Sok-woo and his daughter Soo-ahn are boarding the KTX, a fast train that shall bring them from Seoul to Busan. But during their journey, the train is overrun by zombies which kill several of the train staff and other passengers.While the KTX is shooting towards Busan, the passengers have to fight for their lives against the zombies.

First thing I'd like to say about this movie is that it actually is pretty decent! A bit predictable, but it was for sure a lot of fun to watch the characters fight for their survival and struggle (hope that doesn't sound too sadistic). The movie starts pretty mundane with a distant father terribly attempting to connect with his daughter and then the next scene, everyone's going batshit and the whole thing's going full-steam (pun very much intended). It sets up the overall tone of the movie pretty well though. Most things felt real and most definitely felt tense.

Another thing that I was fond of about this film was the character development. How people show their true colors and change once a major panic-inducing even which in this case, a zombie outbreak, happens.

Like this fucking cunt, who I think is universally hated by just about everyone who has seen the movie.
But nonetheless, kudos to the film for actually evoking some strong emotions out of its audience. Not only spite for the man in the photo above, but also feelings of compassion and empathy for the more amiable characters. In the end, I kinda wasn't expecting the ending to go quite the way it did, which happen to be quite bleak. Although, I do have a complaint about the ending though, but would rather hold back on it due to spoilers. I'm not quite sure if it's a sort of standard with Korean cinema, but the movie happens to be rather melodramatic, which gets cheesy or corny sometimes and made the emotional beats not land too great, and there are plenty.

But overall, it's still a really enjoyable film. It truly hits all the "checkboxes" of a solid zombie film. And as one friend says, definitely "has a bit of something for everyone", which is why it doesn't really surprise me how this movie is doing pretty good in terms of word-of-mouth around here. Would recommend catching it in the cinema. I'd bet it'll be a fun time to watch with a big crowd.

Personal rating: 7.5/10
