Sci-fi thriller directed by Wally Pfister and starring Johnny Depp. Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is one of the leading scientists in the world due to his pioneering work in creating sentient artificial intelligence. However, with fame and success comes the attention of a technophobic extremist group seeking to put an end to his work before he creates something beyond human control. When Caster is shot by a member of the group and falls victim to radiation poisoning, there is no hope for his survival. With the help of his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and friend Max (Paul Bettany) he decides to continue his latest project by linking his mind with that of the computer and creating technology more intelligent than the collective capability of the entire human race. While his earthly body dies, Caster's mind is fully embedded within the computer and he soon begins to exercise the potential of his newly-gained power. But with this power comes great destruction which threatens the future of mankind...

I stared at the film for nearly its two-hour runtime and I’m pretty sure there was something magical contained in there somewhere. I just wasn’t sure of what I’d seen.
For a start (in case you didn’t know) Transcendence wasn’t a commercial success. Despite it’s a-list cast (think Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman), it wasn’t that well-received. One reason – that anyone thinking of watching it should know – is that Johnny Depp’s face was used heavily in the film’s marketing. Therefore, his legions of fans naturally assumed that this was a ‘Johnny Depp film.’ It isn’t. Not really. I don’t think it’s too much of a spoiler to mention that he dies about twenty minutes into the film. That’s integral to the plot. For he plays a computer genius who is experimenting with artificial intelligence and, after his death, has his consciousness transferred into a machine. And, as the saying goes… with disastrous consequences.
So, what little we see (and hear) of Depp is largely his face on a computer screen throughout most of the film. And that didn’t go down too well with those people who had gone to see the film just because he was in it.
Without wishing to give too much away about the story, I thought it was quite an original idea overall. It was just executed in a bit of an odd way. You’re never really sure what sort of film you’re watching.Read more ›
The film begins with the aftermath of it's ending. Which is pretty eye catching, and very evocative. There's voice over narration from Max Waters [Paul Bettany] a man who knows better than anyone how all this came to be.
Then we flash back to find out.
Dr. Will Caster [Johnny Depp] is a leader in the field of artificial intelligence. His aim to create a machine that has all human knowledge, and human emotions with it. A group of fanatics who aren't too keen on that notion attempt to kill him.
But as he dies, his wife [Rebecca Hall] hits on the idea of uploading his mind into a computer.
Will Caster 2.0 results. A machine with human memories. And one that can control an awful lot of technology. Which could be a problem for the entire human race...
Transcendence attempts to look at some very big ideas. What it is to be human. Could a machine ever be sentient. The rate at which technology is advancing, and what happens to humanity as a result. Things like that.
It is very well directed. It does contain some very good cinematography and some very powerful imagery.
But it doesn't really work.
Because, ironically for a movie all about what it is to be human, it doesn't really have any soul. The human characters are cyphers who exist to service the needs of the story. Johnny Depp underacts [three words you might never have expected to hear in a sentence ever again] rather drastically in the lead. Well, either that or he's bored.Read more ›
