The worst epidemic ever seen is sweeping through Bundang, the suburb of Seoul. After smuggling illegal immigrants into the country, Byung-woo dies from an unknown virus. Soon after that, the same symptoms are plaguing scores of residents in Bundang. People are helpless against the airborne disease and the number of infected increases quickly, spreading chaos. As the worst-case scenario precaution, the city of half a million people, just 19 kilometers from Seoul, is about to be sealed off. The government orders a complete shutdown. Meanwhile, infectious disease specialist In-hye and rescue worker Ji-goo go into the closed city to find the blood serum of the index case, a crucial part of developing the vaccine.

Pushes every single mom-button. Beware!
25 April 2015 | by aloweeceySee all my reviews

First of all, it's a good movie. It hits all the usual K-Horror tropes with actors who can act. On top of that, it possess that rare gem, a child actor who isn't annoying! She's funny and adorable and believable and I enjoyed her scenes.

So far, so good.

Then the flu hits epidemic proportions and things go to hell. Think "The Last Man on Earth" with better CGI, and government officials as weaselly and amoral as the officials in "Torchwood: Children of Earth."

Then the evil genius put his/her finger on the mom-button and left it there. If I had ANY idea of the mom-button pushing for the last half of this, I would not have watched it.

For those with no mom-buttons to push, I recommend this movie. It's terrifically frightening in a "this could happen tomorrow in real life" sense. High production values. Good acting. Good FX. Quality all around. Just beware before you press Play.
