Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Eiza Gonzalez and director Michael Bay sat down with STACK to discuss their explosive new action flick, Ambulance.
A callback to the brand of action movies made in the eighties and nineties that hit the screen with maximum impact, Ambulance involves a bank heist gone wrong and plays out like the hyperactive child of Reservoir Dogs and Speed.
“Over one day across the streets of L.A., three lives will change forever. Decorated veteran Will Sharp (Abdul-Mateen II), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t — his adoptive brother Danny (Gyllenhaal). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no. But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (González) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.”
