A film about a woman who is gaining access to more and more of her brain after a freak drug smuggling incident. 
Generally, it wasn't that bad. But it wasn't good either. The opening dialogue was pretty terrible. It was up and down from there. 

Sadly, Besson is just repeating elements from previous films - Scarlett Johanson is la Femme Nikita, the drug lord is Gary Oldman's bad cop from Leon, there's Mozart's Requiem instead of Beethoven's 9th, the good cop is not totally dissimilar to Jean Reno and, of course, there are car chases and shooting.

All these elements are but pale shadows of the originals. I can highly recommend to watch the latter instead especially if you have not seen them. This includes pretty much most of his works up to 2000. Derivation starts beyond that year.
