The situation [Evelyn] finds herself in seems huge, but it boils down to a woman who can’t decide whether to take her husband off life support. The brain lives on, but what’s the quality of life? Transcendence isn’t about nanotechnology or robots or what horrors the future has in store for us. It’s about the next day, the next hour, the next five minutes… I’ve seen better fiction films this year, but nothing as unexpectedly heartbreaking as the best moments in Transcendence.
