Movie Review: Transcendence (2014)

“Transcendence” is the kind of movie that thinks it’s really smart, when in fact it’s actually quite dumb. To be fair, the film has impeccable production values, and that’s no surprise given that first time director Wally Pfister has collaborated with Christopher Nolan on numerous occasions, and even took home an Oscar for best cinematography for his work on “Inception.” This feels very Nolan-esque in that it tackles big ideas, has similar music, a similar cast, and everything is filmed on a grand scale. The problem is that many of the film’s ideas are very half-baked and come off as silly. For a movie that takes itself so seriously, it doesn’t have the logic to back it up. Oh, and Johnny Depp is pretty bad in it, too.

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is passionate about creating an omniscient AI that can help solve many of humanity’s problems, but his enthusiasm isn’t shared by everyone. When a radical anti-technology organization poisons Dr. Caster, leaving him with a few weeks to live, he and his longtime partner and wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall), along with the help of Max Waters (Paul Bettany), successfully transfer his consciousness into a high-powered computer, giving him the ability to live on long after his physical body has perished. As Will becomes more powerful, his reach becomes limitless, which begins to pose a big threat to the rest of the world.
