Transcendence – Review

As Dr. Will Caster works toward his goal of creating an omniscient, sentient machine, a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent him from establishing a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain.


Transcendence means existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level. In this movie, Johhny Depp plays Dr Will Caster – a genius in Artificial Intelligence and combining human brain with it.
So the good doctor create an AI computer that is so advance and it could really makes lives more easier. Now ofcourse not everyone is into the idea and as that contradict with beliefs and religion.
The extremist decide to kill the doctor and with that – the loving genius wife decides to make Dr Caster into a digital format. Ofcourse her idea works and Dr Caster starts his new life as a computer. He quick adapt and makes the wife super rich and bought land out side town where he built’s a computer town with human cyborg who can’t die.


Even thou the movie had super actor’s such as Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy –  the movie just doesn’t deliver the message.
To be honest, we were confuse with the theme. Because in the beginning the story was going to the direction of loves never dies then it change direction of an AI take over of the world, then later it changes to a cyborg invasion and lastly to a love story that never changes even if your lover is now a computer. The movie left us fearing our smart phone at the end of the movie.

Plot: 4/10
Review: 2/10

The movie is available TGV and GSC.
