    Train to Busan - South Korean WWZ

    Came across this trailer recently and was surprised to see that it wasn't posted on here.
    Have the bulk of posters left this forum? I remember a time when this was the go to place for zombie related chit-chat.

    I just saw it. It is one of the best zombie flicks I have seen in years.

    I'll give it a spin when it rolls around on the telly schedules.

    I have heard in a couple of places that it might be a bit overlong for what it is - did anyone who has watched it think that?

    Good Stuff

    I really enjoyed it. It had heart. A little cheesy in places. But altogether done well. One of the few zombie movies in the past few years that held my interest all the way through.

    Agreed!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I came away from it a bit disappointed, The "zombies" are the modern type. Sprinters with milky lenses and stupid alien screams. The story is fine, the setting well used and the moving ending builds well.

    It's worth a look.

    Thanks to the OP. I came across this thread a couple of weeks ago. Had no idea of this movie. I Netflixed it the next day. I really enjoyed it. So much so I ordered a blu ray on Ebay. I had to have it in my collection! Is it Dawn of the Dead, good? No; but it sure is a decent zombie flick. Luckily I don't have a problem with sprinters. It had me on the edge of my seat more than a few times.

    It's a good flick. Not my kind of zombies but it's really entertaining.

    Never been a fan of the modern, fast/weird alien screech zombies, but DAMN this was a great film...most fun I've had with a first time watch in a LONG time....now watching the second day in a row with the wife who HATES horror (especially zombies) and shes enjoying it.

    I thought it was really well done. I liked the zombie reaction to the lack of light and the military responses. The casting was great, they really made me care what happened. I watched it with subtitles though, I imagine it's horrible dubbed.
