Bullet Train Review

Buckle up everyone, Bullet train is a ticket to a fun and crazy ride! This is one train you’d want to hop onto till the end, guaranteed to entertain you throughout your ride!

We were invited for the premiere and truly enjoyed the interactive train setup and great spots for the gram!

Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, a hitman ironically named because bad luck follows him everywhere he goes. It’s no surprise that this doesn’t change when his handler (Sandra Bullock) gives him a job turned down by another hitman, a simple mission to retrieve a briefcase onboard a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Kyoto. Things aren’t as easy as expected, as several other assassins are on board with the same objective and won’t let any obstacle get in their way.

These include the British hitmen Lemon and Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry), and the mysterious sociopath known only as The Prince (Joey King), with more getting on board as the vehicle hurtles closer to its destination.

The movie is everything you’d want from a pop-corn blockbuster movie, giving you the retro action movie vibes we all grew up watching!

The charm of Pitt and the ultimate retro action and comedy gave the movie the rush and kick needed!

Directed by David Leitch (Dead Pool 2), from a screenplay by Zak Olkewicz. Produced by Antoine Fuqua, it is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle (published in English as Bullet Train) by Kōtarō Isaka.

Brad Pitt, shows us once again that he never brings less than the best to every role. No one is better at showcasing his movie star charisma and here he plays off of it to hilarious effect. The acting in the stunt scenes is as important as the punches. As we have seen in Tarantino and some other films, countering shocking, graphic, brutality combined with a casualness can be very funny, if you’re a Tarantino or a Bruce Lee movie fan, this is surely a movie you’re going to enjoy, giving us all the retro vibes we grew up watching!

It’s been ages since I had fun watching an action movie at the cinema, the Japanese pop culture references and the cultural clashes made it even more entertaining to watch!

With a great star cast and an absolutely fun and crazy storyline, a fun movie to watch!
