Review curated by Ilaria Berlingeri
With Bullet Train, David Leitch proves he can handle action and humor with skillgiving us a spectacular toy and good entertainment.
A bit’ Deadpoola bit’ John Wick and very Tarantino, Bullet Train is a film that applies above all to the frenetic and stylized action sceneswhich often compensate for a script that is not always well calibrated.
The film, however, certainly does not have the ambition of wanting to be different from what it appears: it is evident, in fact, that its main purpose is to entertain the viewer by exploiting the hyperactive style and cartoon violence. Just as it is clear that Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and the rest of the cast have a lot of fun wallowing in the ranks of this crazy and hyperdynamic story.
Sure, the characters are two-dimensional, the plot is unnecessarily convoluted, the dialogues are often weak, and the duration is exaggerated, but Bullet Train is a film that can be watched with pleasure, especially thanks to the skilful editing and inventive and excellently choreographed combat sequences.
A nice burst of energy for a hot summer evening, between hallway and a few laughs.
