Watched this as “research” for my upcoming “The horrors of 2018” video series.

Upgrade, aka Black Mirror: The Movie, From writer-director Leigh Whannell, co-creator of Saw, with his first, non-Insidious-feature.

Quite obvious man vs. machine theme going on here, but that does also provide us with a bunch of really cool looking, entertaining action set pieces. The main guy, who I mostly recognised from his leading role in The Invitation, was pretty amusing. Guy has a bunch of charisma. 

Perhaps not as clever as it thinks(?) it is, but definitely entertaining.
