The Ambulance (1990) Eric Roberts

The screenplay is very clever, the dialogues are well written and there isn't a dull moment in the entire movie. 'The Ambulance' isn't a horror film so the deaths aren't as sadistic as in other Cohen films and there's also the lack of pungent social criticism. Still, this is a truly cool movie that deserves a wider audience. Judging by his performance here, I'd say it's unjust that Eric Roberts' c... read more

Description: This paranoid thriller begins as Eric Roberts' girlfriend (Janine Turner) is taken away in an ambulance and he can't find her. She's been taken prisoner by Eric Braeden, a crazed doctor who kidnaps people and sells their bodies for spare parts. Roberts hooks up with pretty cop Megan Gallagher to solve the mystery.

"Eric Roberts is Josh Baker, a comic book artist who tries to track down an old type mysterious ambulance where patients are picked up but never reach a hospital. This bizarre thriller is actually pretty decent with a little bit of comedy thrown in as well. A regular joke throughout the movie concerns a police detective whose face reminds them of a person called Jughead. I thought it was a great idea to have an ambulance who we rely to help us if we're ill to take us to hospital to have one go ro"

The Ambulance (1990) Eric Roberts

“The screenplay is very clever, the dialogues are well written and there isn't a dull moment in the entire movie. 'The Ambulance' isn't a horror film so the deaths aren't as sadistic as in other Cohen films and there's also the lack of pungent social criticism. Still, this is a truly cool movie that deserves a wider audience. Judging by his performance here, I'd say it's unjust that Eric Roberts' career went to waste so badly. He looks a little goofy but his lines are exhilarating and his bad-boy charisma definitely works for the character he plays. Even more amusing are the supporting roles like, for example, James Earl Jones as the weird and over-stressed copper and Red Buttons as the persistent journalist.” read more
