It’s Agatha Christie crossed with "Euphoria," and mostly works as both a slasher murder mystery and a drug/alcohol-fueled Gen Z soap opera.

There’s a time and a place for mayhem, and that’s essentially what "Bullet Train" is: two hours of fights, carnage, and witty repartee.

Director: B.J. Novak
Cast: B.J. Novak, Boyd Holbrook, Ashton Kutcher, Issa Rae, J. Smith-Cameron, Melissa Chambers, Lio Tipton

Flawed but fresh, Novak's feature got me to laugh with him and at him while taking the story seriously and becoming involved in its quirks and twists.

It might be fair to argue that Shephard overreaches but there’s something bracing and fresh about throwing caution to the wind the way she does.

Those who see "Nope" might not get exactly what they’re expecting but they may enjoy it anyway.

It's not without flaws but it draws the viewer into its specific time and place and offers an engaging two-hour escape into the life of a memorable individual.

Has a free-spirited sense of fun and mischief that allows the viewer to uncover something more enjoyable than the monotonous sameness of the CGI overload.

We know what the Minions are and they deliver no less (or more) than we expect from them.

At times frustrating and at times exuberant, the movie is effective in capturing both the triumph and tragedy of the title character’s life.

Brings back memories of when “horror” meant more than an assembled sequence of shocks and blood-soaked cliches.
