Sci-Fi Thriller. Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of eve... read more read more...rything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can...but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.(C) Warner

    Evelyn: Where are you going?
    Will: Everywhere.

    For a techno-thriller about artificial intelligence, it actually seems to make sense that Transcendence does not have a whole lot of emotion to back up its big ideas, aside from Paul Bettany's cry face, which makes its appearance... read more now and again. This is a film that could have worked as a cheesy B-movie with the words, "When computers fight back!" written on a billboard entrance to a drive-in movie theater. Instead, it feels like a glossy, big-budget studio film with a screenplay that feels like a cautionary tale that has been updated from an original draft written 20 years ago. Not helping is the high caliber cast providing mostly half-hearted performances and a lack of urgency in a dramatic narrative that sets its stakes much higher than they ever actually feel. Even when some of the neat ideas are given some visual lift, Transcendence is still mostly a dull affair.

    I was very interested in seeing this given that Im such a Nolan fan, and just the concept and the cast. The positives-it moves well and has an engaging premise, the first half of it i was with it all the way, however about 2/3 through the story did begin to falter, the full exten... read moret of the Depp computer's powers was unclear and characters made some kinda stupid decisions, also the whining by Rebecca Hall got to be annoying, and the ending wasn't the best, but it does have some very nice shots, and all the supporting actors do solid work, im def interested in seeing what wally pfister does next, for a first feature film on such a big scope it's still impressive
