Lucy, Scarlett
From a brief moment, there was a time to be excited about a new film from Luc Besson. But that was a long, long time ago when he was making movies like "La Femme Nikita," "Leon: The Professional" and "The Fifth Element." But these days he seems content to knock out drivel like last year's "The Family," his transparent awards contender "The Lady" all while helping stuff like "Taken" and "Brick Mansions" get made. Anyway, Besson is back behind the camera, this time for "Lucy," and yeah it looks about as exactly as underwhelming as you might guess.

Review: ‘New World’ A Familiar, But Satisfying & Well-Executed ‘The Departed’-Esque Thriller

On the page, the set up for Park Hoon Jeong’s “New World” is almost a cliché, the story pivoting around a cop caught in deep cover in the midst of a crime syndicate, looking for a way to the end assignment, only for forces on both sides of the law to squeeze him to a breaking point. In Hollywood, both “Donnie Brasco” and “The Departed” popularized the concept in the recent years, with the latter a remake of “Infernal Affairs” which itself spawned a trilogy. So the question for “New World” is: does it bring anything new to the equation? Nope. Does it do this formula well? Yep.
