The classic Japanese action thriller Bullet Train is getting a new Blu-ray release in the UK from Eureka.
Not to be confused with the recent movie starring Brad Pitt, Bullet Train stars Ken Takakura as a mad bomber who plants a device on a high-speed Japanese train, programmed to detonate if the train’s speed drops below 80 kilometres per hour. The train’s conductor (Sonny Chiba) must keep the train moving whilst the police track the madman down.
Most well-known for inspiring the 1994 Hollywood blockbuster Speed, The Bullet Train is a remarkably tense thriller from director Junya Satō, and Eureka Classics is proud to present it in this definitive edition for its UK debut on Blu-ray, from a 2K restoration of the original film elements.
