A cult sci-fi gem that punches way above its weight, Upgrade stars Logan Marshall-Green (remember him – he was Ryan’s bad brother in The OC). It’s the near-future and Grey Trace (Marshall-Green) is a car mechanic who’s quite happy being an analogue guy in a digital world. His latest gig is a classic car restoration job for a reclusive billionaire tech-god. After a tragedy befalls him, Grey is given an opportunity to use ground-breaking tech within his body to ‘upgrade’ him and go about exacting revenge on those responsible for his predicament. Like Anon a few months ago, this is a film that is full of believable tech and writer-director Leigh Whannell (Saw) has a keen eye for a stylish shot. An action-packed and inventive genre piece that deserves a big audience.
