Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp), the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, is shot during a public presentation. Almost simultaneously several research labs are blown up by a group of protesters called RIFT (Revolutionary Independence From Technology), led by the ruthless and intelligent Bree (Kate Mara).

Little do the protesters realize that their actions inadvertently become the catalyst for Will to be a participant in his own transcendence. His wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, upload Will’s brain to a computer, keeping his conscious alive while his body dies.

No longer limited only to his mortal frame, Will now inhabits the realm of the Internet.

  • 4 stars "It had a few flaws but overall was a thrilling movie."
  • 5 stars "A remarkable achievement; Depp hasn't been this good since The Tourist."
  • 1 star "I was waiting this movie for a while. I like Johnny depp and read quite alot on transcendence, but saddly yhis is an Hollywood representation of the transcendence concept. I would have liked a more realistic aspect of it. This movie completely failed me."
