The fastest train in human history will be leaving on its maiden voyage, and slowing down will soon no longer be an option. Because a mysterious caller informs that there is a bomb on board. If the train slows down to more than 320 km/h, it will explode. The passengers on board quickly pull together to find and defuse the bomb. But time is of the essence, because by the time the train reaches its destination in San Francisco, there will be no way to keep up the speed. And before the train enters the metropolis and endangers millions of other lives, the government will shoot it down with specially launched Air Force fighter jets anyway.
“Bullet Train Down” was adapted to the current movie “Bullet Train” produced, just like Asylum always likes to release cheap films that go with current cinema blockbusters. Often the content is also based on the role models, but this time you may not have felt like reading the novel about the actioner with Brad Pitt or you were simply poorly informed:
The story is actually more of a copy of the Japanese 1970s actioner “Panic in the Tokyo Express”, which is known in the USA as “The Bullet Trainappeared. The Japanese action thriller is considered a major inspiration for the Hollywood hit “Speed” starring Keanu Reeves. But the scenario that something must not go below a certain limit because otherwise a bomb will explode is something that Asylum likes to use anyway.
In the end, the own “Top Gun 2” mockbuster “Top Gunner 2” superimposed this story. There it is an airplane that must not fly below a certain altitude, otherwise it will explode. that in “Bullet Train Down” fighter jets are now also used, could therefore also follow a cost logic.
At least the relevant scene in the “Bullet Train Down trailer exactly to footage from Top Gunner 2. It is certainly not improbable that Asylum simply – probably not filmed itself anyway, but bought (so-called. Stock footage) – used the material again, i.e. recycled it.
The use of the jets is commanded in the trailer by Tom Sizemore – his involvement also follows a fixed Asylum pattern. Part of the cast is almost always an old Hollywood hero, here Sizemore, known from films such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, The Relic and True Romance, who has been has graced some Asylum films.
