I read some nice reviews and was intrigued enough with the story line, the director and the cast to venture out in incessant rains to go to a theater to see Lucy on Monday.
Total time spent inside the theater – 2 hours including advertisements, previews etc. The film itself was only of an hour and forty minutes duration and that was the biggest plus point of the experience.
Credible performances by the director Luc Besson, Morgan Freeman and Scarlett Johansson could not make the storyline come alive without resorting to mindless action and violence. If the subliminal message is to showcase how a woman can be illtreated by the system, it does not come out very clearly. The high decibel level of the soundtrack was another irritant and overall, the experience was something that I could have done without.
If you are interested in half baked science fiction, and are willing to put up with what I had to endure, by all means give it a shot.
