The Flu, I think, can be compared to the best disaster movies I’ve seen. Sure, its small scale in terms of location since it only covers a city with a half a million population, but because of the area’s proximity to the the capital city of Seoul, the sense of urgency automatically magnifies ten-fold.

All in all, director Yeon Sang-ho’s Train to Busan was a well executed zombie movie that offered more than the usual scares. It adds value to the genre by appealing to the emotions of the audience, making it more effective than expected. The good news is its still showing in some cinemas so its not yet too late to catch the last trip (Sorry, I’ll stop with these puns now) and leave you to decide how to feel about it.
