The Paramedic [2020] ★★

In this generic Spanish thriller, Mario Casas plays a paramedic who, after a tragic accident that left him paralyzed, begins to suspect that his girlfriend is cheating on him. This is a setup for a cat and mouse game (think Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”, with Casas wheelchair bound), that sadly leads nowhere. Casas is menacing enough, and the film has some chilling moments, especially early on. But halfway through, it was obvious where the story was headed, and I lost interest as a result. Still, if you’re browsing Netflix for something that doesn’t require a lot of attention, “The Paramedic” might be the title for you. But you should know that it’s nothing that you haven’t seen before.
