Haven't seen it myself, but here's a fairly extensive review:

>From another site (
"The sci-fi element of the story is not large, and only really comes into towards the finale. All in all, a mind-bending bit of suspense from Amenabar".

So it's probably a fun movie (good reviews all around), but not especially relevant in a transhumanist sense.

Saw a movie lately (forgot the name) about an AI, composed of various serial killers and other nasties, that "accidentally" got a nanotech (blue slime) body and killed a bunch of people (both in the real world and in VR). Sounds all very transhuman, but boy, did it suck ass!
