Film – The Train to Busan – A Morality Tale of These Modern Times


From what seems to be a yet another take on the end of world zombie scenario type of flick, the smash hit South Korean film “Train to Busan” delves deeper into the dark side of the human psyche and how humans react to near death experiences where it is ultimately killed or be killed.


The film plays cleverly on how first impressions may not always be correct and how appearances can be deceiving.

As the world we know seems to be falling apart, ripping at the seams and people do not know who to trust; this film seems to capture the failings and upside of humanity in a few hours. It seems the train itself and the people trapped on it are a metaphor for society.

Top notch action from start to finish.
