User Reviews

They Bow a Lot!
3 April 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

Seoul Station can be seen as a standalone vision for the zombie apocalypse genre or a decent start of a franchise, focusing on a random girl without any solid back story and asking the audience to care about her is quite daring, Hye Sun is a runaway girl who's going through financial problems and living with an abusive boyfriend, as if things can't get worse she gets dumped by her boyfriend and thrown in the streets the night the zombie virus breaks lose, the film depicts her survival story from the beginning to the end.

The animation is acceptable in its quality although I felt the character design as well as the flow of animation could've been much better. The plot story is fine yet a bit dragging at moments with some unrealistic stupid actions from the protagonist but having a twisted and unpredictable ending was a satisfying enough to pull the whole thing together.
