”It took me 10 years to be ready for this. I’ve got a pretty good foundation of friends and family that will always keep me grounded no matter what. But I don’t think I would have been ready for it 10 years ago. So I’m really happy with the way it worked out. You need to learn how to do this. You need to learn how to keep your cool, learn how to be a leader on set, learn how to act. F—-, I still know I’ve got a ton to learn. It’s all a learning experience. I’m going to school every day.” [x]
Sorry for all of the Lucy spam, but dammit people….it is a campy, yet very well-done, science fiction film.
It. Is. Not. Supposed. To. Be. Realistic.
Go see it and form your own opinions, stop riding on HuffPo’s coattails.
Luc Besson’s Lucy may be the most daft and blissfully idiotic science-fiction movie you see this year. That, of course, shouldn’t prevent you from seeing it, because the truth is that this odd hodge-podge of the cerebral and sensational is one of the summer’s most purely entertaining experiences. There’s not a bit of the ridiculous science that makes any real-world sense, but Scarlett Johannson, playing the titular drug mule who gets a mental upgrade via synthetic CPH4, forms a demented partnership with Besson’s visceral styling to deliver a B-movie delirium the film’s trailers barely hint at. As much fun as breathlessly devouring a dime-store pulp novel on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Lucy is a delightfully eccentric addition to the crazy French director’s filmography.
that movie fucked me up so much, i dont get how people say it’s stupid they clearly don’t understand what the hell this movie was about, yes it’s science fiction, yes it maybe couldnt be true yes it’s a movie BUT MAN IF THIS MOVIE DOESNT MAKE YOU THINK SO HARD THEN IDK WHAT THE FUCK CAN. I’LL BE LAYING AWAKE ALL NIGHT THINKING ABOUT THAT MOVIE.
