“I canu0026#39;t remember the last time I saw a film as full on as u0026#39;Bullet Trainu0026#39;. It is two hours of relentless action. Itu0026#39;s actually a little exhausting to watch (it didnu0026#39;t help that the theatre I saw it in was set to about 30 degrees Celsius – but thatu0026#39;s a different matter) – in a good way though.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a very stylishly made film. It looks terrific. The acting is great and all the characters are very polished and cool as you would expect in a film about assassins. The train itself is an interesting setting too. Itu0026#39;s technically a single-setting film but it never feels like it. The film moves so fast you feel like you are darting from country to country.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would say the one let down of the film was how little of the humour landed. Time and again there was an obvious attempt at a joke and I just didnu0026#39;t find even a smile coming to my face. There are some laughs along the way, but the hit to miss ratio is way off.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a lot of fun this movie though regardless. There are endless cameos and twists and unexpected moments. The film certainly keeps you on your toes. 7/10.”
