A superb throwback sci-fi action-thriller

Ostensibly emerging out of nowhere, 2018's Upgrade is one of the biggest film-going surprises of the year; an old-school, dark, noir-ish sci-fi action-thriller reminiscent of The Terminator and RoboCop. Upgrade was written and directed by Australian filmmaker Leigh Whannell, who knows a thing or two about genre pieces after scripting both Saw and Insidious, among other titles. Flying solo without ... read more

I've had a soft spot for Leigh Whannel since he broke onto the scene as the writer of the first three Saw films then went on to get creative with other fare as Dead Silence, Cooties, and, most notably, the damned great Insidious series. 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

I enjoyed this film. However, with that said, the film ends with a very pessimistic message, or from another perspective, one serious warning to all human beings. As a side note, after having watched this film, I began wondering if it might be that for current human mind it is easier to imagine pessimistic futures rather than optimistic ones. Both futures, pessimistic and optimistic, either of the... 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. Up to that point, however, it's a lot of fun; the action is well-staged, the"

"A brutal mugging leaves Grey Trace paralyzed in the hospital and his beloved wife dead. A billionaire inventor soon offers Trace a cure - an artificial intelligence implant called STEM that will enhance his body. Now able to walk, Grey finds that he also has superhuman strength and agility - skills he uses to seek revenge against the thugs who destroyed his life. An incredible Australian movie all done on a budget of 5 million dollars. This movie is basically "Robocop" meets "Death Wish", with "

" Note: This movie felt like a nice throwback to 80s Cyborg/Robot movies like the original Robocop and Cyborg (The Jean-Claude Van Damme movie). I was surprised at how much I enjoy this movie because I didn't think it would be good at all. The action is top notch and the movie has a lot of blood and gore similar to the old days of 80's-90s sci-fi action movies. I also like the story and how cleaver it was at times. The special effects are amazing too for a very low budget movie. "
