The central question of Transcendence appears to be, if humans had all the intelligence of a computer, would we still be massive jerks? The film’s answer appears to be a resounding yes.
In Transcendence, Johnny Depp plays a scientist who downloads his consciousness onto the internet as he is dying. However, he soon becomes unstoppable. There is also a technological guerrilla group bound and determined to stop him. Morgan Freeman makes bold pronouncements. Kate Mara has blonde hair. It’s a wild world.
Transcendence comes out April 18.
