Scarlett Johansson as Lucy
In case you need a motivation to watch this movie, probably the picture above is enough. And I will not comment more on that in this post… well, that will be difficult…
Now, on the movie, the plot is interesting enough. Flaws? Probably lots of them. I did not really though on that while watching. If you know you are watching a Sci-Fi movie, let it go, and trust it. Do not try to rationalize. Of course, some inconsistencies can make a movie worst. But although some can exist on Lucy, I do not think they ruin anyhow the movie.
Also, the “National Geographic”-like interrupts are, somehow, interesting, although annoying on specific parts. Nevertheless, an 8/10@IMDB. Scalett’s fault too, right.
Scarlett Johansson @ The Avengers
Great movie. Not because of Scalett (but it helped) but mostly because of Iron Man (aka Stark). He is too fun. There are some great scenes with Hulk as well. Probably the one with less sense of humor is the Captain America.
When you watch one of these movies you are not expecting a great story (the story is the usual one). You are watching for the action and probably the special effects. For The Avengers you can count as well with tons of jokes. I think I laugh more with this movie than with some known as Comedies. Very good work. 10 in 10 at IMDB.
Getting back to the girls (you know me), I am waiting for the Black Widow movie. It needs to come out. Please! We want an action movie with Scarlett as main character. This is specially needed because Marvel doesn’t have that many woman heroes. I think this would make is justice to woman. And of course, we men, like to see Scarlett jumping around. Nevertheless, I need to say that Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are sexy woman.
Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2 or 2 Iron Men, that is the question. Good movie on digital effects, some good acting, and good music. Probably you are asking, music? Oh hell yes, they play Queen, Another one bites the dust. Given that I do not want to tell the story, I can summarize the movie as Iron Man, another Iron Man and, yes, yet another Iron Man. And a set of droids. And this already includes some spoilers. Fun, and action. And Scarllet Johansson making good action scenes. It is good to see some fight without the sound of metal. Oh, and of course, it is good to watch a girl, well, a beautiful girl, fighting. Voted 8 in 10. Probably too exaggerated. But some scenes (including Iron Man eating a doughnut in a doughnut) make my day.
Eva Mendes @ The Spirit
I had this movie in my queue for some time. I remember a lot of fuzz because of this movie. And now that I’ve watched it, I can’t understand what all that fuzz what about. The story is the usual, for superheroes movies. Something, like a spider of an injection, it is the same thing, make the man a superhero. He has an alter-enemy. And they fight. Occasionally, there are girls. Oh, and regarding girls, this movie was stuffed with them, starting with Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson or the also cute Jaime King.
The only thing that makes this movie different is the way it is filmed. But ever that, although interesting, is not great. It makes the movie difficult to understand on some scenes.
Voted 5 on 10, at IMDB.
