What is it?
The 2018 science fiction body horror movie Upgrade.
What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:
After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall Green, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING, PROMETHEUS) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body.
The cure – an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM – gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.
What do I like about it and what might other people like about it?
I like the concept, the fact that they did very good with such a small budget (maybe 5 million dollars), the action, the twists, the technology, and Harrison Gilbertson’s performance as Eron Keen; and I think that other people might like this as well.
I liked this movie like I had expected, it started slower than I thought that it would and I did not feel that the main relationship was built up enough at the beginning, but the movie’s pace picked up and the movie was pretty good overall especially for a low-budget movie.
