BULLET TRAIN. David Leitch, director, producer (one of three). Zak Olkewicz, script, based on the book Maria Beetle by Kôtarô Isaka.[1] David Scheunemann, production design.[2]USA/Japan: 87 North (main production) / Columbia Pictures (US Distribution; elsewhere: often Sony), 2022; see IMDb for details. [3][4]

IMDb places the film in the genres Action, Comedy, Thriller, which is correct enough and definitely correct in that BULLET TRAIN is not SF. The main site of the action, though, is the high-speed "Shinkansen" bullet-train from Tokyo to Kyoto,[5] and the action of the film makes good use of this real-world — in the world of the film — high-tech environment encompassing the cast.
