I’ve been keeping up with the Sony Pictures release “Bloodshot” here on the website already and the last time it was discussed was with the International Trailer #2; This film opens today in theaters around the country so check out the Official Poster, premise, casting and more before I offer up my editorial rumblings about it.
The Synopsis: After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he originally thought.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I had mentioned that I was interested in seeing this one in the theaters during one of the matinee showings at my local cinema, I think that all of the Coronavirus Pandemic bans on large public assembly will keep me from doing this. When you consider that in addition to the concerts that we cover here on PiercingMetal that Hockey, Basketball and Baseball have all placed a hold on their in progress and upcoming seasons AND that Broadway has gone dark, it makes proper sense. It’s impossible to gauge how long this mess will go on but we can remain hopeful that its less than has been forecast so we can all get back to more of a normal life. What do you readers think? Will you be braving a movie theater amid this scenario or waiting for signs of all good. Chime in down below in the comments. See you next time.
