Lucy, Luc Besson, 2014 is not only recommended viewing for fans of the writer-director's other films, but for aficionados of the filmic arts who enjoy the occasional unique as well.
Monsieur Besson took La Femme Nikita's initially reluctant female singularity Übermench, added a sufficient amount of humor from his The Fifth Element, included an obligatory crazy-foil and legions of speedbumps dressed in black (Léon, The Professional) and then went one step further: he added a message. The result is a successful think/action movie. I do not know of another example of this type of film, which makes it worth seeing if only because it's one-of-a-kind.
Abstract, philosophical (para-philosopical to be more accurate) films like Koyaanisqatsi
or even The Tree of Life are solid documentaries or dramas (or a combination of both) and all are locked to their Serious Messages.
Template-driven action films are, by design, the opposite of unique.
Lucy. Well...Lucy is both of the above.
