Bloodshot [Movie Review] |  This is one movie that I do not have the intention of watching it in the cinema.  Then it happens that I was to kill time in between meetings, so I decided to just give the movie a go (this was way before the Movement Control Order).

Upon his successful revival, Dr. Emil, the company's CEO told Ray that he is the first successful candidate to have been resurrected using a special nanite technology that will immediately 'repair' his physical injuries in battles. Ray has no recollection of whoever he was before the ressurrection - a total memory loss. 

Ray was later introduced to other patients, KT (whom later fall in love with Ray), Jimmy and Marcus who don't like him that much. 

Later, while drinking with KT, Ray experienced flashbacks of his former life and determined to hunt down Martin to kill him for killing Gina. Ray manages to escape from the facility in KL and as he was about to gun down Martin in Budapest, Martin keep on saying that 'they are all liars' which Ray took no mind off. He later was picked up by the trios who brought him back to the facility for reprogramming.

The reprogramming in fact was Dr. Emil wiping his former memory and programming a new false memory of Gina's killer, in his bid to eliminate his rivals. After the successful reprogramming of the new memory. Ray wakes up with new determination to kill another guy, Nick for killing his wife.

But Nick has prepared for his attack, by kidnapping and having his own programmer. Wilfred to build an EMP bomb that could paralyse Ray's attack. Ray managed to kill Nick but was shut down by Wilfred using the bomb. 

Wilfred managed to clean Ray's memories and sever his connection to Rising Spirit. Later, Ray discovered so many lies about his life after the resurrection by Rising Tech.

What will Ray do with his newly found life?
Will Rising Tech ever let him go?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.5/ 5.0 I love the plot twist of the movie when you first thought that Ray was doing the right thing. Then you'll realised that he was being manipulated and programmed. Is that the end of his life? Nope. Then comes another plot twist where he is salvageable and programmed for the better.

Or is it for the worse?

I actually learnt a lot about our future after watching this movie - there is no ending to the possibilities in the future. 

Cast: 4.5/ 5.0 Vin Diesel being Vin Diesel - can you expect a lovey dovey and romantic character from him? Of course the character will pay to his advantage. The others? Love them - both pretty and functional - befitting their characters!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right companions.

Ahh this movie sounds not so bad, seems good too! I haven’t watch it yet since same as you, I didn’t have the intention to add this movie to my to be watch list the moment it had been release hehe but now I have a second thought as perhaps I’ll watch it later hehe. It’s kinda reminds of the Ghost in the Shell movie too.
