Great movie, but LOTS of blood and gore.

There is a great deal of humor, but parents should know this is in the style of Tarantino or Guy Ritchie. Gratuitous and over-the-top, with body parts and blood spraying and splattering each scene.

Silly good fun! But the violence is a bit much...

Bullet Train stars Brad Pitt as a wisecracking assassin who is sent on a mission to obtain a briefcase; only it's not as simple as it seems. The film is shot beautifully and is entertainingly stylish! It's funny, but not hilarious. As for the content, it's not for young teens and DEFINITELY NOT for kids. Violence is the worst offender of the lot; there's a high body count. Gallons of blood are on display with some throat slicing, graphic stabbings, fatal gunshots, and head explosions. One man's head is completely demolished when hit by a train sign, another has a chunk of his face completely removed and it's as violent as it sounds. It's mostly played as comedic, but it is so excessive that it becomes bothersome. Profanity is overshadowed by the foul play, but is still there and is quite rough; most of them come from two characters, the "Twins." F-bombs are casually dropped and it's probably near the three digit count. Other milder terms include d**k, s***, a**hole, and more. Sexual content is brief, but extremely unnecessary; it adds nothing to the story. In the first 10 minutes, two random characters have sex with the man being behind the woman; thankfully graphic nudity is blocked by a window and it lasts two seconds. Other PG-13 scale sex references are said infrequently. There's smoking, a single drug reference, and some alcohol consumption as well. Overall, Bullet Train is a very fun time that more than entertains; although, its last 20 minutes go off the rails and isn't half as fun as the rest of the film. I'd say teens 16 and up, if they're (or you are) fine with the numbing violence and excessive profanity.

Must watch!

I just love this movie. Funny, action packed and just a brief moment of sexual content! Would recommend to anyone who’s looking for a good action movie. Plus Brad Pitt is awesome!
