The best thing about this movie is the humor. The audience laughed countless times. The story is creative. It’s a rare action/mystery movie. Believe me, a lot happens early in the movie that doesn’t always mean what you think it means, like in a mystery movie. So try to pay close attention to details.

The fight/action scenes aren’t anything spectacular, but the scenes are filmed in creative ways. I really like that the fight scenes also involve action. It isn’t like a boring action movie where the characters stop talking as soon as a fight begins. In this movie the dialog continues all through the fight which provides some of the best humor in the movie.

The movie breaks the 4th wall a few times in really fun ways. Speaking of which, there are also some hilarious cameos.

If I have one negative critique it’s that there are a lot of people with accents in the movie and sometimes it’s hard to understand what they say. I was totally lost in some of the lines between the brothers. I guess I just need more exposure to the British accent. (Hmmm, since it’s my job to write movie reviews then maybe I can make a trip to the UK completely tax deductible?!?!?!)

Grade: B

About The Peetimes: I always say, “Mysteries are the hardest movies to do Peetimes for.” While Bullet Train doesn’t look like a mystery, it kind of is. I really think the 1st Peetime is the best. It’s one long scene that is easy to summarize. The other Peetimes have numerous scenes in them.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Bullet Train.

    I swear I am going to have to open a RunPee B&B!

    Anyway, just in case, I’m going to a subtitled showing next week.

    Yes! For as much as I watch British murder mysteries on TV, I also had a hard time understanding a lot of the lines — especially at the beginning as you’re settling into the vibe. It was more the quick deliveries and mumbled lines than accents, but just the same, my sister looked at me and laughed: Where’s the closed caption?! Hahaha
    All that said, I gave it a higher grade than you. Either the laughs far outweighed the negatives or it was the Brad Pitt Effect. It was great fun! 😀

    LOL, I’m glad it’s not just me. 🙂

    You’re right. Some of the lines were lost in mumbles not accent. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. I’m going to see it again with my wife tomorrow. I wonder if I’ll like it more or less after the second viewing.

  • Terri

    I look forward to hearing your wife’s review!

    I turned my brain off and it was a good ride for me. My wife liked it as well. We both agreed it would have made more sense to take 20 minutes or so out of the film and “tighten it up” a bit. If you are going to go bonkers, anything-goes, total chaos…you might as well cut the movie that way throughout once the character exposition is over. I do get why some are not going to like this movie. These kind of movies “land” on people in different ways. Made me think of the Kingsman: Secret Service and Golden Circle movies…people will probably either love or hate this movie.

    You’re right. This wasn’t a “brain engaging” movie. Just roll with it. 🙂

    I did like the juxtaposition of Ladybug/Pitt who thought he had nothing but bad luck and the Prince/young girl who thought she had nothing but good luck.

    And I agree that the last third of the movie felt like it dragged out a bit.
