On Friday, March 13, Vin Diesel will portray the titular hero in BLOODSHOT, and it looks like a return to form for the self-affirmed sci-fi geek/action hero. Based on the Valiant Comics series of the same name, BLOODSHOT centers on Ray Garrison (Diesel), a solider who is murdered along with his wife, only to be resurrected in the name of vengeance.
Whether you’re a long-standing fan of Diesel’s work or you’re looking for a crash course in his best roles to date, we’ve got you covered as we’ve put together the perfect Vin Diesel triple feature! These three movies will give you a pretty succinct portrait of the man, his projects and his skills as a versatile actor in all sorts of films.
The best part is, you can rent or buy each of these movies through the convenience of AMC Theatres On Demand! With that in mind, here’s the trio of titanic titles you should consider before you see BLOODSHOT this weekend.
Saving Private Ryan
One of Diesel's first major roles in a Hollywood film, director Steven Spielberg’s SAVING PRIVATE RYAN gave us a glimpse into the range of Diesel’s acting talents. While the role of Private Caparzo is part of an ensemble supporting Tom Hanks’s iconic portrayal of Captain Miller, Diesel gets a moment to shine in this World War II drama about saving one man, against all odds. It was a pretty big start to what has become a blockbuster career for Vin Diesel.
When you think of Vin Diesel, there’s probably a handful of franchises that come to mind. There’s his work in the XXX franchise, his lead in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS films, and then there are the chronicles of his memorable character Riddick. That last series started with Diesel’s well-traveled antihero feeling more like a villain reluctantly helping others for his own survival in PITCH BLACK. The role would serve as one of the largest leaps in his career.
The Fate of the Furious
All of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS films are available on AMC Theatres On Demand! But perhaps the most important entry in the saga of Dominic Toretto is his most recent film, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, in which Dom does the unthinkable and betrays everyone he knows and loves.
Enjoy these Vin Diesel movies now through AMC Theatres On Demand, and then get your tickets for his next hit, BLOODSHOT.
