However, the trailer for Upgrade left me somewhere between interested and rolling my eyes. Coupled with his decent but comparatively lackluster first outing as a d... read more

" DVD- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing A shaggy techno-thriller, Upgrade is a surprisingly sturdy film that excels thanks to some rather inventive filmmaking and black humor. The biggest mark against the film is it's story; it's solidly constructed and plotted, with some great bits of body comedy, but it gets too cliched in the last act, falling back on twists that have been telegraphed from the beginning, that are uninspired.
