The Ambulance from 1990 is an action-thriller directed by Larry Cohen and starring Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones, and Megan Gallagher. The movie tells the story of Josh Baker (Eric Roberts), a comic book artist who falls in love with a woman named Cheryl (Janine Turner). One day, Cheryl suddenly disappears, and Josh, desperate to find her, begins his own investigation. However, things take a dangerous turn when Josh himself gets kidnapped.

The movie begins with Josh walking around the city and noticing a beautiful young woman named Cheryl getting into an ambulance. Later, he sees the same ambulance speeding away with no siren and no lights. Josh, curious about what's going on, decides to follow the ambulance and finds out that Cheryl has been taken to a hospital. However, when Josh arrives at the hospital, he's told that Cheryl has been checked out and left already.

When Josh tries to leave, he collapses and gets sent to the same hospital where Cheryl was taken. While he's in the hospital, he realizes that he's not the only person who's disappeared after getting into the mysterious ambulance. Josh teams up with Lt. Spencer (James Earl Jones) and two ambulance drivers, Elias (Red Buttons) and Frank (Eric Braeden), to track down the ambulance and find out what's happening to the people who are being taken.

As Josh and his new allies work to unravel the mystery, they discover that the people who are being taken are being used for medical experiments. The experiments are being performed by a mad scientist named Dr. Nable (James Dixon), who has developed a virus that attacks people's adrenal glands and leaves them in a catatonic state. Dr. Nable is hoping to use the virus to create an army of super-soldiers who are immune to pain and fear.

Josh, Lt. Spencer, and the two ambulance drivers are in a race against time to find Cheryl and the other missing people before it's too late. They encounter a series of obstacles and challenges along the way, including a car chase, a shootout, and a fight on the roof of a skyscraper. Eventually, they track down the ambulance and engage in a final showdown with Dr. Nable and his henchmen.

Overall, The Ambulance is an exciting and suspenseful movie that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats from beginning to end. Eric Roberts gives a compelling performance as Josh, and James Earl Jones is outstanding as Lt. Spencer. The movie also features some impressive action sequences and a unique premise that sets it apart from other films of its genre. If you're a fan of action-thrillers, The Ambulance is definitely worth checking out.
