Upgrade is a thrilling and hyper violent vision of the future from the producers of Get Out and The Purge, and the creator of Saw and Insidious. After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Prometheus) is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will "upgrade" his body. The cure–an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM–gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced, and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Upgrade is a violent sci-fi thriller about a man (Logan Marshall-Green) who loses his wife (Melanie Vallejo) and is severely injured in a terrible crime, then gets a high-tech implant that enables him to function physically again. Teens may well be interested, but the graphic violence approaches the level of Saw, writer-director Leigh Whannell's signature film as a writer. The martial arts/sci-fi fighting is well choreographed but gets very gruesome: Expect impalings, stabbings, heads being blown off (as well as nearly cut off), slashings, a point-blank shooting, and more. A character also attempts suicide via overdose. The language is salty, though not constant (expect a few uses of "f--k," "s--t," "goddamn," etc.). There's some drinking, but it's not to excess, and there's no iffy sexual content.
