Movie Review: Bullet Train
Full of excitement, emotions, and comedy, Bullet Train is an adrenaline rush from start to finish. This is a thrill ride, unlike most action films in the last couple of years.
Ladybug is an unlucky assassin who’s determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs has gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans as his latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe — all with connected yet conflicting objectives — on the world’s fastest train.
Taking inspiration from films like Snatch (2000), Kill Bill (2003) and Smokin’ Aces (2006), this film is full of over the top action, witty one liners, and an ensemble of A-list actors, lead by Brad Pitt. The film also has a “whodunnit” aspect, just on a train adding to the excitement for Brad Pitt’s character, who spends the majority of the film just wanting to leave the train.
The perfect film for anyone looking for their action and/or comedy fix. If you’re looking for a fun experience at the movies, this is for you. The film is very graphic with violence, but done in a comedic, over the top way. But graphic nonetheless. Appropriate age for this film is most certainly 17 or up. Bullet Train is Rated R for strong bloody violence, pervasive language, and brief sexuality.
