Dr. Will Caster 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 and best friend Max Waters, 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.

- Johnny Depp is a superstar in the field of artificial intelligence — you can tell by the glasses he wears — in this big idea thriller where the forces of technology and humanity collide. Even with the snazzy visual effects, it’s a messy, talky endeavor. With Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman and Kate Mara.
