Once again, I was lucky to get the invites to Nuffnang's movie premiere screening of "Lucy".

Having a strong line-up of Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Choi Min-Sik and Amr Waked; the story was about a young American woman was tricked into working as a drug mule to deliver a highly valuable drug, but unfortunately the drug bag broke and a large quantity of drug went into her system. Since then, she began to acquire powerful and enhanced physical and mental capabilities.
I was hoping the movie to be action-packed, but it kind of went down the sci-fi route halfway through the story. It reminded me of The Matrix. Although most scientific ideas in the movie are yet to be proven (some might say they are merely myths), but it's really interesting to see the possibilities of how humans might become, if we are able to use 100% of our brain. Also, I find the part where they uses some documentary footages actually help the audience to understand more of the sci-fi/scientific theory, also the feelings and emotions of Lucy.

When it comes to acting, I think Scarlett Johansson is really a talented actress - from the initially timid Lucy to the highly intelligent less-human Lucy during later part of the film. She managed to bring out the contrast of two different characters. The ending of the movie might leave some confusion or questions of what actually happened to Lucy, but I like that they gave the audience something to digest and think about after the movie.

Thanks to Nuffnang once again for the #NNPremiereScreening of this movie #LucyMovie!
