Another directional debut (I think this is the third one I've written in a week or just over), this time from Wally Pfister. Prior to this, Pfister has always worked on the cinematography side of a movie (he has worked on Inception and The Dark Knight Trilogy, and anyone who has seen those, knows that the effects and cinematography play a big part in making those movies what they are).
Johnny Depp, one of my favourite actors, plays Will Caster. A leading scientist in the field of Artifical Intelligence. Between him and his 'life partner' Evelyn Caster (played by Rebecca Hall, known for The Prestige) they run one of the top AI companies in the country. When Will dies, his mind and being is uploaded to a main frame.
Transcendence was an awful movie in my opinion. I felt that whilst the idea was good, it just was not executed very well at all. The only thing I could say was that it got a bit better towards the end, but it was too late by then.
