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?!?!?!)
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.
