Transcendence, the movie: a transapient comes to hollywood

Do they end up destroying it in the end? Does it suddenly remember its 'humanity' and commit suicide? Take off into space or another dimension and we don't see it again? Something else?

Definitely something to see this spring.


The latter scenario would be the most satisfying of the three. More satisfying still would be the portrayal of the transapient as something with a better moral compass than the humans who want to destroy it.

From the trailer, it seems to be an act of human violence that inadvertently accelerates the uploading experiment. I hope the movie does not discard and forget this delectable irony halfway through.
