Upgrade

A stellar sci-fi action flick from creator of Saw

A cyberpunk schlockfest in the grand tradition of Robocop, Upgrade is modest in budget, big on ideas and a total blast. The new film written and directed by Saw and Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell unfolds in the digital world of the very near future: cars are self-driving, homes are run by Alexa-like AI, and surveillance drones patrol the skies (Whannell’s hometown Melbourne stands in for a North American metropolis). Whannell shoots the action with dizzying inventiveness and there are brilliant conceits, such as shotguns built into human arms and a nanobot-laced sneeze that kills. A sci-fi thrill ride.
