“Bullet Train”/Bullet Train
USA, 2022, action, crime, thriller
Theme: he who laughs last laughs
Rating by movie- teatr.ua: 8.8 /10
Premiering: August 11
Cast: Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Zazie Beetz
If you miss Brad Pitt – then you have to watch this $85 million crime action, where the actor selflessly and inventively fights for an hour and a half. The director of the film is David Leitch, who directed “Deadpool 2” and “John Wick”, so they won't spare the movie blood.
This tape is a free adaptation of the best-selling crime novel by Japanese writer Kataro Isaki “Killer Train”. Where everything seems to be slightly absurd for the European eye, but at the same time it is extremely logical. According to the plot, five killers find themselves on a high-speed train – a shinkansen. One is a loser killer, the other is a professional killer in the past, and now an alcoholic, the third is a teenage psychopath … All of them are connected by the leader of a large criminal group. Someone got into the car on his orders, someone – to interfere with his plans, and someone – to take revenge.
If anything, Brad Pitt plays this one – “the most unfortunate killer in the world”, so named because his whole life is a series of troubles. At the same time, he evokes sympathy more than other heroes, which can already be seen in the trailer. All because this is the perfect role for Pitt.
