Description

The original trailer for the excellent action, thriller "Bullet Train", from 1975, with the late, great Ken Takakura (who sadly passed away last year), and the equally great Sonny Chiba. If you think "Speed" (1994) with Keanu Reeves had an original, unique plot, think again, as it essentially rips it from this film. Terrorists have placed a bomb on a Japanese Bullet Train which will automatically explode if its speed drops below 80kph, or if a ransom isn't paid. Synopsis: "Japanese action drama starring Sonny Chiba. When a deranged madman places a bomb on the Tokyo to Hataka bullet train, a bomb that will detonate if the train drops to below 80 kilometres per hour, heroic conductor Aoki (Chiba) races against time to disarm it, before it's too late. Pre-dating Speed by almost two decades, The Bullet Train is a gripping, edge of your seat thriller that as well as boasting blistering action sequences also focuses on the simmering political tensions between the civilians, the government and the suprisingly sympathetic bombers. Cult action star Sonny Chiba features as the train operator who must find the device and there's a characteristically stirring performance from Ken Takakura (dubbed the Japanese Clint Eastwood) as a bomber with a serious grudge."
