Upgrade ★★★½

There was actually a good amount of people watching this on a morning showing, so I hope that good word of mouth is actually getting people to see this because it's actually pretty good. God knows I wouldn't have seen this otherwise - I barely even saw a trailer for this, and I had no idea about this movie until a few days ago. And although it's not perfect (first act, a few plot elements and supporting characters) the action is so well executed and the lead actor (Logan Marshall-Green) carries the entire film super well. Not to mention the genuinely clever camerawork and directing style, especially since the budget was low. There are about a hundred movies and tv shows combined here and somehow it feels more unique than not. I would recommend this for a fun time at the movies, but it also has some things to think about too (which is nice and refreshing).
