Lucy had moved beyond the constraints of her humanity, but chooses to give her knowledge to the assembled scientists. Despite this she showed zero concern for the potential injuries and death caused by her erratic driving in the race to the hospital. She was already multi-tasking well enough by then to have protected anyone effected by her driving, perhaps wrapping each person or car in a force field to keep them safe, thus keeping her integrity intact.

I think bad reviews come mostly from people who want to show other how good their science is. Fair enough, this film starts from the premise that humans only use 10% of their brains and Lucy can break this barrier and reach a whole new level in human evolution. This leitmotiv was quite smartly picked to raise interest,although scientifically inaccurate. However this film excites the mind of those who REALLY know physics and know how few limits there are in what we can achieve in pushing our evolution through science to become indistinguishable from magic. "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." I personally enjoyed every bit of the movie and, as it took me to a journey into the far far future, where humans can overcome their humanity and become real Gods.
Enjoy this film and let your mind explore the impossible.
