Upgrade ★★★★½

I had heard a lot of positive things about this movie during its initial run so I was excited to see it. When I first turned it on and saw the ridiculous future cars and drones I let out an audible groan. What I discovered was that the film has the low-budget, high concept vibe that was so prevalent during the 80's and films like TRANCERS came to mind. After that I was hooked and went along for the ride.
The team behind this used their low-budget to give us something truly creative. They focused on creative storytelling and inventive camera shots and in the process beat the similarly themed VENOM at its own game.
High recommend.
