Ambulance takes Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Brokeback Mountain), Emmy winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Candyman, The Matrix Resurrections) and Eiza Gonzales (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Baby Driver) across the streets of LA under scorching heat in an intense high-speed, breakneck chase with the authorities after a bank heist turned awfully wrong.
Director-producer Michael Bay helms Ambulance, who is also known for bringing unprecedented cinematic experience with blockbuster films such as Transformers, A Quiet Place and 6 Underground.
In his latest movie Ambulance, the filmmaker pits the characters under a series of extreme situations when Gyllenhaal’s character Danny, a career criminal plans the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles’ history. At the same time, Danny’s brother Will, played by Abdul- Mateen II is trying to raise money for his wife’s medical bills and desperately asks Danny as his last resort.
Confident of his plan, Danny takes Will to be his designated driver and most trusted ally in what could be the last and most dangerous heist he will take on. Soon enough, with all crew, vehicles and weapons in place, Danny’s team sets out in stealth for the 32-million-dollar bank theft in broad daylight.
But unforeseen incidents derail their plan that resulted in an all-out battle of brawn and wits against the police force, the desperate brothers soon encounter an ambulance driven by Cam Thompson (Gonzalez) with a wounded cop. Escaping a massive and merciless hunt from the authorities, Danny and Will execute the craziest of escapes while trying to keep the injured hostage cop safe and alive.
Ambulance’s screenplay is by Chris Fedak (Prodigal Son, Chuck), based on the original story and screenplay for the 2005 Danish thriller Ambulancen by Laurits Munch-Petersen and Lars Andreas Pedersen.
A Universal Pictures International release, Ambulance runs in Philippine cinemas (nationwide) starting Mar. 16, ahead of US release.
