Very nice idea train which is a terrible ditch, but even this film revives tupizm mosalasi eyes.

When watching I increasingly asked the question: You all in your mind? As I don't post-Apocalypse with zombies, and srednicowy slashers, where a place maniac bloodthirsty crowds of undead.

The characters are devoid of logic and own opinion. The crowd, which the banana is not need to manage. (It's about the moment where people follow the person coming in their own salvation).

A lot of moments that are striking in their stupidity and a line where a human being has completely lost control of the reason for the loss of the person and therefore, all have to suffer, forcing a loud scream. That they glass of the door breaks, then next to the door will be armored like. All actions scripted, many actions are not disclosed, we don't explain what, why and why, and so you can't empathize with the characters and understand ENT of the film. Here you allude to from what happened, but normally it can't explain very sorry. As if the viewer so hint: Read the thoughts of the characters.

The graphics is quite weak. In some places, very noticeable Gromak, but even this to draw in what is tolerated.

In principle, it is a normal film about a zombie, if not think not including the brain.

Korean zombie. Asian subspecies of the rebels, faster than their European and American counterparts, have good jumping ability, but considerably inferior to them in strength, weight and vitality. In the dark lose willpower and give in taming. If you wrap your hands with tape, then practically harmless. Feature: if the infection of the victim, her conversion comes in promptly.

It is hard to take seriously for Korean movies, too much they exaggerated as for non-Asian viewers. All characters template, all relations of cardboard, and even the order and the conditions of death of the characters are almost templates. The no less! Filmed zombie Thriller in the surroundings of the cabin of the train very well. To call it of a zombie horror hard, so as to be frightened so not worked. Probably the above reasons. And that's as a zombie Thriller it's OK — rhythm, dynamics, scurry, crash — went perky.

Fresh Korean idea — survival conditions of Express. Well, what, indeed, survival? The doors were closed and all business. Most importantly — smoke vestibule stops to run out. And so: the zombies are coming in the second grade, the survivors — in the first. All makes sense.

So interesting, I will tell you. We have the writer to complicate the task of expelling minded passengers on the platform and then back again. Tossing the survivors in the cabin of a local Deputy-pest, which will make the main characters proprotionate machinations.

Giving zombies a trump card in the enemy's rear, the Director does not able to avoid traditional for this genre of podygryvanii people. Then the zombies unstoppable, as the Shanghai leopards, then they can crowd to drive under the bunk of the second class the efforts of one Korean Sammo hung. Or Bolo Yenga — character resembled the two known fighters. And kung fu do it too was wow. Plus, as usually, the crucial moment, being in the coverage area of auras the main characters, the zombies get debuffs -100 to speed intelligence. It is not serious, comrade Yong San-Ho!

But the shot is beautiful, without critical mistakes, again, good dynamics, the main characters is quite a good, catchy, background and the essence of each is shown briefly and succinctly.

Normal filmets. Definitely better than the hopeless heresy of the genre of "War Z". By far the worse "Dawn of the dead" and"Deadlock".

I totally confused what to write. The film leaves in shock of catharsis, breaks on hard wave and you just want to hug your knees and lie down, looking in one point.

Very intense plot. Two hours flew by on one breath. Active actions begin very quickly, and immediately makes the horror and panic. Not know that South Korea has learned to make such quality and strong projects (I usually don't watch their movies), but this project is really worth attention.

I in a shock from how the writers managed to create such a busy in action story and to leave the place for a strong dramatic moments and elements of social Proverbs. How they managed to prescribe the actions of the characters so that Yes, sometimes they had fun this is not the stupidity of the students from a typical movie about zombies and conditions of shock and panic the characters themselves. Believe it is up to the latest frightened the cells in the body.

The zombies in this film are terrifying. Every second you are either afraid of how would be the hero was bitten by a zombie, or sit and cry internally along with him the shock of what is happening. The creators have managed to create and to immerse the viewer in the whole world news on the riots that infected the military, calls the phone the frustration of that the old world is no more, and yesterday's problems have now it does not important. The world, built by the creators of the Train, it's hard not to believe.

In this world it is difficult not to empathize with the main characters, most ordinary people who found themselves in this shock situation. No notorious luck, justified by the plot, as is typical of such paintings. All of thought, everything is written, it is really fascinating. Not say that the performance of all the actors I have arranged a mini-line sisters old ladies got me confused, but it's the little things in than the enormous work done on this movie.

As said about this film the character of Con Yu the drama of Dokkebi (Goblin/Demon): "the Future of Korean cinema optimistic". This is a huge breakthrough cinema of South Korea, and I really begin to like and be proud of this small but enterprising and hardworking country.

And watching this film, you know that even people from different countries, we are similar. The father who works hard and not see daughter. Difficult choice "either me or me." The help and support of others. The concern of the parent about the child. Wild, instinctive need of the child in the parent. The film touches up to depth of soul.

The main character is not leader kind, not the hero, not the perfect dad, although he it turns out later, good. He is not devoid of ingenuity and mind, with the zeal and heroism, consult a stunning hero MA Dong-Seok. Character Con Yu goes through a moral path for those few hours in the train, choosing between selfishness and mutual assistance second. Selfish, living according to the principle "my hut with edge" — in the beginning, and more caring other every minute of the movie that at the end and then turned into a extremely sad, heartbreaking climax. Daughter's scream, fight with her, gathered in the last push in this exhausting struggle to save her from myself itself. A powerful moment in which you are drowning with your head. In which internally crying with the main character.

Kon Yu believe, believe everyone it look, hug and every emotion that he lived with a hero. Absolutely stunning actor of South Korean cinema. Enviable his taste and legible approach projects which he is involved. Its characters are so different and compelling from each has its own energy, which is not be confused with another. A talented and modest actor, whose new projects I look forward.
