Amid busy and indifferent passers-by, a rough-looking homeless man with a bleeding neck-wound finds refuge in bustling Seoul Station. Ignored by everyone, the weary vagabond, who seems to be bitten by something, slowly succumbs to his lethal trauma and dies, only to come back as a ravenous reanimated corpse, attacking and spreading his virulent disease. Now, against the backdrop of a sudden zombie outbreak, three lucky survivors--the teenager runaway, Hye-Sun; her layabout boyfriend, Ki-woong, and her desperate father, Suk-gyu--fight tooth-and-nail to reunite. But, this is only the first night of the unforeseen epidemic, and all hope seems lost. Are the walking dead the only monsters?Written by
While others not only boarded but also ride the Train to Busan (title of the live action picture), we also get this animated feature which plays in the same "universe" as the other movie. Having said that, you do get different characters in the starring roles and a movie that does indulge in what would happen if a zombie epidemic hit a city. Relationships between characters and story-lines begin to unfold, as much as some of the human psyche is.
It's a nice little add-on or spin off to Train to Busan, but it's not a must watch to get the other movie or vice versa. It's also very explicit with its violence as is the other movie and we get a lot of action scenes too. It does get a bit cliché here and there (father/daughter story) and has some minor flaws along the way. Even so it is more than entertaining to watch
