The first thing we noticed about this film is the cast. The impressive all-star cast includes Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Cillian Murphy. Transcendence broaches a classic subject on the Silver Screen, Artificial Intelligence. Where should we draw the line? Will we reach a point where computers can think – or even worse, feel – for themselves? If so, is this morally acceptable? Dr. Will Caster, played by Johnny Depp, tries to find out. His goal is to create a machine that transcends human intelligence. A radical anti-technology organization decides they must prevent him from doing so. Will Caster’s obsession evolves throughout the film, though, to the point where it becomes dangerous. This is the directorial debut for Wally Pfister, the Oscar-winning Cinematographer. Pfister is best known for being the cinematographer behind The Dark Night Trilogy and Inception.
