Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng): Movie Review

A really good review of a popular Korean film I enjoyed watching.


train-to-busan1This film’s been showing in cinemas for two weeks already before I finally got on the train (pun intended) to Busan along with millions of fans who were bowled over by this South Korean zombie movie and I totally get the hype. It was one thrill ride (again, pun intended, I’m on a roll here) that deserved the accolades that it received from the international media.

Workaholic fund manager Seok-woo (Gong-yoo) sets out for Busan to grant the wish of his daughter Soo-an (Kim Su-an) to visit his ex-wife for her birthday. However, just as the train departs, chaos ensues as an injured woman begins to attack and infect train passengers with something that makes them behave like zombies. As the remaining passengers of the train try to survive, Seok-woo must try to protect his daughter at all cost and deliver her to Busan, which remains safe against the outbreak.
