Upgrade

Upgrade ★★★★

Tightly scripted, well-made sci fi that makes the absolute most of its limited resources to create a dark, compelling future world in which Grey Trace's life as a paraplegic is transformed by a Super AI chip called Stem.

Not exactly groundbreaking - it plays a lot like an extended episode of Black Mirror - but what it does, it does just right. It's fast paced, with immersive sound design, judicious use of CG and enough meat on the bones plot-wise to make it more than just a visceral actioner.
