Movie Info

Over one day across the streets of L.A., three lives will change forever. In this breakneck thriller from director-producer Michael Bay, decorated veteran Will Sharp (Emmy winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Candyman, The Matrix Resurrections), desperate for money to cover his wife's medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn't--his adoptive brother Danny (Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Zodiac, Spider-Man: Far From Home). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife's survival on the line, Will can't say no. But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Baby Driver) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.

    ludicrous story with some great action

    When it comes to films directed by Michael Bay, everyone should know what to expect at this point. You'll either get a subdued action film like 13 Hours or a bombastic extravaganza like Transformers. There's really no taming Bay when it comes to his filmmaking techniques. Ambulance is his latest thrill-ride of a movie and while I enjoyed this one more than most of his recent films, it's still too much commotion for one movie. Here's why I recommend Ambulance for action fans, but also why I place an asterisk on my recommendation.  Danny Sharp (Jake Gyllenhaal), a criminal whose brother, Will Sharp (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) is in need of some money, decides to let him in on a bank job they're about to pull. Joining them and failing to accomplish the robbery, these two brothers steal an ambulance to flee from the police. This ambulance also happens to have a paramedic on board with a police officer who has been shot. This makes for an endless car chase from start to finish, which is what kept me engaged the entire time. This, however, was also a detriment to the movie.  The camerawork in this film almost felt like it was trying too hard to keep the audience engaged in this very simple premise. From many twisting drone shots around buildings and running cameras under cars, I can see that this film will visually make certain viewers nauseous. I admired Bay's attempt at making a very hyper-fast film, but it only worked for me about half of the time. Still, this is a film that has a surprisingly devoted cast.  Jake Gyllenhal always brings his A-Game and this film was no exception to that. I've also admired Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's recent work as well and this film only extended my liking for him even further. The biggest standout to me here though is Eiza González's portrayal of the paramedic, Cam Thompson. There have been many films, including ones I love like Baby Driver, where her performances were below average, to say the least. If you continue to pursue acting though, certain performers can improve, and I believe that's happening with her. I was genuinely surprised to see that she was delivering a solid performance. I look forward to seeing more from her now.  Overall, Ambulance isn't going to win anyone over if they're not a fan of Michael Bay's work, but it's definitely among his better films, especially in the last number of years. This entire film is impossible and would never happen in reality, specifically the things they're able to pull off in the ambulance as it's in motion. I rolled my eyes multiple times and cringed at a few lines of dialogue, but I also has a fun time with it, and that's really all I'm looking for in a movie like this. It's loud, the music overpowers certain scenes and the camerawork will deter some viewers for sure, but I recommend Ambulance otherwise.
