Sometimes the only thing we can trust is our memory, but what if you can’t even trust that?
‘BLOODSHOT’ is based on the comic book series of the same name. It follows Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) a soldier who wakes up with limited memory, and nanotech with superpowers and regeneration. He starts to get his memory back in flashbacks and sees his wife being killed by a man, and its time for revenge.
That’s the interesting thing about this trailer. Ray gets his revenge, and then its time to reset. He wakes up again, with little memory, except for the flashbacks. This time, it’s the same flashes with a different person. The government is controlling his memory and using his raw instincts of revenge for his wife. The movie looks cool, will probably have plenty of slow-motion shots and kills, but for fans of the comics, there is one major problem. BLOODSHOT doesn’t look like BLOODSHOT.
A simple google if you have never seen the character and you can see he is clearly white, muscular, with red eyes and a dot on the chest. Vin looks like Vin through most of this trailer. You can tell in the cover image that Vin has the red eyes, and kind of looks a little pasty, but it’s nothing like the comics.
‘Bloodshot’ releases on February 21, 2020.
