When a zombie virus pushes Korea into a state of emergency, those trapped on an express train to Busan must fight for their own survival.

Our Take

8.0
Juan Manuel

A zombie virus breaks out and catches up with a father as he is taking his daughter from Seoul to Busan, South Korea’s second-largest city. Watch them trying to survive to reach their destination, a purported safe zone.

The acting is spot-on; the set pieces are particularly well choreographed. You’ll care about the characters. You’ll feel for the father as he struggles to keep his humanity in the bleakest of scenarios.

It’s a refreshingly thrilling disaster movie, a perfect specimen of the genre.

I agree, “a perfect specimen of the genre.” The movie had such an amazing start, giving you a taste, and the movement of the zombies was simply thrilling.

Best zombie movie I’ve seen in a long time, and certainly the most emotionally heart wrenching.
