Upgrade ★★★½

This was kind of ridiculous and I found myself rolling my eyes because of the writing at times, but overall, I had a lot of fun watching this. Fantastic action sequences, gorgeous lighting (ESPECIALLY in the ending scenes and the "Old Bones" sequence), and Logan Marshall-Green as well as resident Blumhouse Pictures queen, Betty Gabriel, give great performances. My biggest gripes with the film are how it relied on the tired "person with a disability becomes able bodied" and "woman dies to further the male protagonist's story" tropes (the former is especially frustrating and Lucy (@deathproof) perfectly sums up my frustrations with this in her review of the film.), but overall, this movie was a fun, yet kind of dumb, ride.
