Bullet Train – movie review.

Bullet train is as the name suggest is a fast-paced action movie. Directed by David Leitch who directed Deadpool has brought a lot of adrenaline-pumping action to the big screen combined with an elaborate dash of comedy. The movie is set on a bullet train ( I mean wasn’t that obvious) which is traveling from Tokyo to Kyoto in Japan. The train entertains a few assassins who go head to head to complete their missions which are connected to each other. However, the protagonist of the story is the unlucky Ladybug played by the ever magnificent Brad Pitt who doesn’t disappoint in this movie with his nonchalant sense of humor and action but also has no idea why is he even on the train makes it much better. The acting performances that really caught my eye were that of Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry), their chemistry in this movie was fine-tuned bringing a sense of synchronization to the delivery of their lines and their action sequences. The role of Prince played by Joey King was also brilliant to watch as she showed her acting capacity in this antagonistic role. The movie was overall very colorful but extremely fast-paced keeping you at the edge of your seats, therefore make sure you don’t lose focus during this movie. A small warning is that the movie contains quite a bit of gore making it somewhat unwatchable for the faint-hearted. Bullet train can be considered a good watch as it doesn’t contain a very deep plot and also is not connected to a million other movies (you know the movies I am talking about) but there is still one post-credit scene but no end credit scenes. 

The Experience

Scope cinemas is usually my preferred escape from reality. After a long time, I got to watch the movie in one of their smaller halls (Screen 6) which is a 2D screen but don’t let that fool you as the experience is never dampened even at the change of screens. The ever-luscious seats remain the same with the brilliant picture and sound quality. The staff at Scope is also very helpful as I was a bit late to the movie so my friends picked up the ticket and placed it at the counter with my name and the staff made sure there was no hassle and ushered me to the screen making sure I don’t miss more of the movie. I always prefer a movie at scope with their reasonable ticket prices and their brilliant service as their ticket booking is also quite efficient and the vast number of screening times make it available even on the busiest days.

The snack bar

Popcorn is my go-to movie snack and I was a bit hopeless after Scope discontinued the Nacho Mexican popcorn but they have come up with a brilliant alternative by introducing the peri – peri popcorn which is spicy and tangy and packs a brilliant punch making the movie-going experience even better. The Hot Kitchen at Scope also provides discounts for Scope Privilege customers therefore make sure you get your Scope Membership as soon as possible if you are a frequent movie goer.


Bullet train was a breath of fresh air compared to many movies that came out this year with huge theatrical releases except for Top Gun. The ratings for the movie don’t do it any justice therefore make sure you watch the movie at Scope Cinemas to enjoy it better.
