From "La Femme Nikita" and "The Professional" to "The Fifth Element," writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in "Lucy," an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
HitFix Reviews and Ratings
C+Luc Besson's new film 'Lucy' is completely impossible, built from a flawed basic premise, but it's also entertaining and really well-made. It may not have a final act, but up to that point, it's got energy to spare, and it is agreeably insane.
