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

    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.

    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

    Part cyberpunk action film, part body horror, all badass. Upgrade is one of the most entertaining movies of the year. The revenge premise is standard enough, and even some of the twists along the way are pretty on the nose, but their execution is flawless and haunting. It's led by an insanely charismatic lead, some amazingly stylish directing, and great use of violence. That last one may sound a bit odd, but let me put it this way: this movie actually made me gasp. It doesn't dwell on the violence, but it doesn't shy from it either when it needs to. It's perfect execution all around and an absolute thrill ride.
