It's like Venom, but upgraded. This is Leigh Whannell second movie he directed and it's pretty solid. Cheesy and poorly written, but enjoyable with some cool practical deaths. Logan Marshall-Green, in-spite of his uncanny replica to Tom Hardy, was pretty good, especially with his reaction to tense situations made it even more entertaining.

Didn't even hear of this until minutes before I saw it, and was probably the best surprise all year! In the top percentile of AI/"robot" movies, with some of the standard eye-rolls of Sci-Fi Action but high quality writing and suspense... a few parts may be predictable to the astute but it never felt dumbed down, nor convoluted... gripping and perfect twists. Modern Matrix-like action and feels like a whole franchise/universe could be based off this character (or characters). More precisely I'd say 3.8/4

I saw the trailer from “Upgrade” by chance at the beginning of this year. Believe me, I was ecstatic and enthusiastic. “I HAVE to see this movie“, I thought. There are trailers that look inviting and afterward, the film looks very disappointing. But “Upgrade” certainly doesn’t belong in this category. On the contrary. This is one of the best films of the year for me. An excellent SF provided with a wonderful concept and which gradually switches to a tough revenge film. For me, it was an exciting mix of “Robocop“, “John Wick” and “Demon Seed“. “Robocop” because …
