The robbery goes awry and the two brothers are soon on the run in an ambulance with an EMT and a dying policeman as hostages. (Filmaffinity)

film reviews

“A B-movie with decent premise spanning 136 interminable minutes, Ambulance maintains such a frenetic pace from start to finish that it ultimately feels exhausting, and not in a good way.” Frank Scheck: the Hollywood journalist

“‘Ambulance’ will raise your pulse and tug at your heartstrings… [It] works like a charm (…) Note: ??? (of 4)” Pat Padua: The Washington Post

“The film‘s stripped-down narrative allows for an emotional intimacy and vulnerability between characters that Bay avoids, mocks, or simply aestheticizes (…) Rating: ??½ (out of 4)” Derek Smith: Slant

The casting

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal became known for the independent film Donnie Darko (2001) and October Sky (1999).

We recommend The Guilty (2021)a clever thriller.
