Movie Mayhem – Lucy

I have always been interested in exploring existential ideas and philosophies, to believe in something that we’re far too primitive to understand as a species and trying to wrap my head around the magnitude of it all. I’ve even gone as far as writing about it in some of my own work, even if I may only be scratching the surface of the knowledge and the abilities that could be available if we understood just one fraction of the code that makes up the universe, including how it relates to God and other higher powers. So when I first saw the trailer for Lucy, you can imagine how excited I was, not only to see what Luc Besson (a writer and director who can be very hit or miss, but whose work I do tend to enjoy) would convey through the idea of being able to tap into the full capacity of our brains, but also to see if Scarlett Johansson could lead an action film on her own merits, without the need of a band of super heroes. Suffice it to say, I was a little underwhelmed by the finished product. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
