Bullet Train: A Brad Pitt Staple

Bullet Train does come with some mixed-reviews, but is packed with a surplus of action!


Bullet Train is a Sony production movie that came out to theaters on August 5th, 2022. The movie stars many well-known actors like Brad Pitt (Ladybug), Joey King (Prince), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Tangerine), Bad Bunny (The Wolf), and Sandra Bullock (Maria). The movie explains to us how Ladybug is an unlucky assassin who is just trying to complete one of his missions without any trouble. However, he meets a roadblock as he finds himself in a sticky situation with many other assassins on the same trip as him. He must fight for his life from the other assassins, but the trickiest part is all of this occurs while on the fastest train in the world.

Many fans were disappointed with the actor’s portrayal of the characters and wished that the movie could have been a lot better. Many fans were complaining on social media sites like TikTok and Twitter about how these big-name actors and actresses didn’t display as good of a job as they were expecting.

The actors were impeccable in other films and shows I have watched but the plots weren’t all that. I thought there could’ve been a little bit more. But overall it was maybe a 5/10 because of the plots behind the movie.” Jessica Garvey, Sophomore. The movie got a 3.7 score rating on google with mostly 5 stars, however, there were a lot of constructive comments saying how the movie and the plot could have been better. Many fans said that the movie gave off really corny vibes and that the acting wasn’t below average.”

A lot of these actors and actresses are bigger than most yet their acting in this movie wasn’t that great. I was expecting better, especially with the reputation these actors and actresses have given us.” Kaylee Dearmas, Junior. Another issue many viewers had was that the movie was very difficult to follow, as there were many plot lines going on at once. The movie seemed to have too many things going on at once, leaving it to be a little messy and hard for the watchers to keep up with. Another factor that influenced the movie was a lot of violence and gore.

The movie is advertised to be an action-type film but many viewers said there was a bit too much blood and that it was unnecessary. “When I watched the movie, I was glued onto the screen but I was having a bit of trouble trying to keep up with everything going on. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to someone who can’t handle blood or violence well since this movie was full of it. If you don’t mind watching that type of stuff then I would say it isn’t a bad movie but I have seen better films before.” Mia Rodriguez, Junior.
