Grab that full bucket of buttery popcorn and buckle up for Ambulance. It is latest from Michael Bay who has become synonymous with the action genre. You can mention his name to anyone and a string of movies from The Rock to Armageddon to Transformers will come to mind. Ambulance sits right in his wheelhouse and is based on a 2005 Danish film of the same name. Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II play Danny and William, respectively. They were close-knit brothers growing up but drifted as they got older. Danny became involved in luxury cars and robbing banks while William went to serve in the Army. William is feeling strapped for cash needing money for his wife’s surgery and unable to get a job. He turns to Danny for help and finds himself caught up in another one of Danny’s elaborate heists. As you would probably expect, it goes horribly awry leading to a massive shoot out and a highway chase after the brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop and a paramedic (Eiza González) inside.
