If Only... (14)

Hi everyone! Now that it's officially summer, Ishita and I have decided to get back into blogging, perhaps not to the full extent that we did previously, but in some context just to keep things flowing. So without further ado, let's take it from where we left off!

If only Lucy were a book.

Haven't heard of the movie? Here's a taste:

In a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts, and corrupt cops, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is a woman living in Taipei, Taiwan who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman, due to accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity.[6] She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and chooses not to feel pain or other discomforts.
So I'm definitely cheating a little with this one because Lucy hasn't even released yet, but my goodness, I'm dying to see it. I'm a huge fan of both Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, and I think a written format would make for an amazing action/adventure, thriller type of novel. Granted it would probably fall into an adult genre rather than YA/NA due to the age of the main heroine along with the violent content, but nonetheless, it's something I would love to read.

I know some people tend to have an issue with the far-fetched, unrealistic idea of humans not using their full brain capacity, but quite honestly, I'm in it for the sheer entertainment value of the film, book, or both. Also, badass female protagonists? Sign me up!
