Transcendence 2014 Movie Starring Johnny Depp: Initial Impression

Transcendence is a 2014 sci-fi technology film which stars with BIG names: Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, Cole Hauser, and Paul Bettany.

This SCI-FI box office movie disappoints Johnny Depp along with its past movies: The Lone Ranger and Dark Shadows.

In several reviews, some at Reddit, honestly gave its idea about the movie:
The concept will generate discussion but it just has a dull blockbuster vibe to it that makes me not so excited to see it.I am very worried they will overcome the conflict of the story with the power of love.
Which in turn the movie upside down, while it gives(as of today) a rating of 6.5 at IMDB and at worse 20% at RottenTomatoes. What could have it done wrong?

Transcendence opened on Good Friday with an opening-day gross of $4.8 million from 3,455 theaters and according to HollywoodReported, may have trouble crossing $13 million for the weekend after receiving scathing reviews and a dismal C+ CinemaScore.

It could be the possibility of uploading conscious off in the AI ? Nevertheless, I wanted to see it for real. Not a bunch of reviews about the plot or whatsoever. As long as I enjoy the scene, well, it does not matter at all.

Transcendence Plot Story

The story goes when a certain AI researcher(Johny Depp or Will) wanted to create TRANSCENDENCE that possesses collective intelligence(or Technology Singularity).

When anti-AI extremist terrorist attacks, Will is shot by an extremist which resulted in his death. With the LOVE his wife Evelyn, out of desperation, she uploads Will's consciousness  of the P.I.N.N. Project. This somehow survive Will in at least in digital form. But Will's bestfriend Max, says its not really Will's consciousness.

Will takes over technology, at some point,  when a certain Martin got beat up with near-death scenario. Will manage to repair his body with his nanotechnology.  END. I will not spoil the movie.

Anyhow, you can read its plot here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcendence_(2014_film).

Transcendence movie is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and set to release the movie on April 18, 2014(US) with its budget of $100 million.
