Upgrade ★★★½

This is a high-concept sci-fi idea in the service of several hyper-kinetic action sequences. It's John Wick with a cyborg twist. It's as if Luc Besson tackled an episode of "Black Mirror." It's ridiculous, and it's an unapologetically entertaining 96-minute thrill ride. The bio-tech gimmicks are given more layers than any of the characters, but Logan Marshall-Green does an entirely adequate job as a store-brand version of Tom Hardy. Recommended if you liked Lucy, Gamer, or Hardcore Henry.
