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.

Both movies are very when it comes to characters, and themes. Both movies have a catastrophic event. That causes terror and chaos.
Recommended by MinaLee
It's also an epidemic movie with one main character who wants to save his family and whole South Korea.

    great movie , really really great movie with amazing cast . and this movie somehow have several moral values but what's more important is that this movie relay a message about MOTHER . from the start till the end. maybe like how important they are , and who will always be on our side till the end . maybe? overall , parents are amazingly great for protecting and caring their children

    the Yong Seok character reminds me of one of the Titanic selfish character that you will know who once you watch this film.

    After the great reviews I thought it would be amazing, but it was rather average!
    NO PLOT DEVELOPMENT! Zombies, zombies... let's run and hope to survive!

    As a viewer, I wanted to know more about the background story. It doesn't matter that there is a prequel, especially an animation. Nothing was explained.
    The acting was okay, I guess and the effects were pretty good.
