Ambulance Review: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Hey so its was my birthday over the weekend and what better way to spend the day then going along to the cinema, I decided to go for Micheal Bays new directorial outing AMBULANCE starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza Gonzàlez. The film centres around a bank heist gone wrong and mayhem then ensures as Jake and Yahya end up up trying to escape in a stolen ambulance.
This film is pure Micheal Bay mayhem, the over all coined phrase “Bayhem” is very strong in this film but its a good thing, the film is so intense from start to finish with amazing visuals and action set peices, the overall ride you go on from start to finish feels intense like a film such as this should feel!
Bay has found a new camera he loves to use in the form of the drone cam and when these particular shots happen it really brings you in close to the action and increases the intensity of the scene.
The car chase and the over all bank heist in the film are so well shot the tension with such a small space of the ambulance is not lost in the over the top action and I think this is down to Bays direction but also the chemistry between the 3 main leads. Jake plays the unhinged bank robber so well, you can’t hate him however as he is just to daym charismatic throughout the whole film. Yahya does great as the more level headed brother and you really do buy into the fact that these two guys grew up together and took very different paths but have each others backs at every cost the brotherly love and bond that shines through is definitely down to this excellent casting. You also buy Eiza as the EMT she does such a great job at not just being another damsel in distress but holds her own against her captives and how the whole events around her are out of her control.
Bay makes this film look beautiful, amazing shots of L.A peppered in with some unrivalled action moments, one of the last scenes of the movie is just so epic it makes you feel like you are watching Bay in his prime with movies like “The Rock” and “Bad Boys”
Overall you need to go see this film this is a perfect action film and one of Bay’s finest entries into his filmography.
