Kevin Cormier’s review published on Letterboxd:
Brad Pitt plays code name Ladybug a hired assassin filling in on a relatively simple job in Japan to retrieve a briefcase on the bullet train. Simple enough except that the train is littered with assassins with their own orders which all seem to be connected.
I really was entertained by this film. The characters and dialogue were somewhat reminiscent of old Guy Ritchie films. The action is impressive and brutal, the dialogue is witty but not to a point where everyone is wisecracking. It’s slightly a bit too long at just over two hours, but it’s hardly noticeable as it’s very well done and completely fun.
Aaron Taylor Johnson, Joey King and Brian Tyree Henry costar.
