Grizzled Marine Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) is shot dead during a mission but regains consciousness in Kuala Lumpur in the care of Dr Emil Harting (Guy Pearce).

The pioneering medic has brought Ray back to life using nanotechnology, augmenting the Marine's strength, agility, speed and healing capabilities on the battlefield.

Rechristened Bloodshot, Ray wages top-secret war alongside other enhanced killing machines including KT (Eiza Gonazlez) and former Navy SEAL Jimmy Dalton (Sam Heughan).

As the body count mounts, Ray experiences disorientating flashbacks to his former life.

He slowly pieces together a grand conspiracy that has robbed him of the woman he loved.
