Upgrade is an above decent Sci Fi film that is basically a big budget Episode of Black Mirror. It's well paced and at times captures the vibe of the work of John Carpenter which is pretty cool coming from the latter day host of Recovery. The Kills are cool and of a Robocop-opening level of violence. The only real issues I had with the film were firstly it felt kinda like a greatest hits of other sci-fi film tropes and secondly the story kinda moved along too straight forwardly which never felt like the stakes rise at any point. I give this film 13 out of 19. oh and some of The cast went to the Sam Worthington school of Accents
