  1. Aulia Indry's rating of the film Transcendence

    Love can do anything but this film is beyond the capabilities of humans in the present era

  2. lostlevel's rating of the film Transcendence

    Not that bad but there isn't much in terms of fresh ideas so it ends up feeling a bit paint by numbers.

  3. Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Transcendence

    Shyamalanically awful. Squanders its premise, cast and piles of money by delivering a plodding, dead-on-arrival mess with all the production values of an episode of CSI - that score, ugh. Not even bad enough to be a future cult classic. File (in a deep, dark dungeon) alongside 'The Lawnmower Man', 'S1M0NE' and 'Chappie'.

  4. McOpinionated's rating of the film Transcendence

    Oh dear. The weak Rebecca Hall character could have been a fantastic high priestess, in a controlling or controlled relationship with Johnny Depp's. Time-scales for AI & tech evolution so compressed they are a plot embarrassment: too near-future mixed with far-future to cohere. Cod-dualism re "the soul". Surprisingly wooden for a high-tech romp. Made me yearn for Iain M Banks (Hydrogen Sonata & its "Subliming" etc)

  5. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Transcendence

    Wow... Bit late, really wanted to watch this in the cinema, just watched on Netflix... sci fi done badly. Plot and script are awful, felt nothing from anyone in whole film. Big disappointment, could have been so much better with material and concept.

  6. Cee's rating of the film Transcendence

    Can you prove you're self aware?

  7. chanandre's rating of the film Transcendence

    First they were Shells, now they're Ghosts. Ghosts in the Cloud. Surpasses Ex Machina, Transcends it. Not fiction, a reality now: Siri has body. Depp: Dies>ascends as Siri>descends as Human>dies on the Cloud>descends as Water. Nolan ending: having'em together as digital water </3. Oshii (via Cameron) meeting Malick (via Nolan). Evokes: Bionic:Placebo./Digital Fauna+Digital Flora:Zomby/Love & Communication:Cat Power∇

  8. Panda's rating of the film Transcendence

  9. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Transcendence

    Watchable nonsense. An other unplaceable Johnny Depp accent.

  10. kopfkompass's rating of the film Transcendence

    Despite all the kitsch an highly underrated technology dystopia masterpiece.

  11. Mr. Smifff's rating of the film Transcendence

    Bad Christopher Nolan! Bad! You don't give a first time director a blockbuster budget for a movie! He better at least have some directing experience, or training in some form or another. The movie looks good. I'll give it that much, but this shows why it's so hard to go from cinematography straight to directing. It's so awkward! The pacing and tone are horrible! I can practically see Pfister crying behind the camera.

  12. Trunfos's rating of the film Transcendence

  13. gigicogo's rating of the film Transcendence

    Parte bene, ma si incasina e il finale è scontato. Depp lento, direi quasi noioso.

  14. Daniel Iván's rating of the film Transcendence

    What could have become a truly deep exploration of the digital self turned out into some sort of sad metaphor of silly corporate greed. Not even a good one...

  15. abc's rating of the film Transcendence

    interesting ideas, but didn't quite make it for me - hollywoodified unfortunately, became obvious and simplified in the end which is disappointing - give it a 2.5

  16. Dalibor's rating of the film Transcendence

    I don't think this qualifies as a legit movie, but rather someone's admiration with modern technology gone berserk. It's hard to imagine a meaningful plot concerning ethics of AI that ends with Rambo looking hackers fighting hybrid zombies, even if SF thriller is your sort of thing.

  17. Linn's rating of the film Transcendence

    Quite a bad film, especially given the big names in front of and behind the camera. I didn't get rid of the feeling that this could have been a much better film, i.e., it has super interesting ideas and moments that just never play out at all. Instead, there is just a heap of unmotivated story jumps, logical flaws, pale characters and mindless "action" scenes. Let's go and re-watch "Twelve Monkeys" instead.

  18. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Transcendence

    What's wrong with me? I quite like it... The first 30 minutes are particularly beautiful to look at, the cinematography is first class. And generally ... a rather brave attempt from Hollywood to produce something relevant...

  19. Serhiy Baryshniev's rating of the film Transcendence

    Ask yourself this: why would a superintelligence cared for some (quite dumb) woman?

  20. LUCKYINTAN's rating of the film Transcendence

    unfortunately, im not a programmer

  21. Jason Av's rating of the film Transcendence

  22. supertinycat's rating of the film Transcendence

    depp without the costume is always a tragedy.

  23. Rininta Irientantya's rating of the film Transcendence

    at first it goes "uh huh" and then it goes "meh"

  24. mjgildea's rating of the film Transcendence

    2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Transcendence isn't as bland as I was lead to believe its just as disappointing. While the usually played-out Depp isn't as unbearable as I expected the false hope its kind of seemingly promising plot offers abruptly turns to pure shit during the last act. Having the story told in a flashback completely robbed its audience of any enjoyment but overall it felt like a cannibalized Nolan project.
