All Critics (107) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (57) | Rotten (50)

  • It's a sequel suffering from all the things sequels tend to suffer from: familiar tropes, an explosion in special effects, and thematic weightlessness. Now it's bigger, shaggier, and far less focused.

    November 11, 2020 | Rating: 2/5
  • A film about a virus-ravaged country under lockdown should be able to hit cogent parallels at will at the moment - but a numbing repetition is sadly the main payout.

  • If you don't expect a Busan re-run, you should find something in this.

  • It becomes really numbing and boring after a while.

    September 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Peninsula suffers the same type of sequelitis that suggests a second entry must be more/bigger/louder than its predecessor.

  • Peninsula couldn't possibly have lived up to Train to Busan... Nevertheless, even with lowered expectations, Yeon's follow-up is a disappointment, from the pointless story to the zombies, who somehow have less character development than before.

Audience Reviews for Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula

  • Sep 05, 2020
    Mad Max Thunderdome meets zombie apocalypse for a strangely less than competent followup to Train to Busan. Whereas the first was a slow descent into hysteria, this is more of a controlled and typical b-movie survival situation. There's mucho shouting, shooting and a couple of chase scenes, but gone is the intrinsic fear of simply getting bit that made the first so visceral.
