A breath of ambition disappointingly lost in a gasp of absurdity, TRANSCENDENCE is a bookended failure. Through its many faults, on its most basic terms, lies the underlying fault of an unpolished script meeting the overarching fault of choppy editing. The film promises much in a larger world, but ultimately feels isolated, small, and insignificant. The importance of its thought-provoking science and humanity held potential for a global threat, but only paves the way for an overblown finale - feeding on the fiction of its genre with an appetite of devouring the interest in its science.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

12 days ago via Movies on Android phone

The most humane, emotionally enveloping film of the year stars a CGI creature at its core. DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is so well thought out, and so well put together, that it feels natural, exciting, and real.

For a film that begins with such promise and intrigue, NON STOP descends in its final act with a lacklustre conclusion and motive.



28 days ago via Flixster

A remake with the purpose of capitalising on a twist ending, OLDBOY fails in this and many other facets that hold its original in esteem. Comparisons aside, OLDBOY 2013 is poorly made cinema - a distant character, a story with little exposition and thin motives, rushed scenes, and an ambivalence towards its conclusion. The highlight of the film remains the leads time in captivity, but everything before and after remains a blur.
