    Unfortunately just what I feared/expected. A basic idea with very interesting potential, but horribly executed in terms of plot(holes). Hollywood-superficial, and not at all exploring it's own world. Too bad... 9 years 9 months ago

    I love when my thoughts about our worlds near future is on the screen with such a precise detail.

    Loved the idea.

    It never really gets moving and plods along at the same pace throughout, which is its biggest downfall. You keep waiting for the tempo to pick up, but it never does. Scenes are bereft of actors to fill in the space, often having only one or two people standing in a room, trying to carry the film. That might be able to work under other circumstances, but this narrative can't support it.

    Transcendence has a few good ideas, and feels a lot like an old 90s sci-fi thriller--a bit ham-fisted but not terrible. If you can overlook the cheesy opening, the lack of actors, the dodgy pacing, and some iffy effects, there are some good things going on, but they can be difficult to notice when you're falling asleep in boredom.
