Lucy

Lucy is the type of film you leave the cinema smiling after. It's ambitious, ludicrous and utterly flawed. This is the whimsical output of director Luc Besson who probably undertook the whole endeavour as an incredibly serious affair. Imagine The Raid with Terence Malick flourishes. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) has been forced to internally traffic CPH4, a drug which expands brain capacity leading to kick-ass super hero invincibility coupled with a physical morphing meltdown. Interspersing the 10% to 100% ramping up effect of this drug with nature montages and hallucinogenic internal digestive sequences leads to a thrilling and  disjointed experience. Throw Morgan Freeman into the mix as a superflous scientist who dials in his sincerity and you've got a heady caper. This is the definition of cinematic OTT. Still I left the cinema smiling. / Michael McDermott
