"Transcendence" Review: Craig's First Take

4

So there is a surprisingly strong sci-fi film that no one seems to like coming to theaters this weekend called “Transcendence”. It's been beaten to a bloody pulp on Rotten Tomatoes, called a big idea movie that’s also narratively inert. Say it ain’t so. Aren’t big ideas why we go to the movies in the first place? Or is it just to watch animated squirrels in 3-D?

Well I stand firm on cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, "Transcendence" is uniquely adult and also filled with something you don’t see much of in movies today-something to think about.

The movie "Transcendence" is one of the more anticipated science fiction movies of the year. It brings the theme of transhumanism to the forefront of society in a way that few other movies currently do. "Transcendence" is an exploration of what could happen when a human being interfaces with the vastness of the Internet and becomes something much more than human.

Near-death experiences have long been the subject of countless stories, theories, speculation, and in some cases, movies. However, even after centuries of tales of near death perception of the afterlife and subsequent analysis and conjecture, there is something about the story behind the book and the movie, "Heaven Is for Real," that has captured the imagination of both filmmakers and the public.
