Continue reading for a thorough analysis to determine whether or not Bullet Train is time well spent.

Movie Verdict

We are usually interested in watching films that take place on trains, and we were especially enthralled with the extremely gripping production Train to Bhushan. Although it does an excellent job of creating the scenario for its protagonist, Bullet Train drags in the middle and is more of a comedy than a thriller.

Despite having an intriguing plot, entertaining scenes, and creative action sequences, director David Leitch was unable to keep audiences engaged for the duration of the entire movie. The plot of the world’s best assassins snatching a bag may seem absurd at first, but it soon becomes riveting as the spectator witnesses the conflict. The movie includes some funny parts that are skillfully done.

Brad Pitt’s portrayal of LadyBugg stands out as the film’s high point, despite Aaron Taylor having considerable material to play with and the rest of the ensemble doing excellent job.

David Leitch’s critically lauded picture Dead Pool partially succeeded in engrossing the audience; while the story is excellent, the execution was subpar, and the emotional message didn’t quite hit home as it should have.

Technically speaking, director of photography Jonathan Sela and the rest of the crew did a fantastic job on Bullet Train. Editor Elisabet Ronaldsdottir ought to have cut some of the more repetitive early scenes, and Dominic Lewis’s score should have been stronger.

In conclusion, because it’s a lot of fun and features a few intense parts, Bullet Train is a terrific film for aficionados of the action genre.

Rating: 3.5/5
