On Tuesday 2nd of August 2022 the London Mums Magazine team was invited to review Bullet Train, directed by David Leitch.
An action packed movie with a lot of violent psychopaths packed on to one train. The movie, set on a train is full of twists and comedy.
Brad Pitt plays a role of a trained assassin ‘Ladybug’, and is given orders from his handler Maria Beetle to collect a briefcase that is in the train. Little does he know that there are other trained assassins on the train with their own motives. The pairing of the brothers ‘Tangerine’ and ‘ Lemon’ is very comical.
Although this is not a Quentin Tarantino movie, it has a lot of Pulp Fiction vibes.
London Mums’ rating: 6/10.
Bullet Train has a great cast, but also a lot of violence toned down with comedy.
