All Critics (107) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (100) | Rotten (7)

  • In visual terms, the film is mesmerising. The actual horror scenes are not overly gory, and the chase scenes are excellently choreographed and filled with pure adrenaline, leaving you waiting for the next twist and turn with bated breath.

    November 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The bad stuff can be ignored and the good stuff is so, so good...the terror is nuanced and visceral, a gut reaction to the scale and speed of the attacks on screen.

    October 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There is much to enjoy here, but is there ever really any justification for a two-hour long zombie movie? Train To Busan argues not.

    October 7, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Yeon Sang-ho directs a film, which definitely moves towards being a blockbuster, but manages to induce it with a number of elements that make it much more meaningful than the majority of zombie and action films

    October 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The amount of energy that director Yeon Sang-ho is able to infuse into Train to Busan is a welcome change from the stop and go nature of recent entries in the genre.

    August 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • No matter what angle you're looking at this from, we've seen it before.

Audience Reviews for Train to Busan (Busanhaeng)

  • Dec 02, 2018
    Very creepy, tense from start to finish.

    With a couple of the zombie movies I've watched recently, I've found myself able to go so far in my reviews as to credit the films for some modicum of surprise originality, alongside a rating of four of five out of ten. But it has been years since I've been able to say that I saw a zombie movie I genuinely and wholeheartedly enjoyed. Or I should say, it had been years, right up until last night when I saw Train to Busan.

    It is amazing to see what can still be done in films about the living dead taking over the world, and this is not only a tense and exhilarating movie like Snowpiercer with zombies but also - and most importantly - an intelligent social commentary in the best tradition of the kind.
