Vin Diesel's highly-anticipated Valiant superhero movie 'Bloodshot' is just around the corner and it's easily one of the most fun action movies that has come out this year. Early reactions for the movie are already pouring in and the overall consensus seems to be highly positive. 

'Bloodshot' has a 79% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes but a meager 35% on the Tomatometer, which is understandable because the movie isn't exactly a masterpiece of filmmaking but the high-intensity action and great characters really seem to have resonated with the audience.

Quite a few early viewers have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions about the movie and they all seem to agree that it's a fun watch. 

One fan tweeted, "@SamHeughan Just got home from seeing @Bloodshot - it was so awesome! Loved the storyline, and all of the characters/actors. I’m a little biased, of course, you were my favorite. So proud of you!!! Go see it, everyone!!!!!!"

"I just saw the Bloodshot Movie with my son & we both enjoyed it!" Another viewer wrote. "Great special effects and awesome actors. I especially liked that cute, cocky, gum-smacking villain soldier Jimmy Dalton."

"@vindiesel My Friend @Aulyver_Shine and I just saw #BloodshotMovie and we loved it," another fan tweeted, adding, "I know it's a terrible time to release a movie, and I hope reviewers loved it. But no matter what, we had a blast and want so much more. Also, great set up for fast 9."

"So #Bloodshot wasn’t as bad as I thought," another early viewer commented. "Never understood how a script can be bad with good source material. An R rating would’ve HELPED. @LamorneMorris is a STAR! Easily the best part of the whole movie. VFX team did a great job."

'Bloodshot' will release in theaters on March 13. You can check out our spoiler-free review of the movie here.
