Transcendence – movie review

21 Apr



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 everything ever known with the full range of human emotions.  His experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology group .On the day of one of his presentations the Anti-technology group creates a mass attack on every single person/ company working on this kind of research. With most of them dead and Will Caster poisoned by a radioactive bullet with only weeks to live, his wife and friend try to finish his experiment by uploading his collective intelligence in a machine in a process to revive the experiment and him. Wants happens next forms the rest of the story.

If not for Johnny Depp playing the lead character for this film would have been a B-grade sci fi movie, which would be running in AXN for the next couple of years in random. But even with Depp in this film it might only pull the crowd for a one time viewing . As the story line has nothing new, very dull and boring dialogues. Most of the cast act like robots with dead faces and expressions. With just a few good scenes with good CGI, this film just looks good in the trailer. I give it 3/10
