Goofs

Lucy first optically scans the police frequency spectrum for a specific cell phone connection and then uses the police car's radio to listen to the phone call after manually tuning it to 26.695 MHz. She should neither need to manually tune the radio, since she has control over electronic machines, nor do cellphones operate on frequencies below 900 MHz. See more »

User Reviews

 
A mix of science and fiction?
6 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I think bad reviews come mostly from people who want to show other how good their science is. Fair enough, this film starts from the premise that humans only use 10% of their brains and Lucy can break this barrier and reach a whole new level in human evolution. This leitmotiv was quite smartly picked to raise interest,although scientifically inaccurate. However this film excites the mind of those who REALLY know physics and know how few limits there are in what we can achieve in pushing our evolution through science to become indistinguishable from magic. "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." I personally enjoyed every bit of the movie and, as it took me to a journey into the far far future, where humans can overcome their humanity and become real Gods.

Enjoy this film and let your mind explore the impossible.
