Sang-ho Yeon's tense, violent, frenetic, action filled, blood splattered, 118 minutes of flesh-eating zombies beats the morning's dull suburban run.
Workaholic hedge fund manager Geok -woo (Gong Yoo), his daughter Su-an (Kim Su-an) and the expected mix of passengers board the Busan express for a relaxed, snooze along journey. Out of sight a woman boards, munches the train conductor's jugular and draws him into the dead eyed, flesh eating zombie club. The Busan Express is about to become a one-way, zombie invasion which has infected the entire country and civilisation makes way for a barbaric, panic ridden fight for last person standing.
The final frames are too easy, too kind, Hollywood style predictable, but 'Train To Busan' remains a frenetic, ketchup laden, thrilling, zombie ride.
