Transcendence (2014)


Wally Pfister directs Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany in this sci-fi movie about a dying computer genius who uploads his personality into an evolving super computer. 

A beautiful and occasionally haunting movie scuppered by an uncertain tone (you get the feeling someone really wanted the cold Kubrickian drama to be an action movie) and lifeless performances. Not as bad as its toxic reputation suggests, but still wasteful of some expertly conceived imagery and some potentially cinematic ideas.
