For three weeks, we’re reviving the great superhero movie rewatch to take a look at the 2020 releases to date and also one that I missed the first time ’round. Up first: Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel, which takes a very nifty concept and makes it supremely uninteresting. Sometimes, he is not Groot, more’s the pity.
It would’ve been nice if they got a better lead. Diesel’s range goes all the way from A to B, and he never actually makes it to B in this movie. It doesn’t help that he has the same blank expression on his face throughout. (It’s perhaps telling that his best role is a voice-only part. It’s equally telling that he’s able to do more acting by saying the same three words over and over again in the MCU than he manages in Bloodshot.)
