Where does Ambulance land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is Ambulance

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Anthony Papetti

Banana Meter Rating: 95%

Ambulance is pure Michael Bay mayhem (Bayhem!) A strong cast and some truly wild drone shots make this the best action film in years as well as Bay’s strongest film since Pain and Gain.

Brian Taylor

Banana Meter Rating: 60%

Ambulance has a lot of Bay brilliance as well as a good cast that even a run time that runs a little too long can’t slow this ride down

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

Bayhem at its finest, Ambulance plays out as a bank heist version of Speed. A perfect throwback to action thrillers of yesteryear and eaily the best thing that Michael Bay has made in decades, Ambulance is 100% pure adrenaline.

Brian Skutle

Banana Meter Rating: 79%

Michael Bay creates tension in one location- an ambulance between four characters- while said location is creating chaos on the streets of LA. The result is the director’s best film in ages, and a reminder that- however formulaic- action movies don’t need to be on auto pilot.

Banana Meter Rating: 85%

Ambulance puts the pedal to the metal and doesn’t take its foot off the gas for 136 minutes. The result is Absolute Bayhem.

Banana Meter Rating: 95%

Michael Bay allows his id to fully take over in a glorious celebration of fire, destruction, crime flicks, first responders and ‘Murica. It absolutely SMACKS.

Freda Cooper

Banana Meter Rating: 30%

Michael Bay meets a drone and the result is what you’d expect – his biggest, loudest and dumbest movie yet!

Steve Kosie

Banana Meter Rating: 68%

Ambulance really is the most action movie ever made. It’s the very definition of a big Hollywood action movie and as much as we can ridicule some of Bay’s other films, Ambulance is ridiculously entertaining. It’s the action movie of the year for sure.

Banana Meter Rating: 75%

Ambulance is a pure Michael Bay at it’s finest with Bombastic action, large-scale devastation and lots of overuse of certain shots and terribly written characters. But in the end this is a Michael Bay movie so you know what your getting.

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

Ambulance won’t win any awards for its screenplay or storytelling, but as a 2-hour chase sequence around LA, it works exactly as well as it should, proving to be a super fun experience and one of Michael Bay’s best movies in years.

Michael Bay’s better films on new levels of destruction!

Karen Woodham

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

You can’t deny that this is a Michael Bay movie with his signature style of direction and action, Ambulance is an all out car chase from start to finish that keep you on the edge of your seat throughout, although the film could have done with a slightly shorter run time as you find it getting a little tedious towards the end, but one thing that really stands out, besides the stunts, are the amazing drone work that just makes you say “WOW”.
