    This is a really bad movie
    As a physician I thought an "Ambulance" movie could be interesting, but this movie has i) so big holes in the manuscript that you can drive trucks through it: for exampl driving an ambulance for an hour or so in LA traffic without any traffic jam at all, or the police not capable of stopping the ambulance at all, or ad hoc planning and conduct a major car exchange operation including rebuilding a car with a mounted machine gun which would take hours... ii) lots of medical errors. The producer did obviously not listen to the medical consultant. It is, for example, not possible to perform open abdominal surgery in an ambulance at full speed (also with no anestethics or muscle relaxants). It is not possible to defibrillate a sinus rhythm. And the only-in-movies importance of removing bullets! And lots of more.

    Iii) a totally absurd family story (I do not want to rob a bank, but since will do anything for my brother it is ok both to rob the bank and kill a bunch of cops).

    It is a film you maybe can watch on a flight or similar place where you are stuck for hours and have nothing else to do. Not even sleep.

    Drone sickness
    Hi, I'm TV's Micheal Bay, I'm not on TV I just create "made for TV movies" that my wealth and influence allow them to be on the big screen. I wanted to be as unbiased as possible in my review so here's my AI drone to sum it up.. The key to a great movie is to bring out the motion sickness in the audience. Whizzing up the side of a building that's not even on the call sheet and then back down as quickly as possible. Do this several times so the non SAG buildings get as much screen time as possible and the viewer is spinning on their couch. Throw in a plot point or two and have a hyper-masculine character shoot and blow stuff up. It's film 101.

    Michael Bay put his name to THIS?
    Undoubtedly, the worst thing Michael Bay has ever been involved with. Yes it has innovative camera angles, and oodles of non-stop roller-coaster action but unfortunately all at the expense of believability, script, realism and intellect. I'm all for immersive action experience in lieu of some realism but this is utterly devoid of any research or knowledge.

    The script I suggest, has been written by 10 year olds who have just watched their first action movie.

    The acting (in light of the crap they've been handed) do quite well I suppose. But only just. The entire movie is kind to unattentive audiences and makes good background watching since there's no plot, complex twists and turns. Acrually, it's completely DEVOID of any of these. Shame on you MB. Must try harder.

    Absolute garbage
    This is 2hrs + of my life that I won't get back, such a waste. NOTHING realistic, everything "Over The Top" - that's kinda a Michael Bay thing, but this is just garbage. Example: if ya'll ever seen a highway chase, choppers fly high so they they can track a vehicle, who the F would order them to fly under bridges. This movie is CONTSANTLY breaking the idiot barrier.... I was gonna give this 2/10 stars as the action is almost cool, but really, thinking on it, lighting your feet on fire has about the same excitement. If you make it to the end, you'll be dumber for it. Not sure why this film was made, or what prompted MB to give this a go other than to say "Can I make a movie that will be widely panned?"

    Bad Directing
    This movie has an interesting premise, a thriller set in an ambulance. So when I started watching this movie I had no bad expectations. However after ten to fifteen minutes in, I turned it off because I couldn't take more. The directing and camera work is horrible, it made me nauseous. The characters were also like cardboard, now I don't know if they got fleshed out as the movie continued, but what I saw I did not like. Overall this is a movie that had a unique premise, and therefore potential, but it was badly executed and the directing made it simply unwatchable. In conclusion, disappointing.

    Best Michael Bay since THE ROCK
    I was surprised, in the good way, by this film that I was not optimistic about. I expected a huge high scale, budget crap. But what wonderful it was for me to discover Jack Gyllenhal 's character and his "foster" brother as the bad guys of the story, in the gangsters roles !!! What a surprise, a damn good surprise. OK, I agree they are ambivalent characters, not entirely villains, awful, disgusting bad guys. I also appreciate the supporting characters, the fast paced rythm, and the tribute to HEAT in the bank heist scene, and Bay own's tribute for THE ROCK and BAD BOYS, during a dialogue between two characters.

    Shame about Bay, but the film's okay
    AMBULANCE is another typical Michael Bay movie, once again directed by the hyperactive child behind the TRANSFORMERS franchise. A shame, as the plot itself is quite interesting, a remake of a Danish film that feels like one of the classic car chase thrillers of the 1970s. Essentially it's a couple of guys fleeing the cops in the titular vehicle, with endless explosive action. I quickly tired of Bay's approach, with the pointless drone shots way too much, but this is nonetheless fairly watchable thanks to the acting (Gyllenhaal in particular), bravura stunts and crashes and suspense, the surgery scene being a highlight.
