Summary: Fun and exciting in places, full of plot holes in others.
Lots of great fight scenes as Lucy develops incredible powers. And a great car chase scene through Paris. It's fun too watch, and it's a short film, so it doesn't get boring. But the plot is full of holes. The 10% brain myth is annoying, as is Lucy developing super powers. Mind reading? Telekinesis? The ability to send magnetic signals? All because she's smarter than average? It's crazy. And worst of all was the end. Why are we concerned with bad guys chasing her when she has these super powers? Couldn't she just flatten them with a tiny thought? Surely she must be aware they are there. Plus why does she become something special when she achieves 100% of brain use? What's so special about 100% vs 80%? There's quite a lot of necessary suspension of disbelief required to enjoy the movie.
