THIS MOVIE WAS GREAT! I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT BUT IT WAS REALLY GOOD. THE STORYLINE WAS GOOD AND THERE WAS ACTION AND INTELLIGENCE.
Was not expecting much, but this movie was surprisingly good,!
Whannell commits to making a science fiction film plugged into the moment in which we’re living, and making grim projections of what might be around the corner.
The action sequences are electric; they’re grimy, choppy, and strange. But when the characters talk, the film stretches and slows to a banal cautionary tale, almost as if Whannell was making the movie as a homework assignment, having a ton of fun with the aesthetics and the fight scenes, then suddenly remembering he was supposed to incorporate some “themes.”
Infusing its familiar dystopian sci-fi tropes with stylishly gonzo, low-budget filmmaking and inventive narrative flourishes, Upgrade proves far more entertaining than it has a right to be.

Movie Info & Cast
In the near future, hearing voices inside your head might actually save your life. Or at least that’s the case for Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green), a man paralyzed in the same mugging that left his wife dead. Despite being a technophobe, Grey agrees to an experimental new implant called STEM – a computer chip that offers a cure to his paralysis, and a chance for him to avenge his wife’s death. But STEM isn’t just a passive plug in. It’s got a voice and mind of its own, and may prove to be the best companion Grey could ask for.
