Zombies, shot at life among humans never works out. This is no exception.

-plot in terms of the intro. There are many routes this could have played out: the news bulletin of an out break, a chemical gas, magic. Their take was more realistic in terms of a passersby(an unaware person) and was not too played out. For example don't you hate movies that start out generally the same without much change:batman and robin, spiderman, deadpool all fighting for justice.

-ending was definitely not what i thought for sure. Kudos to the writers on that. Yet, i feel mixed on read more

Seoul-yeok / Seoul Station is clearly not a must-watch movie but represents an average movie for zombies fans and a bad movie for Last Train for Busan's fans.

If you have never watched the live-action film Last Train for Busan, please go ahead and watch this masterpiece of modern zombies films. I watched many films with this thema, going from classics (George Romero's fims such as Zombie, Night of the Living Dead, etc) but also modern ones (Resident Evil saga, World War Z, 28 Days Later, etc) and Last Train for Busan can easily enter my top 5.

So for those who have not watched it yet, read more

I'm genuinely confused by the curious amount of critical success the film received. With a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes I thought the film could do no wrong, but I learned from my foolish mistake after watching this. Seoul Station is the prequel to Train to Busan, a live-action Korean zombie movie that enjoyed great success. I haven't seen Train to Busan myself, but I am curious as to how it stacks up to this movie - I assume it's a lot better.

The plot of Seoul Station is easy to guess given the subject matter - a zombie outbreak occurs, causing society to be disrupted read more

It may be about zombies but the director seems to take a zombie apocalypse to bring out a social scope on the matter; South Korea’s homeless predicament is a ubiquitous theme throughout the film, prostitution secondly, youth runaways. Centerpoints which all come down to a social class theme.

At least that’s what I thought of it.

Homelessness was tied to all the prominent characters from what I saw as I scrubbed the video to the beginning, going back before finishing the last act, pausing at the each character’s first appearance onscreen. Their surroundings tell all and are primary motivation for specific characters decisions; where they read more
