Upgrade ★★★½

SXSW Film #7

I’m a fan of Leigh Wahnell and am always interested in whatever he does. So I was looking forward to checking this one out. It did not disappoint. The first 15-20 minutes is the worst part of the film. However, after a bumpy initial set up you’re thrown into a high action, gory good time that involves such well choreographed and well shot fight scenes. Some moments of this film gave me Black Mirror-esk vibes in terms of the sci-fi tech elements and its originality. I would highly suggest checking this one out when it comes out in theaters this summer.
