Quite good

I give this movie 7.9/10. This is a good movie to relax and i like Vin Diesel too :)

4.0

A pretty stock-standard action film which thinks it’s a bit cleverer than it actually is. Fine if bored but nothing more than that. Set up a sequel I’d have no interest in watching.

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.

A bewildering piece of good-bad sci-fi action trash.

Diesel strikes the right balance of contemplation and meatheadedness, and Guy Pearce brings more conviction than is necessary...

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.
