STOP! WARNING! Don't waste your money! In fact I want mine back!! This movie dishonored the man and the genius, and makes a mockery of his life and work! Even in Tesla's death they try to make him insignificant. You're better off reading all 35 million internet articles that come up about him when you search his name. Somehow Hollywood duped someone(s) into investing in the worst script and screenplay that could be cobbled together by reading a few Google or Bing or Wikipedia entries about the great Nikola Tesla. It was the most disorganized patchwork of random facts about Tesla, his genius, his inventions, his acquaintances, and his gullibility or naivety about the workings of investors and the ruthlessness of Edison. I couldn't make it past the 50 minute mark. I walked away from my computer and went to pull weeds in the garden. No character depth or development, no talent despite the actors enlisted, no story line. Just go watch one of the better made documentaries on the History channel, etc. Tesla deserves better than this. Fans of Nikola Tesla deserve better than this. Movie fans deserve better than this!

Starts off as a biographical film, loosely bound together with some facts. It quickly loses momentum and devolves into a hobbled together mess. Midway it becomes a completely different movie, focusing mostly on Anne Morgan & Sarah Bernhardt. The script falls apart, and morphs into a bizarre artistic representation of I don't know what. I see this as a common trend these days. Be honest with your audience, rename this movie "Sarah & Anne, a Sound Film".
