Train to Busan was one of the most buzzed about zombie movies of 2016. Though it hasn’t been getting the same buzz or acclaim, it’s sequel Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula is a worthy successor.
The new film picks up four years after the first two films (the other being the darker, animated film Seoul Station). Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won) and his brother-in-law Cheol-min (Kim Do-yoon) accept a mercenary mission to travel back into zombie-infested Korea to try to recover a truck full of money. Where the titular train of the first film forced the action into tight spaces, the third lets the characters run, shoot, and drive around an entire zombie-infested city.
