Bernie's Movie Breakdown: "Lucy" Bernie

For quite some time, humanity was interested how our brains work. Numerous questions, theories and myths were created to tackle this important question and a few of them are: do we use it to our full capacity or is there a certain percentage available to us and others parts are locked due to not being able to access it; are we "made" not to get it all in a bunch?

I guess everybody has their own interpretation on this matter and I would like to hear your opinion on this: if you can spare 2-3 minutes of your time and post in the comment section below.
So what does this have to do with the movie?

Actually, this movie shows what could a human be capable, if he/she used their brain capacity at 100% efficiency. A popular belief was that humans use around 10% of their brain; others say we use all of it, but not efficiently. You can look upon different studies to reinforce your opinion on this matter but, weather we use 10% or more, efficiency could be the key, after all what is 10% if, you are not being efficient at it?

"Lucy" shows us, if we reached a certain level of brain use, we would lose touch with what makes us human perusing other goals, and as usual, there are bad guys who want to prevent that: not because they know what she can do, but what she has with her. I won't reveal what.

The concept of the movie is very interesting and mysterious, especially at the end, the casting is good but some scenes were humorous, like the floating Asians. And for effect people, there are some stunning video sequences who will keep your eyes peeled and focused.

And with that thought I will end my review, my advice is to see the movie, get back on this topic and comment.
