After a passage by Netflix with “6 Underground”, Michael Bay returns in the cinemas. But he does not forsake the action so far, as the muscular trailer for “Ambulance” proves, due on February 23.
When Michael Bay orchestrates a heist, things are obviously not going to go smoothly, so the director can use his skills when it comes to action. Ambulance’s pitch clearly implied this, and the first trailer explosively confirms it.
Two years after the release of 6 Underground on Netflix, the director of Rock and Transformers is preparing his return to theaters. It will be February 23 in France, with the story of two brothers who are planning a robbery. Which, therefore, turns out badly, which forces them to steal an ambulance with, on board, a medical assistant and a patient in critical condition: a police officer whom they have visibly injured.
Led by Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza Gonzalez (caught in a new chase story after Baby Driver), Ambulance bears the mark of its director, whose style we quickly recognize. In the manner of filming the action of course, but also the camera angles or the way sunlight permeates the image.
A feature film which, like all those of Michael Bay, promises to be muscular. But the relationship between the two brothers should be central and bring a little humanity to the story through flashbacks. While the reasons which push them to act thus recall Rock (the non-recognition of the services rendered to the country) as well as No Pain No Gain. See you in four months to see if it was just an impression.
This gives you time to discover the Danish film from which it is inspired, and which is available on Netflix.
