this movie is why mother nature is trying to kill us
I've been a fan of Valiant Comics since the 90s, and if I were gonna start mining it for a movies, Bloodshot would probably be near the bottom of the list. Magnus Robot Fighter has more world building, X-O Manowar has a more intriguing protagonist, Archer and Armstrong, Ninjak, Immortal Warrior, Harbinger, Shadowman, Quantum & Woody... I find them all more interesting than Bloodshot. And the movie speaks for itself. Despite the superhero action beats, it's a fairly generic high-concept action flick with cardboard characters and plenty if clichés - even the characters comment on it! It stages a few cool fights, but they keep getting mired in slow motion, and as far as our main hero goes, I fear this is another example of Vin Diesel requiring that he be the macho-est of all macho boys, so he's essentially unstoppable even before the transformation into a super-soldier, and all the pearls his friends clutch about his final deactivation prove to be false stakes. Dead on arrival in terms of franchise-making as it's only ever okay.
More like a videogame than anything.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
