Hollywood legend Brad Pitt stars as a retired assassin who is pulled back into the violent life when he is hired to deliver a briefcase from a bullet train travelling from Tokyo to Kyoto.
David Leitch, Brad Pitt, and the rest of the stars who make up the ensemble cast in this movie make it one of the most memorable action flicks of 2022.
The first trailer of Bullet Train did not pique my interest and I only decided to see it because of Brad Pitt (the dude has a way of making most movies he appears in awesome).
A few minutes into it and I was already regretting being in the cinema as the exposition on some of the characters almost muddled things up.
A few minutes after the above, things became clearer, kicked up a notch, accelerated and went full throttle, sending me into an ecstasy of non-stop entertainment.
The plot is brilliantly written and every character brings a new unique input to the overall progression of events as they unfold.
Director David Leitch (known for the first John Wick film) fuses style with an engrossing storyline, spectacular action and a mind-blowing finale to get you so involved in this fantastic feature that nothing else matters.
Brad Pitt is amazing as usual and all the other supporting actors bring flair and wonderful acting chops to what becomes a dream come true for action lovers.
The antagonist was really made to be as scary as possible and the myth was only reduced when he was finally unveiled.
As for the action scenes, I found them quite enjoyable even though some of the punches and kicks obviously don't land in a few sequences.
The sound is perfect and the special effects are out of this world.
All in all, I say Bullet Train blew me completely away, taking me to places that I never expected it to. It's a genuine crowd pleaser for sure.
