UPGRADE

SPANISH VERSION

SYNOPSIS

In a near future, where technology has taken the world, a couple is involved in a series of events that take them into a tragedy. Because of that, their lives make a 180° turn. Grey, who is against technology and prefer to do things in the traditional way, suffer a transformation due to that technology. In other words, he is updated in his human functions. The whole plot is developed around the fact of that updating and the consequences of handling that kind of improvements in our society. Ver trailer.

OVERVIEW AND EXPECTATIONS

Science fiction thriller, which shows us the advantages and consequences of allowing technology take humans being lives and the race to keep that advantage of the more powerful companies around the world. The movie illustrates how this competition could take us to developments that can go out of control even for their creators. Another movie that treats this topic could be Anhiquilation, of course, with different perspectives. I was waiting for a better movie in terms of special effects because some of the scenes look pretty unbelievable. However, I appreciate the effort to make us believe that Grey’s movements are involuntary.

MAIN CHARACTERS

Melanie Vallejo                                                                       Logan Marshall-Green

Melanie Vallejo                                  Prometheus - World Premiere

If you click on the name you will see a gallery of photos of each one by Google. Melanie is Australian and known because of her role as a Power Ranger in that last movie, beautiful smile without a doubt. I would like to have a ranking of the main characters in the movies that I post, a reason why if you want to give them a vote you can do it as follows:

¡SPOILERS ALERT! ¡SPOILERS ALERT!

FROM HERE THERE WILL BE CONTENT THAT TALKS DIRECTLY ABOUT SITUATIONS IN THE MOVIE, REASON WHY IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT BEFORE TO CONTINUE IS A GOOD MOMENT TO DO THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOU CAN COME BACK TO FINISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION OTHERWISE IF YOU DO NOT MIND SPOILERS YOU WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CONTINUE. THE IDEA IS NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ANNOYING FROM ME WITH YOU GUYS.

THE BEST SCENES

  1. First time STEM controls Grey to fight against one of the murders of his wife is surprising. Robotic movements of Grey are unexpected even though a little bit weird. How easy he wins is an amazing sequence.
  2. The scene in which Fisk kills the bartender with a sneeze is pretty original, even though it is exaggerated. I think I had not seen something similar in another movie.

THE END

At the end technology overpasses mankind and ends in taking Grey’s body. For Grey it is a happy ending because he finishes on believing that everything was a nightmare. I think there were some illogical parts, maybe because of the time. STEM keeps Grey’s body and life. Its creator is murdered and the policewoman, who is investigating the case, also dies. As a personal quotation, I think if Fisk had the power to kill with a sneeze, he would have killed easily STEM, avoiding a face to face fight. This was a little mistake to create Fisk’s death. Fair enough ending in my opinion.
