I was excited when I saw the Lucy movie trailer. Days and weeks ticked by while I waited for opening night. However, I was derived of what could have been an awesome movie.
- First, this movie does have Scarlett Johansson, but it has nothing to do with the Avenger movies or her character in those movies.
- Second, it does have Morgan Freeman (yay!).
- Third, the movie was way too short, and did not (in my opinion) have a satisfying ending.
What I did like about the movie:
- Strong female character after she first ‘evolves’
- All of the Morgan Freeman scenes
- The part where Lucy meets the first female Lucy in ancient times and nearly copies Michelangelo painting of God and Adam.
- At one part, when she is nearly invincible, the bad guys call her a witch
My rating 3.7 out of 5
I would have loved the movie more if they cut out the back and forth movie vs. nature scenes. And if they had gone much slower with her abilities. Explained more. Had more fight scenes instead of the giant leap to her being all powerful.
I almost felt like the entire movie was a trailer – a long trailer and they only gave you tidbits to peek your interest. It could have been so much better.
I’m glad I saw this movie, but would have been just as happy to wait for the DVD or the matinee showing.

Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and contemporary romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
