Synopsis

Scarlett Johansson plays a bewildered American who's shanghaied in Taiwan by an Asian drug gang only to become superhuman when the drug she's had sewn into her - a synthetic, brain-boosting hormone - leaks into her system. As the gang try to get their product back, the new Lucy finds her mental capabilities expanding beyond the limit of human comprehension. Morgan Freeman is the neuro-boffin trying to get his head round it all as action maestro Luc Besson conducts his most surprising, head-spinning, and splendidly enjoyable thriller in years.
