Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Movie Review!




Ana Espinoza, writer

Now in theaters, the long awaited Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was released on April 23, 2021 to theaters in the U.S..  I rate this movie an 9/10 because even though the movie itself had amazing visual effects, an adrenaline soundtrack, and top notch voice acting, watching the movie felt like watching multiple episodes of the anime without the opening and ending theme songs.

In the beginning of the movie, it starts off straight away from the last episode the anime left off. The main plot of the movie is when the Demon Slayers: Tanjiro, Inouske, Zinistu, and Rengoku board a train on a mission when one of the lower three demons Enmu has also boarded the train with the intention of feasting upon the 300 passengers on board the train, including the demon slayers. With the help of the train conductor, Enmu makes a deal with him and four other kids to punch the passengers ticket to make them fall asleep, going into a dream state hallucination were they will slowly die. The kids on the other hand, must bind themselves with the demon slayers, go into their dream and destroy their subconscious which kills them. Enmu plans on keeping the demon slayers asleep, but it backfires when eventually all four of the demon slayers wake up and begin to fight the demon while also protecting the 300 passengers.
