Despite numerous failed attempts at engineering the perfect super soldier, military scientists (and filmmakers) are still trying to make it happen. The latest cinematic attempt comes in the form of “Bloodshot”. For the many who don’t know, Bloodshot is a comic book superhero of sorts from Valiant Comics who first appeared in 1992. And to be honest, I’ve always found him to be a pretty cool character.
Now he’s getting the big screen treatment and a new trailer is giving us our first look. Vin Diesel plays a soldier returning home to his wife after a tour of duty. Something really bad happens and he wakes up with nano-enhanced powers and a slimy scientist (played by the always great Guy Pearce) giving him the low-down. Turns out he has super strength, advanced quick healing, and no memory. You know, the normal stuff. Yes, much of this sounds familiar, but the trailer shows off some cool action spots and I’m interested in seeing Pearce, Eiza González, and Tobey Kebbell.
“Bloodshot” is slated for a February 21, 2020 release. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
He looks like the Rock in that top picture I was confused dot com for a while there! Yep I’m in for this, sounds like a perfect Saturday nighter!
Pretty impressive special effects for the most effects. And I think Guy Pearce is great.
I think this might be fun. I think Vin Diesel is a better actor than people give him credit for and he always came across as a much nicer guy. My dad thought he was pretty cool and always liked him. Much more than the Crock.
Bloodshot is a pretty cool character so I’m definitely going to give this a shot. I think Vin can pull this off. One reason for his success is that he sticks with movies in his wheelhouse. He knows his strengths and makes good choices based on that.
Vin Diesel’s perfect for a supersoldier role.
Hit definitely fits the mold.
Wasn’t Upgrade already released not long ago? 😉 This does look fun though. Seeing it for Pearce, for sure!
HA! You’re right. But you know how it goes, gotta keep trying that Super Soldier stuff until they get it right. 🙂
