Bullet Train (2022)

This is a mixed bag if I’ve ever smelled one. I liked the actors and performances. I hated the direction and pacing. Maybe I have different tastes from the dumb hicks in the audience, but while they were lapping this schlock up I just wanted to catch the next train.

Known actors in an ensemble film is a formula that has worked for Hollywood many times before, and the result is usually a profitable product that entertains through sheer force of talent. This film is no exception…for some people. For me, it highlights how “exceptional” its audience is.

The movie was too long, the story was too random and told with an over-the-top tone, and I didn’t like it. I have nothing more to say about the film.
