Movie Review: Transcendence (2014)
Touching sensitively on our understanding of self-worth, the film manages to provide solid entertainment, if with merely adequate performances from its stars. The cast delivers exactly as needed, and with a story that captures our attention the way this one does, very little stands to disappoint.
The execution of the screenplay falls victim to its own cutting of a few too many corners, and some minor pacing issues do it no favors. However, neither of these concerns do much to chip away at the essence of the film or what it represents to its audience.
The work is to be liberally credited for keeping us neck-deep in examining what makes us consider ourselves distinctly human—and with what we ultimately want out of life.
