Seoul Station Review: Not as great as Train to Busan, but has its own independent value.
Movie: Seoul Station (15)
TRAIN TO BUSAN turned out to be the best zombie apocalypse action thriller, in my opinion. I had never seen a film of this genre before, and thus I enjoyed it fully. Coming from the same director and called a prequel to TRAIN TO BUSAN, SEOUL STATION is a decent animated zombie horror flick, even though not as great as the former.
There's nothing to talk about the performances, given the fact that it's an animated film. The film's storyline is quite decent, and this one looks quite scary at times. The screenplay is amazingly written, and the film grips you completely.
The film doesn't have many great action sequences. There are a few but are not too great to be remembered. The animation, too is a little tacky as it lowers the impact the film would've had, had it not been animated.
But director Yeon Sang-ho holds the attention of the viewer, and delivers not only entertainment but also a hard-hitting social message as he did in TRAIN TO BUSAN. This is what makes him and films different from those of others.
SEOUL STATION is not as great as TRAIN TO BUSAN, but holds its own independent value as a film. If you'll compare it to TRAIN TO BUSAN, you might be disappointed, but if you won't, then you won't be.
