Usually I would number this but it’s been more than 2 yrs since my last one, but this movie was too good not to review so here it is…
This week’s movie reviews of the week is… Train to Busan
Plot: Train to Busan is a harrowing 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 resort city that has managed to hold off the zombie hordes- or so everyone hopes. (cre:google,lol)
After seeing it mentioned in the drama Goblin, I knew it was gonna be horror genre movie but I wasn’t too sure what the movie was gonna be about. I didn’t have much expectations either because when it comes to horror movies Koreans…lack a bit in that genre, unlike drama movies where you’ll need to prepare some tissues before you start the movie. But this movie right here is the exception, ima admit right here I did get frightened a few times in the beginning but after the first 30-45 minutes things got really intense. But like really intense where you find yourself going a bit crazy thinking there’s really no way out. Things after things happen and our lead casts doesn’t give up and try their best to survive.
The scenes where the people would get bitten and turned into zombies where really well done, it gave me the creeps watching them twitch and turn and become full zombie. Many props to the actors for really getting into character and doing a job well done. Gong yoo’s acting was amazing obviously and the rest of the cast had awesome chemistry together. Everything about this movie was amazing and incredibly well written. It was really about survival of the fittest here along with survival of the desperate, it even had that one character we all love to hate because they want to do everything to survive no matter what it takes to do it. But this movie presents such a sweet sweet taste of karma though, that i was glad and mad when it happened. Overall I really enjoyed this movie, it was a really intense ride throughout the movie and that ending…wow just wow. My rating for this movie? 5/5 everything was just perfect in my opinion, the only one thing i can say is bad about this movie it’s that at some points it was just too intense. Like they were just putting thing after thing against the leads that if it felt like just too much. But overall this was a really amazing movie, my congrats to the amazing cast that did an awesome job and hope they win some type of award for it.
and here’s the trailer for it
