I saw Transcendence on Friday at the Fox Bay Cinema. It is the story of artificial intelligence researcher, Dr Will Caster. He is working on building a sentient computer, capable of experiencing human emotions, when he is attacked by radical anti-technology extremists. As he slowly dies, his friend Max Waters and his wife Evelyn struggle to transfer his consciousness into a computer.
This is an interesting story, but a little preachy at times. It also had plot-holes you could drive a truck through. Additionally, I found the choice to expose the ending within the first five minutes to be an interesting one. I could have done without that. Between that and the knowledge you get from the trailer, there is little you do not know by the 10 minute point. Despite its issues, I thought it was a very enjoyable film. It was not perfect but I would recommend it.
