Transcendence

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.
