Tuesday's Overlooked Movies: Lucy

Combine a bloody action thriller about a gang of Korean drug smugglers with ruminations about human intelligence and cerebral capacity, throw in Scarlett Johansson as an unwilling drug mule who gets superpowers when a bag of experimental drugs starts leaking inside her, and you have LUCY. This movie was written and directed by Luc Besson, which means it'll be nice to look at, have some nifty action sequences, and will strain your suspension of disbelief so much your brain will probably need an Ace Bandage after you watch it. All that said, I found it an enjoyable enough way to spend an hour and a half.

I liked it for a while but then it got too outlandish for me. She's made a lot of these sorts of movies lately.
