What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:
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.
I found out about this movie during the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine, some commenters said that it was the best zombie movie that they had seen, which surprised me because I had never heard of this movie before.
To my surprise this was possibly among the best zombie movies that I have ever seen, definitely the best zombie movie that I have seen in several years, it is a shame that this movie came out several years ago without most people knowing about it.
Most people still do not know about it, probably because it is a South Korean movie that is not dubbed in English, but to my surprise reading the English subtitles did not bother me and I adjusted to it almost instantly.
The actors and actresses playing the zombies did a good job with contorting their bodies and acting wild, the acting was better than I had expected, there were emotional moments that brought a few tears to my eyes (I did not cry though), there was tension, the special effects were better than I had expected, there were some nice action scenes, and the ending was not bad.
