I never thought I’d say this, but the bullet train fight sequence in The Wolverine might be the most realistic train fight in cinema history. That is, of course, if you can ignore the claws coming out of Wolverine’s hands.
OK, so that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but this is the first time I can recall a movie actually acknowledging that trains move fast. This is especially true of bullet trains in Japan which are currently cruising upwards of 200 MPH. At that speed you can’t just casually stand up and punch each other. You’ll immediately start tumbling backwards if you’re not creating as much friction as possible. Sure, people can’t actually pull off a multi-car, Marvel vs. Capcon style drill claw like Wolverine just did, but at least the spirit of the scene is accurate.
