Added DiffLines:

* CrooksAreBetterArmed: The final battle of the film involves the Paris police (armed only with pistols) trying to stop a rampaging Triad kill-team armed with assault rifles, sub-machine guns, a rocket launcher, suicidal fanaticism and a complete disregard for collateral damage. Even if by the end the only bad guy still standing was Mr. Jang, the cops still technically lost ''big time''.


Added DiffLines:

* StupidEvil: Mr. Jang and his gang. Starting with producing a cutting-edge drug that could revolutionize medical technology and only being able to think of using it as super-crack, and then following up with going on KillThemAll-happy rampages through two different continents [[CrooksAreBetterArmed with enough firepower to look like a literal act of war]]. Even if he wasn't having the bad luck of pissing off a PhysicalGod, how long would Jang's gang would actually be able to keep functioning, with his attempt to piss off ''governments''?

* DualWielding: Lucy uses two silenced handguns at one point, shooting mooks through closed doorways with accuracy. In a non-weapon example she uses two laptops at once, typing at lightning speed. Both examples are justified given her abilities.

** The BigBad does it with two submachine guns in the finale.



* FailedASpotCheck: When the cops roll in for the final showdown, they completely fail to notice the small army of Asian gangsters arming themselves with enough firepower to take over the district ''in broad daylight only a couple steps away from them''.

Added DiffLines:

* NoKillLikeOverkill: The Koreans actually bring a rocket launcher to assault... a Parisian university. The defending police forces are woefully outgunned as it is, but that thing is the final nail in their coffin.


Added DiffLines:

* RedShirtArmy: The Parisian police doesn't fare too well against the much heavier armed Korean mobsters. When the dust has settled, [[spoiler:Del Rio seems to be the SoleSurvivor out of at least a dozen cops]].

* AffablyEvil: The EvilBrit who delivers the drug smugglers' sales pitch to the unwilling mules is almost excessively polite to everyone, even while he's threatening to have their families murdered if they screw up.

* MindScrew: Given how the director [[XMeetsY described the movie as]] "one part ''[[Film/TheProfessional Leon]]'', one part ''Film/{{Inception}}'' and one part ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''", you know he will aim for something to make audiences scratch their heads. [[spoiler:The GoingCosmic ending in particular shows the ''2001'' influence in "WTF".]]

** Any hormone produced during pregnancy is going to circulate through the ''mother's'' body, not just the fetus's, so if [=CPH4=] really existed, pregnant women would get a boost in cerebral function just from being pregnant.

* NoHuggingNoKissing: There's very little romance in the movie, and even when it is brought up it doesn't last long. The only times it's mentioned is Lucy's' BastardBoyfriend Richard who she's only been seeing for a week [[spoiler: and dies in the opening scene of the movie]] and Lucy giving Del Rio a kiss and telling him he's the MoralityPet.

The only times it's mentioned is Lucy's' BastardBoyfriend Richard who she's only been seeing for a week [[spoiler: and dies in the opening scene of the movie]] and Lucy giving Del Rio a kiss and telling him he's the MoralityPet. And even then, her lack of affect pretty much eliminates any kind of romantic angle - it's almost as if she's seeing if she ''can'' feel emotion.
