Bloodshot is a 2020 American superhero film based on the Valiant Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be the first installment in a series of films set within a Valiant Comics shared cinematic universe. Directed by David S. F. Wilson (in his feature directorial debut) from a screenplay by Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer and a story by Wadlow, the film stars Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, and Guy Pearce. It follows a Marine who was killed in action, only to be brought back to life with superpowers by an organization that wants to use him as a weapon. Bloodshot was theatrically released in the United States on March 13, 2020, by Sony Pictures Releasing. A sequel is in development.

Plot

After he and his wife are murdered, marine Ray Garrison is resurrected by a team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine - Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility to get revenge, only to discover that there's more to the conspiracy than he thought.

Bad Qualities

  1. The movie has an overall generic feel.
    • The entire movie is what you would expect from a generic superhero movie (except for those like Batman), the hero's origin was from some dangerous accident and then they fight evil.
    • The soundtrack is generic, despite some of it being good.
  2. Really poor action in the movie. They look like they're trying to make the movie look edgy, and they end up looking like bland copies of some action scenes in Spider-Man (which was owned by Sony).
    • To add to this, on one of the fighting scenes in the bathroom, the hero is literally fighting his own reflection. Second, Ray's reflecting off is in the corner of the bathroom and he is standing right by the doorway on the exact same side as the mirror. At best, it would be catching a reflection of one of Ray's arms.
  3. Regarding BQ#1, Emil Harting (the main antagonist of Bloodshot) isn't better, his evil plans is just to destroy the city and kill the hero, that's it.
  4. Too much stuff in the movie that doesn't make sense at all, when Raymond Garrison contacted Gina Garrison (Raymond Garrison's ex-girlfriend), Gina literally still has his last name even though they broke up 5 years before 2020).
  5. The main protagonist of the movie's character design is unoriginal. It is just a carbon mix of Superman, Iron Man, Thor, and a little bit of Dr. Eggman.
  6. The infamous alternate ending scene of the movie.
  7. Vin Diesel gives a terrible performance as the titular character.
  8. The trailer spoils the entire movie, including the villain twist.

Good Qualities

  1. Really funny quotes in the movie like "Drop the gun" in the super-soldier scene.
  2. The "Psycho Killer" song.
  3. Decent ending.
  4. Despite being generic, the soundtrack composed by Steve Jablonsky is pretty decent and is a nice reminiscence of his work on the Transformers movies.
  5. Decent pacing.

Reception

Bloodshot received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval percentage of 30% based on 155 critics and an average rating of 4.54/10. The site's critics consensus reads: "Bloodshot gives Vin Diesel a solid opportunity to indulge in old-school action that should satisfy fans, even if the end result is disappointingly mediocre.". On Metacritic, the film has a score of 44 out of 100 based on 35 critic reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B" on an A+ to F scale.

Oh trust me, Birds of Prey, Kissing Booth 2, and live-action Mulan are much, MUCH worse than Bloodshot.

The Valiant universe deserves better. I wanted Ninjak and Shadowman. At least Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe was at least good

"The movie has an overall generic feel."

Almost every movie nowadays does.
