Following a work obsessed father Seok Woo and his daughter Soo-an, on their way to visit Soo-an's mother in Busan. While the pair jump on board they are unaware that a deadly virus is starting to spread around the local Korean towns and cites and it isn't long before they, and a array of other passengers, find themselves trapped on a train of the infected with only one destination, Busan, in site. Is the City save? or are then heading into a zombie filled trap?
While some questionable effects at times, as a whole Train to Busan is one of the best zombie films if have seen in a VERY long time, and with so many zombie film about nowadays this is a turn up for the books. Remove the zombie threat however and we get a touching story of the relationship between a father, who we see is only working so hard to provide a life for his daughter and a child who just wants the love and attention of her dad. This leads to a touching and heart breaking finale (which we will not talk about) for these two and the other characters we get to meet on the way. But lets face it we are here for a shit load of zombie action, and we get it in buckets.
The zombie action is gory, over the top at times and it is awesome. This is the type of gore fest you want with a zombie film. There are two major moments I enjoyed the most action wise, one being the first train stop where the passengers think they are safe, only to be chased by a shit ton of zombies, getting separated from each other in small groups in the process and the part of the film which sees Seok Woo, Sang Hwa and two other passengers going carriage to carriage trying to get to their loved ones.
This is a must for all zombie fans, and not only those fans but fans of horror and film in general too. Train to Busan is a film to set atop the mantle of zombie films to come, showing the sub-genre what you need to aim for.
