So, I have watched Train to Busan twice. I asked a few of my girl friends if they have also watched and they replied 'its too scary' even though they haven't even watched it. Makes me wonder if I am the minority among the girls who love such genre?
Anyway, here's my thought about this movie. I have a lot of emotions running though my head everytime this movie is being mentioned.
This zombie movie is not just about the gore and violence. It depicts a lot of human emotions, and the characters in it, you either love or hate them enough like they actually existed. Have to keep reminding myself, it's just a movie, cannot keep cursing the COO Uncle.
The best part about this movie is it's so fast-paced. I watched the midnight show(after a Long working day), my husband told me I would fall asleep, but I proved him wrong. I was WIDE-AWAKE throughout the whole movie because it's so exciting. It only took the first 15 minutes to elaborate the strained relationship between the father and daughter. And how the father is finally convinced to take his daughter to Busan to meet her mother. They need to take the train to busan, totally oblivion of the horror that's going to unfold before their eyes.
She bited her first victim, who happens to be a cabin attendant (above). Within minutes, more than half of the passengers were being infected and piling up like mountains.
Their only hope left is to reach a station of safety. But I can feel how despaired and betrayed these people must have felt, when they reached the station, only to realize they are actually being abandoned to die, with a sea of zombies waiting to bite them(below). :(
The 3 man were the last to hop onto train in order to stall off the zombies so that the rest can run to safety first. But in order to reunite with their love ones where they got separated from amidst the chaos, they need to pass through cabins filled with teeth-gnashing zombies. And the most horrible thing about the zombies is they run at lightning speed.... with little to no time for reaction. But left with no choices, they can only brace themselves for the arduous battle.
The lead actor (Gong Yoo), eventually died in the hands of the selfish bastard during the attempt to save his daughter and the pregnant woman. What a sad ending when he is turning into a zombie, the images of his then newborn daughter slowly flashed through his mind. This scene is easily relatable to any parents for sure. Damn sad. :'(((((
This movie sold millions of tickets!
Wow i haven't wrote such a long movie review before, but i really have so much to say about this! Zombies ftw!!
