Ep. 04-27: Lucy (2014)

When Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is forced into delivering a briefcase, the once-carefree student is abducted by thugs who turn her into a drug mule. She is surgically implanted with a package containing a powerful chemical that leaks into her system, giving her superhuman abilities, including telekinesis and telepathy. With captors in pursuit, and her mind developing at a rapid rate, Lucy seeks a celebrated neurologist (Morgan Freeman), who she hopes can help her.

Lucy

We’re back in France with Luc Besson at the helm and, though our first venture (The Fifth Element, 1997) was more comedic, this one is an action-packed cerebral thrill-ride. Join us as we discuss the pros (casting, visuals) and cons (science, logic, and its lack thereof) that make this such a memorable film. Listen, as Johnny has the Keys is captured by Korean mafioso, forced to be a drug mule, and, via accident, gains access to the full potential of the human mind.

Join us as we discuss this earlier effort of theirs and where it places amongst classics like Memento, The Dark Knight, and Inception. Listen as Johnny Has the Keys escorts you to a world of magic, where things are never as they seem, and often success comes with a steep price.
