I had expected worse. I think there are some films where the tag line needs to be:
Better than the trailer suggests
I think the best film I saw which was let down by a terrible trailer was the Road To Perdition.
Transcendence wasn’t the worst film I saw this weekend. It was a well made and glossy film and there was lots of stuff. The overall plot line was pretty good for the first half of the film and then it went bad. At lots of points I found myself thinking “what?”, “how” and “why?”. I just didn’t get it. I could write the plot flaws below, but I don’t often do spoilers. It would be best for you if you just watched The Lawnmower Man from the early 1990s.
I gave this a 4 on IMDB. See this communication for my rating system.
