Lucy​, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, is the latest action-thriller from The Fifth Element director Luc Besson. He's the director behind some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in movie history. 

So, expectations are high when you pair Besson with the butt-kicking Scarlett ​Johansson (The Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America).

In Lucy, Johansson plays a woman who, after getting mixed up with some Taiwanese bad guys, is accidentally transformed into a hyper intelligent warrior.

But according to CBC film critic Eli Glasner, the film itself is none too smart.

Glasner says Besson leaves out Lucy's humanness, so Johansson's heroine comes across as little more than a robotic blonde in a dress.

Lucy, which also stars Morgan Freeman, is in theatres now.
