The commericals made Upgrade look like merely a sci-fi action/revenge flick, which it kind of is, but there was more to it than I expected. I’m glad I saw this.
The film contains tight directing, acting, and music as well as some creative kills. I was very impressed with some of the futuristic decor in this.
The plot is fluid and competently handled. Though some parts are predictable, the movie really did play against expectations in one part I won’t give away, and overall the film does a good job of surprising.
The film does get darker than I expected, but I understand where the filmmakers were going and credit them for taking risks.
