A lively and amiably stupid action movie, given an extra dose of atmosphere by the presence of Vin Diesel.

Relies on heavy dollops of CGI that would've looked cut-rate even in the early '90s...

Vin Diesel is dependable, if not especially challenged by a film that has most fun in the margins.

Overall, Bloodshot... scores on its ambitious sci-fi imagination and a superhero, who is always ready for action.

It's too bad that Bloodshot doesn't seem up to the task of fully skewering its genre and finding something new in the process...

The fast-paced, ever-changing storyline is the strength of this movie.

The ideas that drive Bloodshot could have been pushed a lot further. The film almost gets into Inception-style territory, only to pull back when it was threatening to be quite interesting. But, as an old-school actioner, that reminded me occasionally of the genre's golden age, you could do worse than this comic book spin-off.

There's a dull thud to "Bloodshot," a bruising action movie that can't equal its brawn with brains... "Bloodshot" is, at least, a little more interesting than it initially appears.

It's a stack of wormed-over action tropes, and to make matters worse, the movie knows it - and yet does not know enough to spare us its missteps in the first place.

[Diesel] looks, more than ever, like Mr. Clean fused with Adam Sandler, but that's part of his action charisma, which in "Bloodshot" is at full boil.
