So this week, we watched “Captain America: Civil War“, AKA “The One Where Everybody Fights Everybody Else”.
So having recently achieved an unexpectedly positive response to the Luc Besson film “Lucy” — my wife stayed awake for fully 45 minutes! — I decided to bump up another Besson film that had been languishing for a while towards the bottom of the queue: “Léon: The Professional“.
So a month or so ago, we saw “Lucy“, an action film in which the titular character, played by Scarlett Johansson, accidentally receives an overdose of a new illegal psychotropic drug, develops superpowers, and kicks epic amount of gangster ass. Or so it would seem from the trailer, would it not?
I went in expecting something along the lines of “The Matrix: Black Widow”, but as it turns out, the trailer pretty much showcases every action scene in the entire movie. Is that bad? Let’s ask my wife.
