Transcendence


Johnny Depp and science fiction are two of my favorite things, which is why I was so looking forward to this film since the beginning of the year.  Alas, despite a great cast including Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, and Kate Mara, a big budget, and a premise that feeds on our growing concerns about where technology is taking us, this one really disappoints.  While there are some interesting ideas present, the fact is it's boring.  I expect that poor word of mouth will make this one a box office disaster.  And that's a shame.  Johnny, Johnny, Johnny.

Grade: C

Who is this movie for?  Sci-fi nuts with low standards.
