How can anyone say this is a great film?
1. Is this a horror movie about bats, or a preachy movie aboutpollution?
2. In the party scene, when the bats attack, Lucy and her close friendsare not attacked, but many others are.
3. The bats are known to kill or to transmit rabies, but Lucy and herfriends keep going to the bats without any protection (except a broom,sometimes).
4. Only one teacher's students are attacked. Are there any otherteachers at this school?
5. What did Lucy use to catch the bats? This was never explained. Itlooked like some kind of huge sticky web, but where did it come from?
6. In the big finale, Lucy outruns flying bats (and she isn't evenrunning fast), then manages to close a metal door without ANY of thebats getting through. She's not burned by the steam, either. I guessher broom protected her.
7. The editing in this film was atrocious, and the script wasn't verywell written. Too many unexplained events.
8. One plus: Lucy answers the phone and says, "This is she." That's thefirst time I've heard CORRECT grammar concerning the use of pronounsfollowing the verb "to be" in a LONG time. Usually, a character wouldsay, "This is her," or "That's me."
9. Admittedly, Lucy looks good, but the skimpy outfits mentioned byanother reviewer can be seen in only one scene, when the college girlleaves her window open and moves around on her bed in her underwear.Strangely, she isn't killed by the bats, but develops rabies. Shedidn't even realize that she had been bitten.
10. The final scene (three months later) made NO sense. Why was itincluded at all?
Sorry, but I wish I HAD missed most of this movie. I certainly can'tsee any reason to recommend it to anyone.
Final fotnote, added on 8/19/06: When Lucy fills a sample vial bydipping it into the polluted runoff from a waste pipe, she doesn't evenwear gloves. Is THAT the sign of an experienced scientist?
