With films such as The Fifth Element (1997) and The Transporter (2002-2008) series under his belt, French director Luc Besson is known for making action thrillers that are visually rich and touch on human nature and the limits of our potential.
作为《第五元素》(1997)和《玩命速递》系列电影(2002-2008)的导演,吕克•贝松以执导动作惊悚片而闻名,其影片拥有丰富的视觉效果、探讨人性和人类潜力的极限。


In Lucy, Besson’s latest sci-fi drama, he takes both action and pseudoscience to the extreme. The film is a combination of action, pop science, and metaphysical musings, and it’s probably Besson’s most entertaining project in years.
在新片《超体》中,他更是将动作戏与超自然推向极致。影片结合了动作、大众科学、以及超自然幻想,堪称贝松近些年影片中最有趣的一部。

Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is a 25-year-old American student living in Taipei who winds up becoming a drug mule for an evil South Korean drug lord. The gangster is in cahoots with a group of pharmaceutical scientists who have developed a synthetic version of a chemical naturally present in our bodies that boosts brain capacity. When our heroine’s drug haul (which has been sewn into her intestines) bursts, all of her brain’s unused power is suddenly unlocked.
片中,斯嘉丽•约翰逊饰演的露西是一个在台北生活的25岁美国学生,被迫沦为“毒骡”,为邪恶的韩国大毒枭运送毒品。同为黑帮大佬的毒枭还与一群药剂学家合作,人工合成出人体中促进脑功能的化学物质。一次,女主角体内(缝在肠子里)的毒品包装破裂,开启了她大脑中未开发的能力……

So what does this new power allow her to do? Well, the film presents the idea that the human brain only uses 10 percent of its ability. So in Lucy’s case, when the remaining portion of her brain is unlocked, she can control the universe, past and present. It’s that simple, the film maintains.
那么,她都拥有哪些新能力?根据影片的理论:人类只用了大脑10%的能力,因此,当露西大脑剩余部分也被开启时,她将可以操控宇宙,改变过去和现在。影片传达的信息就是这么简单!

However amusing that idea may sound, what’s more interesting than the power that comes with this new brain capacity is what such a phenomenon would mean for mankind.
不论这一想法听来多么神奇,相比她获得的大脑超能力,这些超能力对人类的意义似乎更让人兴趣盎然。

Johansson definitely carries the weight of the film on her shoulders. After being anything but human in her recent works–an alien (Under the Skin), superhero (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and A.I. (Her); she gets to show what humans could be if we used more than 10 percent of our brains. Steering Lucy from a tearful victim to a calmly logical assassin questioning consciousness, Johansson owns every inch of this wild ride.
斯嘉丽在影片中独挑大梁,演技可圈可点。在出演了一系列“非人类”——《皮囊之下》的外星人、《美国队长2》中的超级英雄、《她》中的人工智能——之后,她这一次展示了人类使用超过10%的大脑容量时是个什么样子。从一个哭哭啼啼的受害人,到一个头脑冷静、逻辑清晰的杀手,斯嘉丽成功演绎了出巨大跨度中的每一次转变。

Of course, reactions to Lucy will vary greatly — clearly the film will not speak to a wide audience. But if you’re interested in bookish science fiction that often poses more questions than answers, you’ll be rewarded with this thought-provoking film.
当然,对《超体》的评价褒贬不一——显然这部影片并不能迎合所有观众。但是,如果你喜欢更多引起思考而非给予答案的科幻小说,那么这部电影也一定能引起你的思考。
