Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot didn’t exactly kill it during its shortened run at the box office. Unfortunately, it never had a chance to recover with the markets shutting down during the second week of release, but there’s a chance to find a brand new audience on digital. To celebrate yesterday’s early home release, Sony Pictures has made the first 9-minutes available online.
The opening minutes of Bloodshot set up the character’s origin, as soldier Ray Garrison survives a dangerous mission and reunites with his lover. But their time alone on an Italian isle is interrupted by a group of mercenaries led by Toby Kebbell’s Martin Axe.
My review of Bloodshot gave it more credit than most, with supporting players such as Eiza Gonazalez, Guy Pearce, and Lamorne Morris standing out.
