critics consensus

Like its augmented protagonist, Upgrade's old-fashioned innards get a high-tech boost -- one made even more powerful thanks to sharp humor and a solidly well-told story. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Upgrade

  • Sep 24, 2020
    Upgrade is Blumhouse's first entry into science fiction and it is outstanding. Disturbing twists, fast-paced action (on speed), cool sci-fi technology, and an outstanding performance by Logan Marshall-Green, the unlucky visitor on Prometheus and in The Invitation.

    Fun, but mostly predictable Sci-Fi. Feels like the first Terminator movie. So for that reason it's worth a look.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    Upgrade is a unique, original sci-fi tale that bodes well with its technological concepts, dazzling cinematography and well-crafted story. This cyberpunk-esque envisioning and bloody-thirsty, quirky-humor-filled ride is an under-the-radar hit that is underrated for the year and deserves your attention. 4.2/5
