Wondering if Bullet Train is ok for kids and teens? Bullet Train is a violent action thriller and brought to you by the same director as Deadpool 2, so it’s not really kid friendly. Here’s what parents need to know in this Bullet Train Parents Guide.

Bullet Train Parents Guide

Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug’s latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe — all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives — on the world’s fastest train.  This group of assassins find themselves on the same bullet train in Japan and realize that they all have connected yet conflicting missions.

Bullet Train Age Rating

Bullet Train is rated R for bloody violence, strong language, and brief sexuality which means some content may not be suitable for kids under 17.

Is Bullet Train OK For Teens?

Parents, you can expect to see a lot of intense violent scenes, blood and gore, decapitations, smoking and alcohol use, and hear a lot of profanity used by some of the characters. To sum it up, Bullet Train is not kid-friendly.

Language in Bullet Train

Bullet Train has over 100 uses of profanity including many uses of f*ck, sh*t, bi*ch, damn, a**, and a**hole. There are also uses of Deity including g-ddamn. Also expect to hear crude, sexual words including d*ck, t*ts, twat, and douchebag. 

Mature Content

Bullet Train has frequent and intense violent scenes of physical combat and weapons including gun violence involving blood sprays and gore. This also includes scenes of decapitations where a head is chopped and blown off and metal bars go through heads. A character is poisoned and bleeds from his eyes.  A lot of the action is over the top and exaggerated and is not for those sensitive to violence. 

A scene shows a suicide attempt.

There is a sex scene without nudity but shows some graphic thrusting from behind between a man and woman.

Characters drink alcohol and smoke. 

Is Bullet Train Appropriate for Kids Under 17?

Bullet Train is not appropriate for tweens or kids under 17 years old due to graphic violence and language. As always, if parents are concerned with the material, I recommend screening the film first to determine whether it’s appropriate for your children.
