The Upgrade is a short featurette about Jessy Terrero. His background is as a video director and this does show in the movie. The excellent visuals have a lack of narrative and focus, and don't hang together well. This featurette consists of further interviews with the actors, generally heaping praise on him, and a few words from the man himself on how he approached his first feature. At 5 minutes long it smacks of padding.
There is a feature commentary by the director and actors Kevin Hart, Tom Arnold, Godfrey and Gary Williams. This comes across as a group of guys watching a movie and saying how funny each other was. It does have a few amusing highlights but they are not worth watching the movie again for.
The disc is rounded out with four deleted scenes, two minutes of outtakes of the corpsing variety, a behind the scenes photo gallery, and the excellent “Survivor” safety video.
Picture, sound and extras are all a notch above average but the movie itself is so far below average that you can't see it with a telescope. Not only does Soul Plane lack soul, it also lacks a heart and a brain. Leave this one on the shelf.
