Here is the official synopsis for Bloodshot:
After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison (played by Vin Diesel) is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – “Bloodshot.” As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both he and his beautiful wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he thought.
Directed by Dave Wilson from a script written by Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer, Bloodshot stars Vin Diesel, Sam Heughan, Guy Pearce, Eiza González, Toby Kebbell, Talulah Riley, Alex Hernandez, Lamorne Morris and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson.
