#BulletTrain is not as bad as the critics say it is, it’s actually quite colorful, stylized, and enjoyable, as long as you go into knowing it’s pure popcorn fun, referencing Japanese cinema, Tarantino, and a little bit of the Dude from the Big Lebowski.
All the supporting characters and assassins shine, especially (surprisingly) #BadBunny as The Wolf. His flashback origin of moving up in the cartel ranks is one of the best parts of the movie. #BradPitt is a loveable goofball of a contractor on a snatch and grab job, fresh out of therapy, waxing philosophical about life. Although I would’ve liked to see in a little bit more of his backstory. #aarontaylorjohnson & #briantyreehenry as killer brothers Tangerine & Lemon steal the show, they are very endearing, would love a whole movie just about them.
You’ve basically seen this movie before, but it’s just fresh enough with different players (some cool cameos) to keep it exciting. It can seem a little generic at times. Director #DavidLeitch who previously made #AtomicBlonde, #HobbsAndShaw, and #Deadpool2, knows how to create captivating thrills on screen. You see most of the twists and turns coming, but that’s ok, if you’re a fan of early 2000s action films, this should be a nice throwback. If you’re critical of the plot, you won’t enjoy this very much.
