The Breakdown of 'Bullet Train', 'Prey', and 'The Gray Man'

It is an action-packed episode of The Movie Breakdown with the guns blazing and villains pursuing our heroes. The big theatrical release is the star-powered over-the-top actioner led by Brad Pitt in Bullet Train. We also return to a popular action series with the latest installment of Predator in the 1700s set Prey. Then it is a spy on the run action thriller with big star power with Ryan Gosling, Ana De Armas, and Chris Evans starring in The Gray Man.

After the movie reviews, we look at the recent cancelling of Batgirl, and discuss what this says about the future of movies and especially Warner Bros. Discovery.
