Where do I start? I never thought I would enjoy a Korean movie this much but credit must be given when it’s due right? This film has all the right ingredient to make it an international hit. Capturing worldwide audience’s attention with the current zombie apocalypse theme while inserting Asian values. The performances by the actors were great especially from a certain baddie and even the horrible zombies deserve some praise. The storyline is well thought to keep an exciting journey to reach Busan. You will find yourself exhale in relief that this is just a work of fiction and no such thing as zombie disaster will ever happen for real…right? *shudder

This maybe a ‘train ride’ but get ready for a roller coaster of feelings while watching it. From the word get go it takes you thru so many level of emotions. My friend and I laughed, cringed and heck…we even end up crying at one heart-breaking scene. We were also rooting for some passengers to make it while cursing the crap out of some selfish commuters to meet their end in a possible awful way. Overall we were glad we got ‘on-board’ Korea’s highest grossing film in Malaysia and so will you.
