Corrected entry: When Lucy begins to travel through space and time during the climax, she's physically appearing in the difference places - both the native Americans and "Lucy" the ape react to her appropriately with shock. but when she appears in Paris, New York, etc. in crowded areas, nobody reacts to her at all, runs into her, etc. even though she's simply and seemingly magically appeared in the middle of bustling streets around dozens and dozens of people. (Especially strange in New York, when she's in the middle of a massive crowd.) Obviously done on purpose to make the scenes flow quicker, but an oddity nonetheless.TedStixon
Corrected entry: The gazelle that is chased and killed by a cheetah early in the movie is male (i.e. with antlers) when chased and killed but it is female seconds later when the cheetah carries it away. (00:07:45)
Trivia: During Lucy's final transformation sequence, her consciousness starts traveling through time by millions of years. At one point, Lucy pauses in time to observe and interact with an ape-like creature, reaching out to touch its fingertip. Although not expressly stated or explained in the film, this ape-like creature was what scientists today classify as Australopithecus afarensis, the earliest identifiable ancestor of humankind. The first fossils of Australopithecus afarensis were determined to be from a female who was christened "Lucy" by scientists.
