‘Transcendence’ (2014) | The (a few more than) One Line Synopsis

Ambitious directing début for Pfister, ‘Transcendence’ combines excellent acting from pretty much everyone involved, with a slightly hokey, clunky script and story, which aims for the stars (or the internet filled rain-clouds) and who cares if it falls slightly short of them when the intentions are so honourable? Tense, properly chilling in places, B-movie fare, with a touch of Wyndham’s ‘The Chrysalids’ (always a winner for me).

Far better than people will have told you, just don’t expect an excess of car-chases and explosions.
