When Lucy is zooming from once place and time to another while sitting in the desk chair after reaching 80%, her first stop is the Eiffel Tower. She seems to be zooming in a certain direction, while scenery zips by in a blur, stopping at the Esplanade du Trocadéro in the Palais de Chaillot, where Lucy lurches forward due to forward momentum. She is facing the Eiffel Tower. When she zooms away, she seems to be traveling through the Champs de Mars with the Eiffel Tower receding and the Palais de Chaillot behind the Eiffel Tower, also receding. There seems to be a conflict between wanting to show Lucy's point of view and wanting to show that she is leaving the Eiffel Tower. If this shot was from her POV, the Eiffel Tower and Palais de Chaillot would be behind her at this point. See more »

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.
