A garish, trippy, wildly uneven and finally quite disarming piece of work, graced by a moment-to-moment unpredictability.

Buoyed by Johansson's presence, Besson keeps his entertainment machine purring. He may be a hack, but he's also a reliable entertainer.

The end of the movie goes completely off the rails, but in a way that is charming in its stupidity.

Earns points for its unpredictable treatment of its vaguely superhero-ish premise and an appealing silliness, but it struggles to match wits with the genius at its center.

This film looks so very nice but I was wishing there to be better acting. I am mostly a big fan of ScarJo but this was not the best role for her even though she is so beautiful there was not much to believe in her performance. I don't think that is ttrue about the brain as well I thik we all use lots of the brain and not only ten percent.

Yes, this movie is about the possibilities, probabilities and theories of what we can become if we can efficiently use our minds at its 100% potential and capacity. If you keep an open mind, then this movie can perhaps inspire you to think and see how far and wide can you actually indulge your imagination in the process. For this alone, I really enjoyed...

Leaves The Matrix for dead and awoke my senses. For those running on less than their share of 10% will probably miss the plot all together, but for those who have theirs turned on and running, will see that this film was very well produced and stands out as one of the best films I have seen. Has flash backs of "Koyaanisqatsi" and "What the Bleep!" weaved...

I had high hopes for this movie. In the beginning i was highly impressed and really enjoyed it however towards the end I felt it got a bit stupid and silly... very unbelievable and it seemed as though the end of the film was a rush. Nonetheless an interesting concept, however don't expect to be satisfied with the ending

Except for the violence I found this movie enjoyable to watch. Lucy having withdrawal symptons and needing more of "blue" to reach the 100% brain capacity. She does a time travel sequence, didn't see Adam and Eve, but what a spectacular starry vision from the hubble telescope. Morgan Freeman's lecture in a university environment made me want to return to...

I really enjoyed this film. First of all a female led action science-fiction is always going to have a plus in my books. Also the film was shot in several locations around the world, pushing the future to just beyond America. But what really sold me is that the filmmakers took really sci-fi concepts of the future and brought it to a more mainstream...

This is a surprisingly good movie.Sure it is not about reality,it is science fiction.One needs to not take this film too seriously and over analyze it,but just sit back and take in the concept of using 100% of the human brain. Because she is able to use more of her brain she can now change the situations that come up.It is an interesting idea. The fast...
