MPAA Rated R for strong and bloody violence, pervasive language, and brief sexuality.

Sex & Nudity

  • Some very brief kissing scenes between two characters
  • After being requested to do perform a favor, a man asks if it is a "sex thing." Meant for comedic effect.
  • A shot of a man and woman in bed together, clothed, pans across the screen. They are covered by bed linens. only shoulders up are seen. This same scene occurs again moments later. No sex or nudity is shown.
  • Very brief moment shown from far away of a naked man
  • A flashback is shown in which the main is shown photographing a naked man.
  • A man photographs a man and a woman during intercourse from far away, with some moaning. Brief and little detail. No Nudity is shown.
  • Very short but very graphic scene at around 4:50mins- female breasts, male nudity, thrusting from behind and loud overly fake female moans.

Violence & Gore

  • Over-the-top violence with guns and swords. Many people die bloody deaths.
  • A meat hook is stabbed through a man's throat and up out his head. Scene lasts about 3 seconds.
  • A tremendous amount of violence, blood, and gore. While executed with an outlandish and comic tone, most violence is still quite graphic.
  • People vomit large amounts of blood multiple scenes.
  • A man's throat is slashed and blood squirts across the screen.
  • A samurai sword gets put through the side of a man's neck, blood pouring out everywhere.
  • Half of a man's head gets shot off, blood squirts everywhere.
  • A man is stabbed in the eye by a throwing knife
  • A compilation of murders are shown. While done for comedic effect some of the kills are very brutal. This includes people getting shot with major blood spurts/splatters, a man getting a machete shoved in his shoulder, a man while being strangled gets a hook shoved through his throat to the top of his head (this is shown in graphic detail), a man gets his throat penetrated by two swords, people get run over, explosions etc
  • A man is shoved through the roof of a train where he gets ripped in half after hitting something. His dismembered upper half is seen rolling down the roof of the train. Quick but pretty bloody.
  • Two men are run over by a train. A huge explosion of blood is seen when they get run over. Quick.
  • It is implied that a child was pushed off of a roof. He is shown unconscious in a hospital bed.
  • There is a flashback revisited frequently throughout the film of an entire party of people dying of poison. They are screaming and bleeding profusely from their eyes while projectile vomiting excessive amounts of blood. It's very outlandish and played with a slight comedic tone. Still quite graphic.
  • A woman dies of poison very slowly. The scene is fairly extended as she crawls along the floor, blood streaming from her eyes and mouth.
  • A man is stabbed in the shoulder. He is seen later with a large blood stain on his shirt surrounding the wound.
  • Two men are seen stuffing body parts into bins of some kind. Sounds of a chainsaw suggest they are chopping up bodies, but this much is not shown. Just a flash of dismembered body parts. This is a flashback that is revisited a few times. The dismembered body parts are always shown very briefly, albeit graphically. The men are covered in blood-soaked plastic smocks. In an extended version of the flashback, a grisly scene of dead bodies are shown, also briefly.
  • A dead man is shown with blood seeping from his eyes. Not graphic and lasts around 3 seconds.
  • In a revisited flashback, a woman is T-Boned in a car accident. Her reaction as the car approaches is all that's seen, and an external shot of the cars colliding.
  • A man is stabbed through the face with a sword which is driven upward through the top of his head. Very graphic.
  • Two men get into an argument about how many people they killed while trying to get someone's son back, which ends up turning into a very violent flashback scene showing a person getting shot in the head, a guy getting stabbed with two swords at once, a man getting a meat hook shoved through his head, etc. All done for comedic effect but pretty graphic.
  • Multiple deaths are shown in sequences of gory and graphic action that include a meat hook shoved to the throat in bloody and graphic detail, gun fights and knife fights that end in people getting killed in a brutal fashion. There are 2 decapitations, one whose body is shown briefly and fast and another shown in a gory way. Bullet Train is a film which is very disturbing, gory and violent.


  • 128 uses of "fuck", 30 uses of "shit", 15 uses of "bullshit" 9 uses of "cocksucker" & 10 uses of "ass" & "bitch"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Cigarettes and cigars are shown very briefly.
  • People drink wine at a wedding.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The action sequences occasionally have a comedic tone but are very bloody.
  • Not really frightening or dark but some scenes can be very bloody. Most of the violence is done with a comedic effect (like when people use plushies when fighting).
  • Many of the main characters, including the protagonist, are assassins and the plot focuses their careers and killing.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Possibly the most violent/gory scene in the film is around the end of the film where someone is about to shoot someone but then gets half of his head blown off by a booby trapped gun. The explosion is shown onscreen with bits of his head shown flying everywhere with major blood splatters. We then see him (with a half a head) fall to ground, dead.
  • In the mid credit scene a man is shot in the head (blood spurts) and a woman gets run over by a truck, we then see blood on the truck. All done in a comedic tone.
  • During the last stop, Lemon picks up half of a killer and half of his body cut off by the train metal rope and you see his body rolling down with blood spraying. Very gory.
  • Tangerine is shot in the neck blood pouring down and spraying everywhere on the walls.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Lemon becomes unconscious when he is given a sleeping powder

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scenes where people bleed from their eyes and vomit blood (due to the poisonous Boomslang snake venom) can be very disturbing to some viewers.
  • People at a wedding are shown throwing up blood and bleeding because someone poisoned the cake. Everyone but the groom dies.
