I'm not a big fan of South Korea movies or TV shows but I love zombie movies so I try this one and I didn't disappointed as a zombie movie fan!

Train to Busan is such a great ride, Well Written, A lovely cinematography, wonderful performances with the main cast, and especially unbelievable performance with the zombie actors to this film!

This is the film that you will never forget this year because its all in one movie, FUN RIDE, ACTION RIDE, SUSPENSE RIDE AND DRAMA RIDE! Hollywood zombies films I think you need to think twice now because South Korea zombies will eat you alive!
