Apparently it's going to have a US release soon.

Funny. I have been on the KTX - my first time on a train faster than 300kph - many times, and even to Busan. Never saw any zombies though.

I'll have to watch that and see if I recognise anything. I lived in for Korea two years.

For those that liked the movie, there is an animated prequel called Seoul Station that details events leading up to Train to Busan.

Here's the trailer:

I found this movie impressive. I was rooting for the protagonist all the way to the bitter end. The filming, special effects writing and plot were all first rate. The acting was a little over the top dramatic as is common from that part of the world but it did not take away from the film at all.

The film addresses the unique problem of South Korea:
- A highly technologically advanced civilized state
- Heavy government control
- Differing family values than the Western approach (but not too different)
- A heavily striated social structure

Things fall apart very fast creating a larger than expected vacuum without an organized state to address things.

I watched this recently as well. I really enjoyed it. A good movie worth watching if you don't mind subtitles. I like how things fall apart so quickly, and there isn't firearms, etc to fall back on. Instead its bats, etc for self defense. I like how they improvised armor in order to fight through. It was also interesting how it showed the different ways their government handled it vs. how we've seen the USA or Europe handle the zombie outbreak in other movies.

Since I do work as a train conductor, albeit on a freight train, it did make me wonder how many zombies I could take with a tomahawk brakestick and Redwing steel toed boots before I went down (especially since I can't carry any weapons on duty).

I watched it a good bit ago. I really enjoyed it, don't mind subtitles since I usually watch anime with the wife anyways.
Korean movies, at least the ones that make it to be shown in the US seem to be pretty awesome. I really liked the movie "Flu" too.

I watched about half. It was disappointing. I think it was supposed to be a horror/ comedy/ Godzilla movie. I really didn't get it.

I have not watched it. Didn't see that it was Korean. But I assumed it was like "The Blob" and it didn't interest me.

I took it more as a family so dysfunctional it's comedic, searching and fighting a man made mutant monster despite the government forces when the monster carried off a family member to it's lair to consume her later . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Host_(2006_film)

just watched it and overall liked it a lot. Ending was a good twist.
