“Australian Leigh Whannell, writer of Saw and The Mule and former bathtub-bound local film reviewer, fires all futuristic guns a-blazin’ with a pulpy, pacey, punchy science fiction romp about a quadriplegic who embarks on a violent AI-assisted revenge spree.

Upgrade is a veritable cornucopia of genre thrills and spills, machine-tooled for fans of action-packed sci-fi. Influences and inspirations are strewn all over the place – from Cronenbergian body horror to Verhoevenian schlock to a dank Ridley Scott or Denis Villeneuve ‘world gone wrong’ aesthetic, infused with a scuzzy grindhouse vibe.” – Luke Buckmaster / The Guardian
