Who’S It For? Those who can watch a science-fiction movie without demanding concrete logic. At the very least, don’t expect this movie, executive produced by Christopher Nolan, to be like his own films.

Overall

The Internet is for real in Transcendence, a B-movie with grade-a production quality, loaded with terabyte-size open-ended questions, so long as one can accept it lastly with a scientific mindset. It is a film that perceives technology to be more expansive than a box of wires and computer chips, and actualizes the expanse of the internet as limitless to the realm of spiritual. »
