Train to Busan's user reviews

Entertainment Weekly

"The result is first-class throughout".

Read review Clark Collis

"Train to Busan pulses with relentless locomotive momentum. As an allegory of class rebellion and moral polarization, it proves just as biting as Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi dystopia 'Snowpiercer', while delivering even more unpretentious fun".

"The key to the fun is that Yeon eschews lookie-loo gore for thrilling set pieces: his fleet, imaginative action scenes recall Brad Bird?s crisp transition to real people in peril when he made his 'Mission Impossible' movie".

"Ultimately, however, the film?s greatest strength is its surprising humanity: Train to Busan forces you to care not just about Seok-woo and Su-An, but about a number of the individuals caught up in the chaos".

"Although it lacks the layers evident in Yeon's acclaimed animations (including the thematically-linked Seoul Station), this is still an entertaining ride, as well as providing political commentary when it overtly references the Korean government's response to the MERS virus alongside commenting on the country's class system".

"For almost 45 minutes, Yeon Sang-ho's Train to Busan is on pace to become the best, most urgent zombie movie since ?28 Days Later.? And then - at once both figuratively and literally - this broad Korean blockbuster derails in slow-motion, sliding off the tracks and bursting into a hot mess of generic moments and digital fire".
