“Like most Chinese films, Junkrat Train suffers from very inconsistent, and frequently subpar CGI. Some of the scenes of packs of rats in the city streets work, but for the most part, the effects just don’t work. The explosion near the film’s end is particularly awful […] If you can deal with that and some preachy moments from the script Junkrat Train will kill ninety minutes reasonably well.” Voices from the Balcony
The movie was released in China on January 7th 2021. It can be watched free online via the iQIYI website.
