I finally got round to seeing this film in the cinema and with the amazing trailers and mediocre reviews, I wasn't sure what this film was going to be like. Transcendence revolves around a scientist trying to make a self-aware AI and because of an anti-technology group the scientist ends up becoming the self-aware AI.

There are a few positives in this film which include: good story, great acting and stunning visual effects. To expand on these points, the story in the film was really interesting and intriguing also it resolved well. I was stunned by the beauty of this film and I loved every frame but I really should have expected it anyway as it was directed by Christopher Nolan's Cinematographer.

There are also a couple negatives which are that about 2/3 of the way through the film it slows down, there really isn't that much story progression but I was still intrigued and wasn't bored throughout the any of the film. There are also moments that there is a suspension of disbelief, I'll go into detail about one of them that isn't crucial to the story; when they upload Will's mind on to the computer they only have a couple cores but the AI PINN had loads of cores to be able to run it, however that is only a small negative and apart from that there are no other negatives.

Overall I really enjoyed this film and apart from being a little slow toward the end it was a really solid film, so I rate it:
