Movie A Day Challenge 2020
Movie #30: Train To Busan
It's not often a zombie movie brings this much emotion to the table. I'm not ashamed to admit I teared up more than once over the runtime. I had a fun time with this movie but don't have a ton to say about it. For as played out as the zombie movie has become I can say that this felt like a fairly fresh take on it. The directing felt a little too energetic at times but was solid overall. The performances all around were good, with a few standout exceptions (that little girl can definitely wring a tear or two out of even the toughest of tough boys.) The story didn't blow me away but it was still well done. Truth be told I'd probably give this movie a 3/5 if it weren't for the actress who plays Su-An because she really carried the end moments of the movie almost single-handedly. So overall I give Train to Busan a 3.5/5 and look forward to any potential sequels that may come out.
