"Lucy is forced to be a drug mule. But, when the drug gets into her system, she turns into a super-being with telekinesis abilities, martial arts skills, and the helpful bonus of being immune to pain."

"She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can't feel pain and other discomforts."

Sound cool!

Looks interesting.

(But I don't know if immune to pain really is as good as it sounds)

It isn't. Being completly immune to pain means to be able to keep going when others can't, but also means that you won't know when your body i about to collapse. It's a very double edged power.

Luc Besson is best known here for the post-apocalyptic LE DERNIER COMBAT (1983), the original version of LA FEMME NIKITA (1990), which inspired a Hollywood remake and even a TV series; and comic book/sf extravaganaz THE FIFTH ELEMENT (1997). I loved Scarlett Johannson's brief turn as THE BLACK WIDOW in IRON MAN 2 -- it brought back the spirit of Emma Peel in THE AVENGERS. I hope LUCY gives her a chance to shine as the star.

P.S.: One black comedy element from the original NIKITA movie that was carried over into POINT OF NO RETURN (The Hollywood remake) was Victor the Cleaner, who is supposed to dispose of an inconvenient dead body but doesn't have enough acid to do the job, and ends up adding to the body count.

I like the fact that they're taking hyper-awareness as the main base for her abilities, I hope this will develop well.

Luc Bensen can either be the worst thing on the planet for movies or one of the most exciting directors. Its not that you don't know which your getting its the things that hit high can flail-usually (but not always) when he aims for an idea of what the mass market wants.

Reading this synopsis. Not sure which. But if he films that synopsis it may be something. Its rare one sees these days such elaborate drug metaphors.

That io9 link sounds very cool indeed! Sort of a cross between My Super Ex-Girlfriend and Yosh's Serena. But did they just give away the ending??

Probably... the opinion on IO9 is that every geek wants to know the ending (book or movie) to decide if its worth indulging in. Reviews must have spoilers.

Kind of a reversal from mainstream thinking, but I like it, given I share the same opinion.

But of course, I also like a cloudy day more than a sunny one, so I'm twisted. Gotta be to love the great Northwest.
