Bullet Train (English) Movie Review


In this Bullet Train English Movie Review, we take a closer look at the acclaimed film starring Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, Joey King, and David Leitch. We also take a look at the characters of the film, which includes a few non-Japanese characters. Although some of the characters are portrayed as debauched or honorable, they are actually just props in the drama. Despite this, we are still able to appreciate their performance and their characters.

Bullet Train

Brad Pitt

“Brad Pitt in Bullet Train English” is a spirited film based on the Japanese bestseller of the same name. While Pitt is a star, the film is surprisingly flawed. Is this a case of the “Bad Brad” syndrome? If so, this review is for you. Brad Pitt isn’t the only bad actor in this movie, as many others agree. James Franco and Diane Keaton also contribute to the film’s poor review.

Sandra Bullock

‘Bullet Train’ stars Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock as a pair of assassins who are teamed up to steal a briefcase from a bullet train. The film’s trailer reveals the characters’ relationship. Ladybug is a former assassin who sought a therapist after experiencing a string of bad jobs. She is now back on the job, and she’s assigned to a new handler (Sandra Bullock). Her new codename is Ladybug, and she has a history of mishaps on the job, including a recent run-in with a fellow hitman.

Joey King

This film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the assassin Tangerine, alongside Brian Tyree Henry and Andrew Koji as two other assassins. It follows the life of one of the assassins, Joey King, who hides a series of deadly secrets and moves under her schoolgirl uniform. While the film aims for sideways erudition, it comes up short.

David Leitch

Bullet Train is a fast-paced action thriller that has a lot of heart, and many of its plot mechanisms are jumbled and strained. But director David Leitch makes the most of the film’s frantic pace and fast-talking dialogue. Few directors handle the latter as well, and this film is an early showcase for the director’s signature style. The film’s sense of joy and freedom are also evident in its frantic pace and unrelenting action.

David Olkewicz

A bafflingly funny film, “Bullet Train” has a complex and complicated storyline. It is based on a novel by Kotaro Isaka, which was originally published as Maria Beetle in Japan and released in English as Bullet Train. Leitch masterfully switches the tracks to highlight connections and baggage. Each character is on a journey to the same destination, but they don’t see each other for what they are. The film’s atypical premise and the rampant violence can obscure this symbolism.

David Taylor-Johnson

In this bullet-train-themed movie, David Taylor-Johnson and Tom Henry star as brothers whose love lives are torn apart by a mysterious and out-of-this-world creature. The film is full of in-jokes, winking asides, and cameos, and it’s hard not to feel the movie’s wacky vibe. While Bullet Train is a late-summer melodrama, it’s also full of slick VFX animation and an overall studio movie feel.

Zak Olkewicz

Bullet Train is a largely forgettable movie. While it is based on a novel by Kotaro Isaka, Zak Olkewicz’s screenplay and direction fall flat. It feels like a mash-up of genres, with a smart-alecky tone and a star striving for a different role. The movie’s plot is also laden with clich├ęs, such as the henchmen threatening Ladybug and demanding her briefcase, which serves as the McGuffin in the movie.
