I'm a Luc Besson fan, but this is one of those movies that looks so over the top that it's boring.

A girl with unlimited power? What is there interesting to expect? She gets powerful, they go "oh no!", and (I'd imagine) the story goes with her starting as a weak character, then getting close to being consumed by her new power, then finds her way back to a semblance of humanity.

I'd like to be proven wrong, but I expect this to be basically 'Salt'+'Limitless'.

*shrug* it's an ok movie but it squanders a ton of potential.
I found that the middle section where Lucy is learning what she's capable of could have been a good 30 minutes longer and the movie would have been better for it.. the ending was disappointing especially with the very short running time.

I won't give it a letter grade, but on a thumbs up/down it got an up from me.

I've had this movie pre-ordered for awhile now. Amazon tried to cancel it, when they couldn't give me an estimated ship date. Then, they gave me an estimated ship date, and just recently, it was moved again. Six months seems like a long time to wait for a film to hit blu-ray after its release date now days.

That seems curiously late for a movie that released in the Summer. You would think they would want to get some holiday sales.
