LUCY [/Z2STARS] ★★★★ Di­rected by Luc Bes­son. Star­ring Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Mor­gan Free­man, Amr Waked

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Jo­hans­son ex­cels as a drug mule who gains su­per-hu­man pow­ers after ac­ci­den­tally in­gest­ing her cargo. The rapid progress of Lucy from ami­able dope to master killer to un­stop­pable de­ity is a de­light to be­hold. Thanks to a steely per­for­mance from Scar­lett, gal­lop­ing edit­ing from M Bes­son him­self and lush cin­e­matog­ra­phy from Thierry Arbogast, it proves pos­si­ble to dis­re­gard the id­iocy and make one­self be­lieve se­ri­ous ideas have been in­cor­po­rated into the id­i­otic may­hem. I love Lucy. 15A cert, 89 min
