Debating if “Bullet Train” is worth the watch? The film received mixed to positive reception from critics, including Looper’s very own Alistair Ryder, who awarded the film a 6/10 rating. “In its best moments, ‘Bullet Train’ is everything you want from a popcorn blockbuster, best experienced with your brain switched firmly in the off position — but by the time the train arrives at its destination, it’s hard not to feel that we should have exited a few stations earlier,” Ryder wrote. Audiences, however, were a bit more receptive to the film, giving it a Rotten Tomatoes audience score of 76%.
Despite the mixed reception, it’s worth watching Brad Pitt play an awkward and anxious role, something he rarely seems to do as one of Hollywood’s most prolific A-listers. “He’s definitely the chump of the story, which is really good fun to play,” Pitt said in a chat with ABC News.
