Seriously exciting and dynamic film.
14 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most underrated suspense comedy of it time, "Paramedics" not only delivers laughs, but lets us probe into the fast paced workings of a paramedics life. Suspense and realistic accuracy usually doesn't yield good comedy, but "Paramedics" proves the exception to the rule. Director Staurt Margolin does an excellent job of combining the gritty, touch-and-go lifesaving (think "Bringing Out the Dead") with a heartfelt, aloof humor that seems to blend seamlessly into itself. For those of you who are technical nerds, have no fear! There is plenty of medical-speak spaced between heart-beating action. Whatever tickles your fancy, whether it be fierce, down to the second action, or good natured giggles, "Paramedics" has something for everyone. I highly recommend it.
