Brad Pitt gets on the bullet train with Bad Bunny and Sandra Bullock and everything is fun

- Advertisement -

Tremendously funny, witty, with action, gags, black humor and plot twists even in the final credits (don’t get up early), that’s right Bullet trainthe movie in which Brad Pitt is facing bad bunny… and a lot of no less bizarre characters.

But just as the power of seduction of actor of Once upon a time… in Hollywood was tested in different films in a comedy tone -remember the somewhat forgotten Burn after readingby the Coen brothers, perhaps Brad’s best performance in a reid film?-, and here something emerges well, there is another reason why Bullet train it is a success.

Apart from the tightness of the performances of the entire cast.

is the script

Bad Bunny is The Wolf.  He had already had a small role in "Fast and Furious 9".

Bad Bunny is The Wolf. He had already had a small role in “Fast and Furious 9”.

They are the entanglements and the deceptions, but also the fairness, the fierceness and the timing of the dialogues. The characters aboard the title’s bullet train in Japan, where most of the film takes place, are either eccentric or quirky. But each one has his story, and he has a reason, a reason for the way he acts and for doing what he does.

Pitt is a killer who has been somewhat away from the action, busy going to therapy. When his boss (voice of Sandra Bullock) tells him about a new job on the phone, the criminal already has a new “name”: Ladybug, after the cows of San Antonio. He thinks he has been chased by bad luck, and you know what they say about the vaquitas of San Antonio.

"Ladybug" is the new name of the assassin who personifies Pitt, who assumes his mission in a Zen tone...

Ladybug is the protagonist of this choral black and violent comedy. He has a zen attitude that contrasts with what he should do. And as much as he is willing to talk, if possible, with his opponents or those who want to assassinate him, he must appeal to his intelligence and his muscles to get ahead.

The task seems simple. He must board the title train in Tokyo bound for Kyoto, and get a briefcase. What’s in it?

Imagine it.

And imagine that everyone wants a briefcase.

The mission doesn’t seem difficult when Ladybug finds the briefcase. It’s a matter of getting off the train at the next station.

Mistake.

The director had been Brad Pitt's stunt double in many films.

Danger awaits him, and Bullet train It will offer enough hand-to-hand combat scenes, with fists, white and firearms, some kitara -we are in Japan for a reason-, but also stuffed animals, bottles of mineral water and netbooks, and characters, as we said… Singular.

There are two assassins on board – well, there may be more – who are called twins and who go by the names of Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry, of Eternals) and Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, from Nocturnal animals), who have to transport the famous briefcase and a young man. And a girl dressed as a schoolgirl (Joey King), from Ramona and Beezuswith Selena Gomez, and The Act), And at some point El Lobo (Bad Bunny) will come aboard, with a pending account with… They’ll find out.

And many more, which would be boring to count and more fun to discover on the screen.

At times, Bullet train reminds of the best Guy Ritchie, the one with Snatch: Pigs and Diamonds or the little sight rocknrolla. Director David Leitch (Dead Pool 2) has two peculiarities. He was a stunt double for Pitt in many films, from The fight Club a Troyand directed, although he does not appear in the credits, the first of Keanu Reeves as John Wick. But he trusted screenwriter Zak Olkewicz, who had a not too reliable background: the street of terror part 2 (2021) to adapt the novel by Kôtarô Isaka. And yes, it turned out perfect.

There are fist fights, knives, netbooks, stuffed animals and, yes, kitara.

The said. It’s the lines of dialogue, the things you think are white that turn out to be black, the tripping, the gags, the well-shot fights. All of this makes Bullet train a show to enjoy in the cinema, without ever stepping on the brake and yes the accelerator.
