To discuss Michael Bay and the talent he has in realising the action Hollywood blockbuster is a fine line between joining those who praise the ground he walks and annoying saner individuals who are still upset with Transformers. The joke is on both parties though, because if anything, Ambulance certainly proves Bay has perfected his own formula. His work has always fit the bill for those looking for popcorn explosions but also those looking for deeper, gratifying sensibilities. Pain & Gain was not that long ago, and it provides a perfect example of how Bay has perfected the budget to meaning ratio. Enough for all audiences. Ambulance is another bold participation in that balance but stretches itself thin in places.
