Based on a Japanese novel I just done ordered because I'm too curious, Bullet Train is a wild and entertaining ride about a Tokyo-Kyoto train with various assassins pit against one another (and now I'm trying to hack the Tokaido board game to make the game's trip less relaxing). Brad Pitt plays the lead operative, a burnout trying to apply what he learned in therapy to the situation, but talking about the cast any more than that would be a spoiler. In fact, i recommend not checking out a cast list since finding out who's in it is part of the fun. Director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde) uses the novel's structure efficiently, creating little movies within the movie, without losing the film's "high-octane Agatha Christie" momentum, and stages a number of fun close-quarters battles inside the train. This is a cool, stylish, neon-drenched, neatly soundtracked action comedy filled with memorable characters and moments, and I don't know why a subset of cinephilia hated it. Me? It's totally my jam, and I'm gonna read the s#!& out of the novel when it gets here.
Fun and forgettable 7/10 quite a few inaccuracies and no murderer who uses stealth wears neckties
Loved every second! All the characterd are vuilt up and the threads all connect seamlessly. 5* humour and very innovative
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
