Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when the world of Grey, a self-labeled technophobe, is turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant.
Grey's a stay-at-home mechanic, whose wife is Asha. One day, Grey asks Asha to help him return a car to his client. Whilst Grey and Asha's self-driving car malfunctions, it crashes. Grey watches helplessly as Asha bleeds to death next to him. Grey returns home - a widowed quadriplegic, under the care of his mother. His wife''s death and the inability of police to identify their attackers cause him to sink into a depression. After a suicide attempt, he's offered to have high tech chip implanted - enabling him to walk. Though initially hesitant, he's persuaded to have the surgery..
Stem asks Grey to hold the drawn tattoo in front of his eyes in order to read it for him. However, Stem already has the picture (since he has drawn it) in his memory, so there was no logical reason to re-scan it again for the purpose of reading it. See more »
As a quadriplegic it must be frustrating for you for someone who likes to get things done with their hands.

In lieu of text, the production companies and title are instead narrated by an artificial female voice, represented visually by sound waves. See more »

Now This Is How You Make A Low Budget Movie
I went into this movie having no clue what it was about and wasn't expecting much, but I loved it.
There are innumerable movies with huge budgets that simply fall flat, and Upgrade, with a Budget of around $5,000,000, which doesn't cover the cost of catering on some of these huge budgeted flops, honestly looked like it cost a lot more than it actually did.
Intelligent script, good action, very few unnecessary scenes, and though I thought it was sure to let me down, a very good ending.
And although I have seen much of Logan Marshall-Green's work and was never a huge fan, he does a very good job here.
