Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed-to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can...but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will's thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him. Written by
Continuing his outspoken advocacy for the use of film stock over digital formats, Cinematographer Wally Pfister not only chose to shoot the film in the anamorphic format on 35mm film instead of on a digital camera, but also finished the film photochemically, refusing to use a digital intermediate.

They say there's power in Boston. Some phone service in Denver. But things are far from what they were. Maybe it was all invevitable. An unavoidable collision between mankind and technology. The Internet was meant to make the world a smaller place. But it actually feels smaller without it. I knew Will and Evelyn Caster better than anyone. I knew their brillance. Their dedication to what they believed in. And to what they loved.

The Line Between Humanity & Evolving into something More.
This film will most likely split down the middle because of it's
religious tones of God and evolution. Some people will love it and some
will hate it because it might go against their belief system.
For movie purposes, it has great acting, great story (though some may
feel it's a little too far fetched, which I personally don't think is
too far fetched when you see what the world was like 10 years ago
before the mainstream web), and pretty good action scenes.
At the heart, it's a story about a woman, Evelyn, who loves her
husband, Will, so much she tries to hold onto him by helping him save
his consciousness. She begins to wrestle with whether this being is
really Will or is something new. It's also about evolution and the line
between humanity and evolving into something more. This movie might be
a turn off for religious people but it does make you think of what
humanity could become whether you're religious or not.
Overall, it's a great movie that's enjoyable, thought provoking,
challenges some beliefs, and foreshadows some future realities we will
all have to soon deal with.
I would say go see it!
