A brutal mugging leaves Grey Trace paralyzed in the hospital and his beloved wife dead. A billionaire inventor soon offers Trace a cure — an artificial intelligence implant called STEM that will enhance his body. Now able to walk, Grey finds that he also has superhuman strength and agility — skills he uses to seek revenge against the thugs who destroyed his life.
_We... Are Stenom..._ Based on the trailer alone, I was pretty sure _Upgrade_ was gonna be a movie I enjoy. But after those last couple of minutes? Now? I'm pretty sure this is gonna be my favourite movie of the year. _Final rating:★★★★ - Very strong appeal. A personal favourite._
Low budget, but well done sci-fi. It's not overly cerebral; there's a consistent amount of action throughout. Worth a watch.
