Bloodshot: Nathan's Movie Review

Updated on May 9, 2020

Nathan is a film critic and aspiring author with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his writings will help launch his careers.

Vin Diesel is back in action in his newest film Bloodshot. Based on the comic of the same name, Bloodshot follows soldier Ray Garrison who is killed in action and brought back to life by the tech genius Dr. Emil Harting. Dr. Harting infused Ray's blood with nanites which gives him the ability to quickly heal when harmed. What he doesn't know is that Emil erased Ray's memory and gave him false memories in order to send Ray on execution missions while Ray's under the delusion that he's out for revenge on his own. But with the help of KT, Ray figures out what Emil's been hiding, but can he take back his life or will Emil come out on top?

I was pretty split on this film. It was fun and had some awesome action sequences and the plot was decent, but there were elements of the film that didn't add up. (Spoilers ahead if you don't want to know anything). First, it's mentioned by Emil that the nanites are constantly at work making sure the body is at its best. So how in the world did they give Ray superhuman strength? I also found it incredibly unbelievable that Ray could mentally download information of the internet and ping GPS signals to hunt down a certain car. I realize the nanites are technically microscopic robots but that's pushing it a little isn't it? It's like the writers rolled Captain America and Ultron into one person and ran with it. Now, I'm not versed in the comics so I can't tell you if any of that is comic accurate but I'm really hoping it isn't. Being immortal is cool enough. There's really no need to add all that extra stuff.

I did love the acting in the film. Vin Diesel showed that he does have an emotional side and can be dramatic when he wants to be. The opening scene in which he thinks his wife is dead was heart-wrenching and there's also another scene about three-quarters of the way in which your heart just breaks for Vin.

All in all, the film was fun and doesn't require a huge amount of thought. It's good for what it is and keeps you entertained from start to finish but some plot holes just can't be overlooked. I give the film a 2.5 out of 4.
