What a crazy movie those zombies wow how fast then can move. This was filled with nonstop action when it got rolling. It was so crazy how people who were not infected how to not become infected themselves.

If you very fast action zombie movie this is the one.

Hmm...a Z movie with some heart and delves into cowardice and self-sacrifice.
No skimping on special effects here.
Note: in crowded close quarter combat with zombies, swinging weapons are less effective than stabbing ones (a lesson from the Roman army).
Also you should select English audio to avoid reading through the action scenes.

I found myself skipping through this film, even though it did have some quality and a sincere attempt to provide an decent story around a "misguided" corporate father and his torn young daughter (from a recent divorce), as they face a sea of zombies while commuting on a train.
Was pretty easy to see what was happening and didn't feel like I was missing much.

Too all you hate fast zombie haters (let us not forget the first zombie in Night Of The Living Dead was fast), this movie would not be as good if the zombies were slow

This is such an awesome contribution to the genre, & very light on the melodrama that often derails (whoops!) other horror films from the Far East. I was really impressed by the movement & choreography of the action, & the transportation context was used to excellent effect. Five stars with baseball bats who only have each other, people...! CR

Even though this film is Korean the subtitling is very good. I have watched this movie a few times and really enjoyed it. You really root for the characters and the tight band of survivors they become as they fight zombies on the train to Busan. Very well done!! I highly recommend it.

I love zombie and apocolypse movies, and this is the best zombie/apocolypse movie I've ever seen. I cry each time I watch it. It has emotion, love, despair, hope - wonderfully put together.

Loved this movie! Zombie flicks really aren't my thing, but this movie changed my mind. The acting (for the most part the teen acting was a bit iffy but eh) was very good. Aside from a few odd placed lines, it was well written too. I never expected to get emotional in a horror movie, let alone with one with zombies, but I was crying by the end of this movie. If you want to start watching international movies, and are looking for something to ease you in, I would defiantly recommend this movie.

Sang-ho Yeon’s “caboose of the living dead” flick is one helluva ride from the high-speed CGI mayhem to a perfectly cast group of protagonists who run the gamut from clueless frat boys to corporate slimeball to sweet little girl (an amazing turn from ten-year old Su-an Kim). But it’s the zombies that take centre stage with their angry white eyes and impossibly twisted spines as they jerk and dash maniacally on the hunt for blood. Moving like an organic mass, they tumble over each other occasionally cresting into tidal waves of snapping teeth and grisly maws as they overwhelm anything with a pulse. Surprisingly Yeon keeps the gore to a minimum of squirting arteries and torn flesh preferring to imply carnage rather than showcase it and the overall effect puts the creep factor through the ceiling—the image of writhing bodies and sprays of blood silhouetted against an opaque window becomes the stuff of nightmares. Of course there are a few eye-rolling moments common to the genre—why do people stop running at the most inopportune moments?—and a daddy-daughter bonding moment is pure Korean melodrama with gushing tears and slo-mo flashbacks while the orchestra works itself into a frenzy. But these minor drawbacks are lost amidst two hours of delirious chaos as Yeon tightens the tension leaving you to wonder if ANYONE will make it to the final stop.
