Rope over abyss

Lucy (Luc Besson, 2014). Chinese gangsters in black suits and ties, French cops, imaginary drugs, racist horror, casual and obnoxious violence, Tree of Life fantasy, borderline experimental structures and edits, berserk pseudo-science and high-speed nonsense and Scarlett Johansson growing ever more post-human in her third and easily worst advanced-being film of 2014 (after Her and Under the Skin) but better still than anything she gets to do for Joss Whedon.
