Bloodshot (2020)

I watched the 2020 Bloodshot movie on Netflix DVD. The film is based on the Valiant comic and stars Vin Diesel. He plays Ray Garrison, who is killed and resurrected as the unstoppable superhero Bloodshot. The movie also stars Sam Heughman as Jimmy Dalton, Eiza Gonzalez as KT, Toby Kebbell as Martin Axe, Guy Pierce as Dr. Emil Harting and Lamome Morris as Wilfred Wigans. Wigans is a character invented for the movie, not from the comic, and is very funny and entertaining.

The movie was only in the theater shortly before Covid-19 hit. The film was quickly digitally released. I liked the movie and will give it 4 out of 5. The extras on the disc are excellent, bloopers, deleted scenes, the comic book and casting, so I’ll give the 5 out of 5.

Control, command, “Burn the building down.”

Critics didn’t like it but the audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes is 78%, more in my range. I’ve never read the Bloodshot comics which may have caused some of the negativeness. Read more about the movie, and possible future Valiant comic releases, on Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
