Zombie movies can feel redundant. People become zombies, and our heroes try to survive. "Train to Busan" des this, but what makes it feel so refreshing is that it has added layers of social commentary and really impactful moments. Additionally, the characters are well developed and that is an element that can be lacking in horror films generally. I tried watching this movie with English dubs, but ultimately I couldn't stand the dubbing. I watched it with subtitles and was able to fully enjoy the movie. The acting is strong from the entire cast. Yeon Sang-Ho directs this movie with skill that is not seen in a majority of horror movies. The story surrounds a father and daughter that have a distant relationship. They get on a train to see her mother and things go awry. An infection spreads across the country and an infected person boards the train at the last second. The infection spreads quickly among the passengers and the uninfected passengers struggle to survive. The story is simple, but watching the father and daughter become closer and bond while surviving on a train is emotional and impactful. Several characters die, and each death is deeply felt. The dialogue has some strong moments, but sometimes has some standard horror cliches, but overall it is good. There could also be some things lost in translation a little bit. There is some great set up and pay off. The very first scene sets up how the breakout happens, and later we learn that the father's company is indirectly responsible for the infection spreading. The suspense is great and there are some really stressful moments. This is definitely one of the best zombie movies ever made, if not THE best ever. It has some flaws, but for the most part it is a very well done and great movie. It runs a tad too long, and it could have benefitted from more settings other than a train or train station. Overall, I give this movie an 8.5/10.
