New Lucy Movie Delivered Cool Action,Special Effects & Extremely Weird Ending

Universal Pictures released their new action/thriller flick, “Lucy,” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out and thought it was very entertaining, yet pretty damn weird all at the same time. The special effects were cool as well as the action scenes. It stars: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman.

In the new flick, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is just a regular, hard-partying, 25-year-old American woman living and studying in Taipei, Taiwan. However, she gets sent down on a very different path when her boyfriend ,Richard, forces her to help him deliver a strange briefcase to a man named Mr. Jang.

From there, the action picks up into high gear as Lucy is kidnapped by Jang’s men and forced to open the briefcase as they’re afraid of what might be in it. After learning that the contents is actually a highly valuable synthetic super drug called CPH4 that can increase the user’s brain function capacity, they knock Lucy out to perform surgery to sow the drug into her abdomen to transport it for drug sales in Europe.
