First Glance: “Ambulance”

For better or for worse you always know what you’re going to get with a Michael Bay film. Sometimes his indulgences are too much and make his action-packed blowouts hard to bear. But when he gets it right, his movies can be exciting, thrill-a-minute experiences. Which will his new film “Ambulance” be? It’s hard to tell from the new trailer, but I do know that I like the look of it and it’s something I’ll watch without a moment’s hesitation. It also helps to have such a compelling cast.

Based on a 2005 Danish film, the story sees Yahya Abdul-Mateen II playing a decorated ex-soldier in desperate need of money for his wife’s surgery. He gets an offer from his close friend and foster brother (Jake Gyllenhaal) to help with a bank heist. The payout is $32 million. Of course the heist hits a snag and soon an ambulance and one unfortunate paramedic (Eiza González) are caught in the middle. The trailer shows (as you might expect) a ton of action and Gyllenhaal looks to be having an absolute blast. I enjoy Abdul-Mateen and González so this could be a lot of fun.

“Ambulance” hits theaters February 18th. Check out the trailers below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. Uh, no. The thing with Michael Bay movies increasingly going forward is there’s a little stain left on all of the actors who choose to participate in his b.s. Jake Gyllenhaal, for example, gets the great shame here.

  2. I refuse to watch one milli-second of this trailer. Why? Michael Bay is a no-talent piece of shit, douchebag, xenophobic, women-objectifying, no-brain imbecilic dumb-fuck.
