Despite having enjoyed Transcendence it should be pointed out that in terms of plot, it seems that first time writer/actor Jack Paglen put in everything he could think of including the kitchen sink. Depending on what sort of filmfan you are, this could be a bad thing. However, it should also be pointed out that the underlying theme of the film was man allowing his hubris to make him feel like God. Of course that was not the only underlying theme. Other themes included love and sacrifice, man’s inherent distrust of anything new, the dangers of messing with real artificial intelligence (AI), and why man should not attempt to change the “real” God’s model designed in His own image.
