That... turned out to be not the case.
Transcendence is a movie that tackles the issue of technology and our dependence to it, as well as the two sides of it: the benefits and the dangers. Yet we get the feeling that the film could have gotten a lot further in its message, had it tried a bit harder. The message never leaves the "topical" sense and many clichéd scenes as well as plot holes point out to more problematic issues. It's still about "goods vs. evils" of technology, being the 21st Century's new Witch hunt.
To be fair, though, the actors do try their best to grant a good performance, starting with Rebecca Hall, the heart and soul of the movie. As it progresses, her character gets swallowed in this idea of hers, and no matter how far fetched some ideas are, Ms. Hall delivers a heartfelt performance of a scientist broken of her love, doing everything she can to maintain him "alive". Mr. Depp provides a slightly colder interpretation of his character, and given the story, it's not too off and has its charms.
Don't look for meaningful special features because there aren't. Lots of trailers with less than 15 minutes to spare of interviews, EPK material and such. Don't even waste your time on it, it's on auto-repeat mode.
Transcendence could have been, should have been a much better movie. With its core story and characters, there was much possibilities for debates, philosophical ideas and ways to experiment with these ideas, but alas, we get but a fraction of it and by half the movie's mark, most people will have guessed how it ends and how it gets there.
Will's wife and colleague Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) has the idea of sticking an electrode in Will's brain and uploading him to the computer. Will connects to the Internet and unlocks secrets of nanotechnology. He wants to use the knowledge to cure the sick, clean the air, clean the water, regrow forests, and create an army of followers with brain implants. He would become a "God" which scares a whole bunch of people.
The special effects were decent, but not overwhelming. Johnny Depp was lifeless in his role, as are too many science fiction characters. The film asks several questions to ponder, such as how will we know when a computer has consciousness? What are the limits we will allow robots to control our lives?
The film utilizes nanotechnology, perhaps beyond its limits. There is a new generation of devices coming out using new substances such as graphene which will make everything we own obsolete. BTW, Government facilities such as depicted in the film utilizes iris scans in Top Secret areas and not simple card swipes.
This is a slow paced cerebral science fiction film that is not for everyone.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs that I recall. No nudity. Brief covered sex scene.
I just wanted to clarify for those purchasing this item on Amazon. This title includes, a Blu-ray disc of the movie and an Ultraviolet Digital Copy, but ALSO includes a DVD disc of the movie. This detail is not otherwise indicated on the item page.
This pertains to the version with the UPC 8-83929-41597-7
