Seoul Station

Seoul Station ★★★

Seoul Station dials the social commentary way up even compared to Train to Busan, but it's hampered by average animation and it has to live in the shadow of the superior movie. We've already seen Seoul fall. Also, there's no Ma Dong-seok in this one.

I did really like the social awareness, though. For the first twenty minutes or so I was worried it were just going to validate the trope about people living without homes and disease vectors, but then the old guy calls out the cops for perpetuating that exact trope. Come to think of it, I enjoyed the first half of the movie much more than the last half, and the last half is where it turns into a fairly standard zombie flick.
