Bloodshot centers on a mob killer named Angelo Mortalli who enters a witness protection program. When he is betrayed by a handler, he becomes part of a secret experiment to create the ultimate killing machine. Brought back from the dead by Rising Spirit Technologies through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss, Bloodshot struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants (called Chainsaw).

The film is tonally and aesthetically influenced by high-concept sci-fi blockbusters of the late 80s, such as Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall. Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe, composed of thousands of characters embodying various genres, tones and demographic groups — ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods.

The film is a joint release by DMG Entertainment and Sony Pictures.
