This is your next date night movie. Why? Because you men will be mesmerised by the action at every turn, with beyond-epic explosions and fight scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat. For us women, there’s eye candy in the form of Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious), who plays lead character Ray Garrison, and Sam Heughan (Outlander) portraying Jimmy Dalton. There’s comedic relief for all with Lamorne Morris (New Girl) as the loveable yet sassy IT guy Wilfred Wigans.
Bloodshot (2020) follows Garrison, a slain soldier who is re-animated with superpowers by the ever-so-talented Dr Emil Harting (Guy Pearce). It’s when this elite soldier is brought back to life by Dr Harting’s advanced technology after being killed in battle that the story truly begins. Suddenly, he finds himself with superhuman strength, even faster healing abilities and a thirst for vengeance. Keen to try out his new skill set, he becomes a superhero with an upgrade and a dark twist as he searches for the man who killed his wife – or who he thinks killed his wife. Alongside Katie or KT (Eiza González), this potential new love interest helps him to discover that everything may not be as it seems.
Based on the best-selling comic book by Kevin VanHook, Bob Layton and Don Perlin, we’re picking there will be a sequel, or perhaps even a prequel. Directed by Dave Wilson, this action-packed movie is a must-see.
Can Garrison even trust himself? You’ll find out because you’ll trust our recommendation and book your tickets to discover the truth.
