A scientist's subconscious (Johnny Depp) is converted into an artificial intelligence following his death. This artificial intelligence creates a new regeneration centre but is this a force for good or evil and is the artificial intelligence really the deceased scientist or a villainous impostor?
'Transcendence' is an intriguing futuristic science fiction piece. It is very slickly constructed with some fine special effects and despite holes in the plot that you could drive a horse and cart through - or something more technological savvy - and some vaguely religious undertones this is an above average example of the technology versus environment genre.
