Story: Valiant comics character-based Bloodshot is 2020 American superhero underrated movie. Starting Vin Disele as a U. S Marine Ray Garrison whose wife Gina is killed in front of his eyes after an operation in Mombassa after which he is shot to death too. The movie takes its turn when the scientist Dr. Emil Harting brings him back to life with the help of his advance nanites. The particles are running in Bloodshot’s vein, making him superhuman with incredible strength and ability to heal from any major injury. At Dr. Harting RST lab Ray meets his technological aided co-worker: KT a navy diver with the artificially enhanced respiratory system, Jimmy with super robotic legs after his lower body gets blown up in a war, Tibbs whose blindness is cured with 360° camera that connects directly to his optic nerve.

Screenplay: The first half of the movie makes us think about it is another cyborg sci-fic movie, but it is not! The screenplay is exciting and full of twists.
Acting: Vin Diesel is Hollywood darling know for his convincing acting and action-filled movies, but his action couldn’t help to fill the void in this comic based sci-fic movie. Other actors like Eiza and Lamorne did an excellent job.
Direction: Mr. Wilson did a tremendous job while directing this movie, but this revenge drama lack in some points of narration due to the constant deluding between truth and deception it expressed doubt concerning the veracity of the story.
VFX and CGI: The computer graphics and visual effects showing the nanites look real no doubt that VFX team did a quite decent job.
Why watch: Bloodshot has been one of Valiant’s top characters for many years. If you are someone who loves sci-fi and action, you can watch this movie.
Rating: This is among one of those movies which could be great, but due to some minor facts, it isn’t up to the mark—7.5/10
What to expect: Revenge drama with Vin Diesel action and some deluding storyline.
