    Bad plot, awful acting, weird story. The only thing that saves is the CGI....

    I never thought I'd say this, but Vin Diesel is the best thing about this movie. When he first broke into the scene, playing Riddick in the David Twohy's low-budget 2000 sci-fi/horror pic Pitch Black, the onscreen charisma and star power was clearly apparent. And now, two decades and ten thousand Fast and Furious movies later, there is still quite some of it left - given the right material. In Bloodshot, his attempt to kick start a comicbook franchise, he plays Ray Garrison, an ex-soldier who finds himself with superpowers after being transformed by nanotechnology into a supersoldier by a dodgy corporation, who turn out to have dark ulterior motives for their prize soldier (why would they not?). The superhero origin story is one we've seen umpteen and a hundred times before, so the story's flow feels a little tired. But it is rescued by some great action sequences, very good performances - most notably Guy Pearce (who is good in everything he does) and a solid performance from Diesel, who thanfully leaves his Dominic Torretto schtick at the door. The movie, once it ends, feels like the first episode of a TV series, and trades in emotional heft and narrative closure for its rather by-the-numbers story beats. But it is quite an entertaining actioner while you're actually seated in front of the screen. Once you get up, it is best not to think about it too much.

    A boring movie that didn't have a story that made sense.

    не писал ниразу рецензии и не собираюсь, но уже начало бесить это мнение критиков, которые вечно унижают вполне годные проекты.

    Loved this movie, they did not rush the story, they took the time show people overcoming the mistakes they made. Acting was very solid, great supporting cast, with some crazy great special effects.

    Bloodshot feels like a throwback to 1990s era comic book-action movies like a lesser version of Darkman and Robocop. The questionable PG-13 rating and few bad cgi effects aside, it watchable and a few of its sets pieces truly dazzle but it all feels a little too familiar for its own good. I dug on but could sense its junk-food core...(3 out 5 stars for me but likely closer to 2 stars for most people)...side note Vin Diesel looks really good for 53 years old.

    Gotta say, wasn’t in the mood for the movie.

    For what it was aiming for... it did its job. Great action and nice time killer, just like most of Vin Diesel's movies. Worth the watch!
