shaky-cam and zoomed-in framing make it very difficult to follow what is going on.
Another facet of the movie that doesn't work is the story. While trying to mash The Matrix with Hardcore Henry, the end product is as bad as you expect. I never felt attached to any of the characters, didn't care what they cared about, or ever wanted to see them again. Even when a character grows a conscience, it comes across as desperate to keep the plot moving and artificial. At least it's wrapped in references lifted out of Fight Club and even calls itself out for the Reservoir Dogs one.
There are three things that I did like about Bloodshot. First, Lamorne Morris injects some much-needed humor in this drag of a movie. I would love for him to get more roles so I can see him in actually good films. He shows up right before the third act, so he's not the brightest light at the end of this very dark tunnel. Second, Eiza Gonzalez continues to be a strong actress that doesn't stand out but makes a mark in her roles. Finally, some of the set design and costumes were very nice. This movie proves that you can dig into the genre and make it look great on a big screen. At one point, a character puts on a rectangular metal helmet, and it looks incredible.
So like I said before, Bloodshot is not worth potentially getting COVID-19 over, so don't go to the theater to see it. If you are looking for movies to stream and come across it there, then it might be worth your time if you really want to see it. Other than that, I can't see a world in which this would be an acceptable way to spend an hour and forty minutes.
There were inconsistent aspect ratio and lenses used which became really distracting
While I did appreciate my experience, The Invisible Man is not devoid of criticism. Most of the problems I had with it come from its leaps in logic. There are basic situations where the explanation given by the film is not satisfactory in the moment. These were done to keep audiences on their toes and drive suspense, though all attempts at that fall flat if you don't buy it. What makes this problem notable is that its a recurring problem throughout the movie's runtime. So if it doesn't work the first time, then it probably will continue to fail until the end.
As stated above, The Invisible Man is actually a good time at the theater. While it's not for the whole family, it is something a little more mature for audiences that are craving content in this weird time. The best part is probably Elizabeth Moss, who plays the main character; her performance and ability to sell the scenes is what makes it all come together. It won't be nominated for anything come awards season, but I wouldn't be surprised if some bring it up for their personal favorites at the end of the year.
Some joke about invisible or something
