R | | Drama, Thriller
Haunted by the patients he failed to save, an extremely burned-out Manhattan ambulance paramedic fights to maintain his sanity over three fraught and turbulent nights.
Nicolas Cage said that what originally attracted him to Bringing Out the Dead was the opportunity to work with Martin Scorsese.
Look up, Frank. Full moon. The blood's gonna run tonight. I can feel it. Our mission: to save lives.
Frank Pierce: Our mission is coffee, Tom. A shot of the bull, Puerto Rican espresso.
Tom Wall: Ten-four. El Toro de Oro! Blast off!
When Marcus and Frank are responding to I.B. Bangin's over-dose, they are first shown responding in a van-type ambulance, then the next shot shows them in a box-type, then back to the van-type on arrival.
