Lucy (Luc Besson, 2014) – Luc Besson’s Lucy is an absolutely insane attempt to fuse comic book action storytelling with grandiose philosophical pretentions.

While it never quite lives up to its hype as being an exact clone Escape from New York in space, Lockout manages some moments of cheesy fun and some decent action sequences.
