Train to Busan Instrueret af Yeon Sang-ho
The propulsively entertaining Train to Busan takes Snowpiercer’s locomotive class warfare and adds zombies, resulting in the biggest Korean hit of 2016 (whose rights have already been snapped up for the inevitable Hollywood remake)… In his live-action debut, anime director Yeon Sang-ho turns train cars into cellular dramas of class resentments, nail-biting escapes and torturous moral choices.

Most of the lifts here are from Bong Joonho. The idea of a train with an ‘elite’ cloistered in First Class has an obvious debt to Snowpiercer, and the stuff about brutal military enforcement of infection-containment measures derives from The Host. But as we’ve noted, Yeon does know how to run with second-hand ideas. His fast-moving, acrobatic zombies (yes, he’s seen World War Z) make possible a couple of really knockout images during the climactic scenes in East Daegu shunting yard.

Yeon’s script could stand to loosen its grip on stock character behavior, but he’s got a way with a setpiece that’ll make you sit up in your chair. Zombie brawls, stealth crawls through dark compartments and various zombie footraces and train chases are this film’s specialty and it dolls them out with just the right frequency. As close to literally 40 miles of bad road as possible.

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Train to Busan

    The zombie genre is feeling as tired as ever. "Busan" moves at a good clip, but at the expense of the endearing characters and emoting I so admire Korean genre cinema for -- there are some neat shots of zombies overflowing into train cars, but it feels very thin, as "World War Z" did.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Train to Busan

    Clever in its action-horror set pieces, but the massive loss of life is is quite apathetic with so many vapid and tepid characters, while the family drama of its leads is rudimentary. It's a bloated action film with zero cares or tears. Richer character specificity could've worked wonders, allowing time for its melodrama to become a drama and more deaths to be emotional. See the prior year's, I Am A Hero, instead.

  • The Macho King's rating of the film Train to Busan

    I was surprised with how good it actually was. It is the best use of the "fast/rabid" kind of zombie since the remake of Dawn of the Dead. Wouldn't say its scary but it is enjoyable and has moments where the tension builds nicely. Overall a refreshing change of pace and a step above the majority of the stagnate fodder thats gets released within the zombie genre nowadays.

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film Train to Busan

    Perfecta mezcla de zombie film y melodrama enloquecido, Train To Busan puede ponerse un poco empalagosa en su aspecto sentimental pero lo dulce se balancea con dosis de suspenso y adrenalina que no solo exhiben una gran comprensión de los géneros escencialmente populares sino también una maestría en el uso del espacio para la aparición de lo político. Esto es cine como espectáculo consciente de sus posibilidades.

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Train to Busan

    It's 28 days later! On a train! And the hero is a hedge fund manager. Wait... That's just too much. Running zombies are believable enough but altruistic hedge fund managers are just too far fetched (What's next? The president of the IMF is not corrupted to the core?). Ultimately, Train to Busan looks like an episode of World War Z. Not necessarily a negative criticism, by the way.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Train to Busan

    My last film in 2016/ first film in 2017. Horde of zombies like crazed contemporary dancer (that horrid awakening!), terrific avalanche of blood & guts in second part, Dong-seok Ma "the Korean teddybear," who strikes zombies with bare hands....there are many interesting elements but drama part laden with dull cliches diminish that virtures. C'mon, show me not familial love, but MORE bloody disgusting zombies!!!

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Train to Busan

    "Busan" borrows the narrative device, if not the class commentary, of "Snowpiercer," and I ask: what's wrong with that? The concept of a motley crew of strangers forced to travel from train car to train car under constant threat is a stellar one, and "Busan" utilizes it to successfully invigorate the tired zombie genre. One again, Korea runs laps around Hollywood when it comes to slick, commercial entertainment.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Train to Busan

    A fastpaced and exciting ride that after a brief set up gets going and never lets up until the final frames. The acting is solid and the direction is assured from the get go. Scriptwise there are not many missteps but the movies might not get many points in originality and some tropes feel like lip service to the genre rather than something that elevates the movie. Still this flick was an exhilarating juggernaut!
