“Ray’s transition from soldier to superpowered killer holds no surprises, and the nanites mean the severe damage his body takes in the many battles is rendered bloodless. There’s enough entertainment offered to those looking for mild popcorn fun, but beyond that, it adheres far too closely to the average origin blueprint.” Bloody Disgusting
Bloodshot was released by Sony on March 13th 2020. A digital release has been brought forward due to the Coronavirus situation.
