As she knows she is going to die, she discovers Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman) and create a supercomputer in form of flash drive which carries all information she possessed about universe through her ability of her brain functioning at 100% level.
The movie is action packed but changes plot into completely difference tangent or genre. From drug smuggle crime and captive the movie instantly draw parallel on theory of evolution and significance space & time.
The plot starts in very interesting way but will confuse you as story try to achieve and explain too many things which makes it complex to portray and looks like average movie. Scarlett Johansson is superb on ever frame, if you are interested in experimental action flick, go for it.
