Critic Reviews for Seoul Station

  • At times it is oppressively morose, but it has a nice dusting of social realism to go with the violence, and reaches an agreeably nasty conclusion.

  • Yeon Sang-ho's third feature is no less fierce and violent as his The King of Pigs and The Fake efforts, and wholeheartedly artistic at the same time.

  • Yeong Sang-ho directs a film where the key word (apart from zombies ) is cruelty, as is the main sentiment that permeates the animation.Through its multileveled, filled with social comments presentation, he manages to present a unique entry in the genre

  • Crueler and more pessimistic than 'Train to Busan'... [Full review in Spanish]

    Dec 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Closer to suspense than to terror offering a meritorious outcome that delves deeper into moral ambiguity and portrays a crude social retrospective of class division. [Full review in Spanish]

  • Seoul Station is a superb piece of work which blurs lines between Them and Us in complex ways, breathing new life into the undead in the process. It deserves a wide audience.

Audience Reviews for Seoul Station

Following on from when I discovered Yeon Sang-Ho's dark, compelling and hugely fascinating animated feature 'King of Pigs'. He's now turned to Zombies as a subject for his next animated feature. While a lot of South Korean Animated studios help out a lot of western countries, it's refreshing to see what a locally produced animated film will be like. There's no denying that Seoul Station has the common elements most Zombie films are most attributed to, while there's plenty of tension, suspense and action, that doesn't seem to be the main focus of the narrative, instead it places some outcast like ordinary people from South Korean society and putting them up front in the race to survive the apocalypse. The animation for one is crisp and hugely impressive to watch, it could almost compete with the biggest Japanese Anime pictures sold overseas. Although the strongest aspect of this film is the characters and the overall plotting, it's unpredictable and thought provoking. Don't expect a happy ending, cause just as much as 'King of Pigs' this film is not for the faint of heart, while the pay off of characters and plotting does pay off, don't expect a pleasant closing, that's probably a the big social commentary message this film has to offer.
