If you want the story, the actors, magnificant screenplay and feel your heart skipping a beat? Don't miss this great movie!!

This is one of the best zombie movies in the world. Yes it all has the same old same story, its lighthearted. But not all movie directors can make it so perfectly like they did here. The actors were amazing, all of them. I said 'wtf' troughout the whole movie, I read more could feel my heart pumping, heck, I am even sweating!
The music added so much emotion and tumult in this movie. It has the loads of action, thrilling scenes, gory parts and hair-raising parts troughout this movie.

Why am I so ridiculously excited? The good pacing of this movie, you get sucked into it the minute you watch it. The actors whom all did an excellent job, they were convincing, Ma dong Seok is like always the freaking badass. Everyone had their time and story in this movie. The CGI was greatly made and the actors of the zombies felt so real, the nasty bone breaking scenes and blood everywhere. The music added so much tension in everyscene.

I would rewatch this movie any day and I do think this will be one of first Korean movies to be seen around the globe, because here in my home town, where they never heard of Kdrama land, now knows about this movie.

A 100% must watch!

I swear to god this darn tear-jerker.

If you're looking for a real horror, this isn't it.
If you hate crying (lmao tf), this definitely isn't it.
I'd say for this movie, it's tragedy before horror. Sure, there are some horror elements, however- it's really more sad than scary.

The story is subtle. It's not deep. I have to remind you that this show's literal title is TRAIN TO BUSAN. It's a read more whole show about characters doing their utmost best to reach the safe zone- Busan. On a train. It lived up to its title, i'll give it that.

The acting and characters were great. Gong Yoo's acting is great, it's a given. His character's development was great. He went from a selfish to a selfless man that cared about others more.
Ma Dong Seok's character is as likeable here as his character in Bad Guys. You'll get fixated with his character for sure. This actor deserves more recognition.
And the most unexpected- Kim Soo An. She's an adorable and talented little actress. Then again, most Korean child actors and actresses have that shit going on. The other main characters were alright.

There will be this asshole which will piss you off the most among all the characters in the movie. Don't worry- this isn't a major spoiler. He'll strike a nerve from the start so it doesn't matter. You would want to kill him too. Head's up, it's Kim Eui Seong's character. He's not likeable I must say. However, he played his role well.

The music is good. It's suitable when it's suitable. That's all I can say.

Rewatch value: 10
Heck yeah i'd watch it again.
I can tell you that I am definitely not a fan of zombie movies but as I said earlier, it's more of a tragedy than horror. So if you're a major zombie-apocalypse-kind-of-movie fan that finds value in the horror aspect and expects this movie to fulfil it to its best, don't expect too much. The makeup's great though- just sayin'.

Even if I cry my eyes out again, it's worth the watch.
If you enjoy a little bit of horror, action, thrill, a little wincey bit of comedy and tragedy, give this movie a go. It's one hell of a ride.

Make a Recommendation More recs (5)Recommendations

I was scrolling through Netflix last night and I was looking for another DC show to watch(couldn't find anything appealing) and I had the remote in my hand went to go get a drink from the kitchen and I come back and this is on the screen and I'm like hmmmm whats this I proceeded to read the description I'm like interesting I put it on and boom I feel in love with this movie from the start. Starts off like another zombie movie would've 5 or maybe 10 mins into it the everything starts to unfold chaos, wreckage, people dying the 9 yards at first you get attached to the father and daughter then later everyone else which was interesting because you don't know who's going turn or whom's betraying whom. I loved most of the people in this movie which is very heart breaking and the thrill is real and you need watch this with your friends and make predictions on who's going to get turn or die like you're watching the walking dead for example they leave off with something big and you gotta wait for the next episode but here you don't need to wait everything happens in a blink of an eye and then you play through the whole scene again to see who just die and what not.

Please I know my recommendation synopsis is straight trash just take some time out of your day or meet up with friends or a girl and do netflix and chill (I watched it on netflix last night sooo ^_^) it's a great movie I wish some characters would live and some turned I hope this helps I will now mourn the death's of my favorite characters who I wanted to see alive. This movie is the most thrilling movie I've seen in a while it's was a great feeling and tears will be shed I'm telling from experience.
Truly yours,

Watch it to find out who lives and who dies and to see why I get so attached and how I wish they lived all of the characters whom've died (some of them not all)
*********************SPOILERS WATCH OUT**********************************

Both movies are very when it comes to characters, and themes. Both movies have a catastrophic event. That causes terror and chaos.

      I thought they already announced that Song Joong Ki is going to be the main lead for Train to Busan 2, and he's probably playing a doctor.
