A fast pace blast through Japan with plenty of action and humour.
Ladybug (Brad Pitt) is an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails.
Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug’s 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.
The end of the line is just the beginning in this non-stop thrill-ride through modern-day Japan.
Bullet Train is visually amazing.
The Japanese background is cool in this film and it makes the movie stand out from the usual American Cities we see in movies.
Brad Pitt gives a terrific lead performance, completely unafraid to make fun of himself whilst still being a capable action star.
The standouts of the film with their perfect chemistry and great humour are Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry.
The premise of the film is basic, the cast is solid, the characters are excellent including mini side characters.
The humour has a few misses but generally it is a pretty funny movie throughout, they also pay off everything that is set up along the way which makes it a satisfying watch.
In Bullet Train you get a couple of really big cameos but I am not saying who.
Bullet Train is one of the most thrilling movies that I have seen this year so far and from start to finish you will be on the edge of your seat. It’s also very funny.
Also, if you are yet to see it, stay through the credits as it does tie up one or two of those loose ends.
My Rating: 8/10
