  •  Book My Show -Aubrey D'Souza Rating-3
Directed by Wally Pfister, Transcendence promises much and delivers very little. The movie takes us through the premise of artificial intelligence and its dangers. But the pace of the film and the material presented makes this movie incredibly dull. With a cast consisting of Johnny Depp,

  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasqhinha Rating-6
Will immortality in the future mean an infinite existence in cyberspace, where one's consciousness can outlive the human body? Soft-spoken genius Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) researcher, Dr Will Caster (Depp) certainly thinks so. The film is set in the not-too-distant future where there is a backlash

  •  Indian Express -Shalini Langer Rating-4
There are too many times these days at the movies when Johnny Depp seems transcendent — certainly unaffected by the normal. This film is apparently counting on it. However, so long gone is Depp down this road that being a digital superpower encased in a computer just doesn’t match the bar.
