(Short) Movie Review: Bullet Train (2022)

Let this be a lesson in the toxicity of anger.

-Ladybug-

Bullet Train is exactly the movie you should watch if you want to see great casting and acting, laughing when you shouldn’t (in reality it would be a serious time), and a good story up until the very end. I read some of the criticisms of this movie. I didn’t agree with most of the critics because if you pick apart something so much that nothing is left, then you’re missing the point. I understand there’s a need to be as objective as you can be when a critic and they serve a purpose in any artistic form, but there’s a downside to it as well (as I noted above). There was also criticism of the casting choices, but from a purely entertainment standpoint, I thought it lent well to the story. I enjoyed watching the varied five assassins trying to find out why they were together on a bullet train and all the fighting action among them until they had no choice to make allies. The cast includes Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, Benito A. Martínez Ocasio, Sandra Bullock, Zazie Beetz, Logan Lerman, Masi Oka, and Karen Fukuhara. Bullet Train is 2 hours 7 minutes and rated R.

I give Bullet Train FOUR FINGERS at 90%.
