With the cinemas closed until further notice, we could consider ourselves blessed when we are craving a fantastic movie, that we have the internet because we’re able to watch films.
Whilst many films have been pushed back to the end of 2020 or even top 2021, several studios have opted to put their films straight on Prime, Netflix, Disney+, along with other streaming platforms. We might be unable to see Fast and Furious 9 anytime soon, but it does not necessarily mean that we cannot watch Vin Diesel in his most recent movie Bloodshot. This movie is based on the comics published by Valiant Comics of the name and kicks of the comics’ planned cinematic universe.
The US soldier Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) comes back from his most recent mission and plans on going on a holiday with his wife to the Amalfi Coast. One night they’re intimidated by a bunch of mercenaries that want to understand what his last mission was around and because Ray cannot tell them anything, they kill him after killing his wife.
Some time afterward, Ray wakes up in Growing Spirit Tech a center specializing in technology. The owner, Dr. Emil Harting (Guy Pearce) describes to Ray that he tries to cybernetically improve US soldiers who would otherwise be invalids. Since no one maintained the body of Ray after his death, his body was sent by the military to RST, and Ray’s body is genetically enhanced. Speed, strength, and self-healing.
He’s introduced into the other patients who survived this procedure, former US Navy diver KT (Eiza González) along with the two former soldiers, Jimmy Dalton (Sam Heughan) and Marcus Tibbs (Alex Hernandez).
During the process, Ray lost his memory but his memories slowly come back following a tune he heard triggered his memory. He escapes the RST center to go after the man who murdered his wife and buys down him in Budapest. He has picked up by RST. It ends up that Harting reprogramming him over and over again for his plan to get rid of his rivals and is stripping off Ray’s memories.
When Ray is delivered to another guy on Harting’s list, the programmer Wilfred Wigans (Lamorne Morris) activates an EMP bomb, which stops the transmitter and so RST can’t control him anymore. After Wigans informs that his wife is alive and Ray that which RST is currently doing to him, but not his wife anymore. Ray then aims his revenge.
This movie would have been perfect for it, although I’m not a fan of 3D or even IMAX since I think most movies do not need it. The special effects are amazing, and it is full of activity and awesome fight scenes.
The narrative may be easy and simple to follow — you get what’s going on but it is not over-the-top ridiculous. After KT is breaking the ring of reprogramming Ray, an epic battle involving him and Dalton finishes the movie. Of course, in a film such as this, some scenes are created to please the audience and I am one of them being appreciated by these.
Make some popcorn if you’re planning to bring the cinema into your house and get your snacks of choice and press play. It is possible to stream Bloodshot on YouTube, Google Play, or Amazon Prime.
