Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Transcendence stars Johnny Depp as Dr. Will Caster, a brilliant researcher in the field of artificial intelligence who's shot by a band of anti-technology extremists and finds another life within an experimental supercomputer. As the scientist's mind expands into new frontiers, he starts to devise new ways to cure diseases and heal the environment ... but he also pursues his own less-altruistic agenda. This is pretty intense, brooding end-of-the-world material, which is too much for younger viewers. Expect explosions, gunfire, and other action sequences, as well as infrequent swearing (including "s--t"), a little kissing, and a few bar scenes with adults drinking.

Sexual Content

A few kisses between a husband and wife.

Violence

Several scenes feature soldiers attacking a compound, using machine guns and explosive devices that turn a large field of solar panels into debris. A character is assaulted by two men and then kidnapped. Another man is badly beaten, and his battered and bloody body is shown in detailed close-ups.

Language

Occasional use of the word "s--t."

Social Behavior

Absolute power corrupts, and we need to be careful about how we use technology. While a brilliant scientist/artificial consciousness thinks he's trying to improve the world, it soon becomes clear that he won't tolerate any interference.

Consumerism

One character uses several Apple products, including an iPhone and an iPad. She also drives a Subaru. Some city signage is visible, including an ad for Citibank. A fictional copy of Wired magazine features Depp's character on the cover.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A few scenes show adults drinking in bars or having wine with meals.
