What is the Point of the Bullet Train?

Based on a Japanese novel by Ktar Isaka, Bullet Train takes place on a bullet train as it travels between Tokyo and Morioka with few stops along the way. There are five assassins on board, all of whom are off on separate missions. They’re all linked up, yet it hasn’t occurred to any of them yet.

Once the assassins begin to piece together the truth, they will have to fight amongst themselves to stay alive until they reach their objective and learn the truth there.

The premise promises a lot of bloody, nonstop action, and it sounds like it was inspired by the John Wick movies. The film’s final rating will be intriguing to observe.

While it seems likely that the film will be rated R, as all of Leitch’s other films (with the exception of Hobbs & Shaw) have been given that rating, there is a remote possibility that Sony will shoot for a PG-13 rating in the hopes of attracting a younger audience.

What is the “Whitewashing” Controversy for Bullet Trains?

Given that the majority of the actors are from Western nations, Bullet Train has drawn criticism for purportedly “whitewashing” Japanese culture.

Although Ktar Isaka originally intended for a number of the characters, including Brad Pitt and Joey King, to be Japanese, he seems to be okay with the casting adjustments made for the film.

Isaka recently told The New York Times, “I don’t have any feeling of wanting others to comprehend Japanese literature or culture. Not that I am really knowledgeable about Japan, either.

Isaka added that he expects that this English-language version of Bullet Train will introduce English-speaking fans to his several best-selling works in his own Japan.

Wrap Up

On November 16, 2020, production on Bullet Train began in the Greater Los Angeles Area. The shoot was expected to go on until March of 2021.

It may seem odd that a movie set in Japan was actually shot in Los Angeles, but the continuing pandemic likely prevented them from shooting there.
