The state of blockbuster cinema and cinema is in utter disarray as superheroes take over and everything else moves on to streaming platforms but, man, man, how nice to see Michael Bay again in good shape. (No offense to Transformers.) The brother who gave us Bad Boys and The rock returns in February with new ’90s action thriller-Brukheimer-y Ambulance. Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II star, and the first trailer maximizes their charisma. Cars also explode.
Here’s the full synopsis:
Decorated veteran Will Sharp (Abdul-Mateen II), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, seeks help from the only person he knows he shouldn’t, his brother adoptive Danny (Gyllenhaal). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offered him a score: the biggest bank robbery in Los Angeles history: $ 32 million. With his wife’s survival at stake, Will can’t say no.
But when their getaway turns sour, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with an injured cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Baby Driver‘s Eiza González) on board. In a high-speed chase that never stops, Will and Danny must escape a massive city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive and somehow try. another not to kill each other, while performing the craziest escape LA has ever seen. .
Michael bay does Heat. Michael bay does Heat!! OK, technically Micheal Bay is making the 2005 Danish film Ambulance, like the scenario Chris Fedak (Prodigal son, Mandrel) is a low-key remake, but, come on, Michael Bay does it Heat.
Ambulance arrives on the big screens, where shots of bank robberies, helicopter chases and Gyllenhaal bravado are expected to be especially well played on February 18.
