Plot: Dr. Will Caster is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn and best friend Max Waters, both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

Transcendence provides us a future, in a story where science is a confusion of choices.hilosophically, it draws base from the eternal conflict between apparent progress and apparent conservatism, although it gets both of these philosophies wrong, but eventually manifests itself into a whole lot of issues that we read as news concerning our ever blurring demarcarions between digital and real.
Will ( actor Johnny Depp) is a genius with an obsession for sentient science, which happens through a alleged dangerous mixture of biology and software computing. His love interest and partners in crime are Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman among other recognisable Hollywood faces. This film is produced Christophe Nolan. But when you hear lines like "...the end of the organic primitive world", it is very easy to be inclined to think of this film as a coded advertisement for particularly evil seed manufacturing companies ( a name that rhymes with santo, you figure..)
I could be dead wrong about the entire thing.. but I suggest you go watch this film for yourself and make a decision.
