So whilst we wait for Master of Disaster Michael Bay’s version of Little Women or The Cherry Orchard or even Romeo & Juliet ….we have a feeling this might be a very long wait…..we now have a first look at his latest film with the release of the Ambulance trailer with the tagline, ‘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.
As might be expected there’s little that is low key about any Michael Bay film and the Ambulance trailer is no different and our only criticism here is that the entire film seems to be contained into a two minute trailer but see what you think….
Ambulance will be released in cinemas on 18th February 2022
