Review: Bullet Train
Ladybug (Brat Pitt) is bestowed with that unfortunate code name as he's about to do what he thinks will be a simple "snatch and go" job aboard Japan's bullet train. He soon realizes he's not the only one after that bounty.
I can't said I had much of an opinion on Bullet Train. The trailers looked fun enough, and it's full of actors I enjoy, but it never did make my "must see" list. Clearly I'm a clown because this movie was awesome.
Know what you're in for. It's goofy as hell, occasionally gory, and feels an awful lot like a Guy Richie movie at times. I had so much fun watching it. Most of that is due to Pitt and Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry, who play a pair of British assassins also aboard the bullet train. Their banter is absolutely hilarious and I would watch hours upon hours of their adventures. I wasn't expecting to laugh at this nearly as much as I did.
I daresay I had about as much fun with this as I did Top Gun: Maverick, which is saying something. This movie definitely isn't perfect, and the story it weaves together does get a bit out of hand at times, but I had a great time at the movies and what more could I really ask for?
So is this for you? If you're in the mood for something silly with a ton of charismatic actors, then go check this out. Be ready for some fun cameos too.
