The official CinemaScore for Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot is higher than many expected.
This weekend, Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot opened with middling reviews from critics. We found Vin Diesel’s latest outing to be an absolute train wreck and would not recommend it to anyone. Audiences, on the other hand, reacted more affectionally to Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot, which is based on the Valiant comic.
CinemaScore, the industry lead in capturing opening night audience reactions to the latest films, polled those who saw Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot and the response was pretty decent. The comic book film has received a B CinemaScore which is far from the disaster many expected it to be.

Bloodshot has been reveled among comic book fans for being a throwback to the cheesy action comic book films of the early 2000’s but that still doesn’t seem to be enough for fans. While a B CinemaScore isn’t necessarily bad, most superhero films average an A CinemaScore, so Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot is definitely an outlier in all of this.
