(Short) Movie Review: Bullet Train (2022)

Let this be a lesson in the toxicity of anger.


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%.
