disappointed! Scarlett Johansson plays Lucy, a woman who after being abducted, has been surgically implanted with a bag of something called CPH4 that she is being forced to smuggle. When the bag starts leaking inside her body, she becomes “infected” with the drug. Once in her system, it starts making her brain work at levels above normal capacity and it just keeps increasing and increasing what her mind is capable of processing. I thought everything started off well and was making sense, but at some point, it all just became ridiculous! I was expecting something like the move Limitless - not for her to turn into someone that almost had "superpowers" just because she could use all of her brain power. I get that she had changed into something so advanced that our logic can’t even comprehend it all, but that just wasn’t what I was looking for, I guess. It really did seem almost ludicrous to me!
