Train to Busan

Critically-acclaimed South Korean zombie horror-thriller that follows a group of terrified passengers fighting their way through a countrywide viral outbreak while trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to Busan - a southern city that has, apparently, managed to hold off the zombie hordes.

Sprinting right out of the gate, the director, Yeon Sang-ho, dives gleefully into a sandbox of spilled brains and smug entitlement.

A feast for the scary, gymnastic bit players: contorting their bodies, baring teeth and running full bore. On this express, they're a first-class menace indeed.

Holy crap. I need to watch more asian cinema that was goddamn great. Terrific performance from the lead, fantastic cinematography for the most part, and a pretty good script. Actually cared for most of the characters that I was supposed to care about, which is already great. A few complaints: the cgi was horrible, the soundtrack sometimes felt cheesy...

A group of passengers try to survive a zombie infested train, hoping their destination, Busan City, can offer them relief from the zombie-infestation that’s plaguing the country. If 28 Days Later and Snowpiercer had a baby it would be Train to Busan. This movie offered more than your typical zombie survival movie genre and added a much needed emotional...

A terrific film. Fast-paced, with a solid story, and super fast zombies, "Train to Busan" is a far better film than most in its genre. The story has a heart, which makes you care for the characters, and the world's most evil villain. Highly recommended.

Really fun Korean zombie action movie. Train to Busan had me on the edge of my seat, lots of suspense and tension, I was never bored. I'm glad I found out this was showing in cinemas. Definitely worth watching. Grade: B+
