It's too bad that "Bloodshot" doesn't seem up to the task of fully skewering its genre and finding something new in the process, instead relying on resurrecting the dead for another bout of briefly diverting entertainment.

Bloodshot just isn't worth the effort.

It's Diesel-powered dumb fun.

While Bloodshot modestly delivers on the most rudimentary level, there's barely enough juice in that nanotechnology to bring such a paper-thin construct to life once, much less again.
March 13, 2020
By the time our man/machine finds himself in the time-honored pickle of dangling by one hand from a ledge 50 stories above the ground, Bloodshot has already given us an action movie hangover.

Vin Diesel is dependable, if not especially challenged by a film that has most fun in the margins.

The action sequences look like they were edited by a Cuisinart.

[T]here is not much else to do while watching Bloodshot - other than tally the minutes.

An instantly forgettable mid-budget affair that relies on heavy dollops of CGI that would've looked cut-rate even in the early '90s...
March 12, 2020
The premise becomes little more than a device by which the filmmakers can get Vin Diesel to flex his muscles, sneer into the camera, and engage in CGI-crafted, gravity-defying fights with other equally unexpressive actors.
March 12, 2020
There's a dull thud to "Bloodshot," a bruising action movie that can't equal its brawn with brains... "Bloodshot" is, at least, a little more interesting than it initially appears.
March 11, 2020
If Vin Diesel were a 12-year-old boy, he couldn't have dreamt up a better movie for his fan base than "Bloodshot."
March 11, 2020
When the best thing about an action movie is its use of a great but 43-year-old Talking Heads song, you know you're in trouble.
March 11, 2020
"Bloodshot" is a lively and amiably stupid action movie, given an extra dose of atmosphere by the presence of Vin Diesel.
March 11, 2020
A bewildering piece of good-bad sci-fi action trash.

But if Bloodshot honestly expects us to invest in the tragedy of Ray's predicament-his transformation into a mind-wiped army of one-Diesel isn't up to the task.
March 11, 2020
Diesel strikes the right balance of contemplation and meatheadedness, and Guy Pearce brings more conviction than is necessary...
March 11, 2020
Mostly, though, it's a lot of bog-standard action stuff glommed onto a deeper metaphysical muddle; Inception drawn in extra-thick Sharpie and testosterone.
March 11, 2020
Diesel is still mostly cartoon brawn, a sight-gag slab with just enough winking to never quite bore, even if he also never quite excites.
March 11, 2020
The movie is presented as the story of a man who hasn't figured out who he is yet. But that's not quite right. Instead, it's a movie that doesn't seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up.
