Two robbers, a crime gone bad, a speeding ambulance, car crashes, shootouts, explosions, a hot paramedic. If you thought this sounds like the perfect formula for a Michael Bay movie, then you thought right and Ambulance is here to give it to you with Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Eiza Gonzalez leading the way.
The film is based on the 2005 Danish thriller of the same name and stars Gyllenhaal and Abdul-Mateen as two desperate men who attempt the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history. When the getaway goes wrong, they swipe an ambulance and the chase is on.
Also in the cast are Garret Dillahunt, Keir O’Donnell, A Martinez, and Moses Ingram.
This is Bay’s first theatrical film since 2017’s Transformers: The Last Knight. He most recently directed 6 Underground which went exclusive to Netflix. Honestly, there’s something kinda comforting about a big-time Michael Bay movie being in theaters again, and this one looks pretty awesome with a great cast.
Ambulance opens on April 8th.
In this breakneck thriller from director-producer Michael Bay, decorated veteran Will Sharp (Emmy winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Candyman, The Matrix Resurrections), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t—his adoptive brother Danny (Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Zodiac, Spider-Man: Far From Home). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no.
But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Baby Driver) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.
