"Set in a futuristic world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts and corrupted cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, 2069 AD, works as a drug mule for the mob. The drug she inadvertently takes goes into her system, changing her into a metahuman. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts."So her role as "The Black Widow" was just in training for this? Sorry if this makes me read ignorant, but hey, it was fulfilling while it lasted … meanwhile Luc Besson is back, and with him comes "high concept" films, and plenty of spectacle - which I thoroughly enjoy, brainy or brainless - so I am IN!
