Upgrade

Upgrade ★★★½

Sufficiently violent unpretentious B-Movie bloodbath that takes a second to unveil its clever central narrative conceit, but then transforms into a sort of modern Brian Trenchard-Smith riff; high-concept but lowdown and scuzzy. Will almost certainly end up being the better DEATH WISH redux of 2018, as I highly doubt Roth’s will remind me of Frank Henenlotter’s BRAIN DAMAGE this much.
