Bullet Train (2022)

6.5 out of 10 stars

Film falls short of making to the last stop


Brad Pitt stars in this action packed film as one of five assassins aboard a Japanese bullet train who are after something very important contained in a briefcase. It's a wild ride with several stories that are intertwined. I really liked Tangerine and Lemon, our cockney friends, who bring comedic relief to the movie. Who doesn't like Thomas the Train and how relevant he is to everything in our lives?

For some reason the movie just didn't do it for me. It fell short. I think the characters are the cliché types that we have seen time and time again. There is no depth to them. It's a movie where are all the best bits are in the trailer.

Great action without a lot of substance.

Watch this film if you have a few hours to kill. Again it's not horrible. Popcorn munching flick that has some okay moments.
