Kwon Hae-hyo · Kim Min-Jae · Koo Kyo-hwan
is the true sequel to TRAIN
TO BUSAN [in numerous countries, the Japanese film I
AM A HEROwas repackaged and promoted as the sequel]. The film takes place in
a post-zombie world, four years after the events of the first movie. The
Korean peninsula has been devastated by the plague and the nation is quarantined.
An ex-soldier, Jung Seok, now lives in Hong Kong where he is constantly
in fear of being deported. He reluctantly accepts a job from a Triad boss:
take charge of a mission that will infiltrate zombie-infected Seoul to
retrieve a lost shipment of 20 million dollars, with a promise of the
survivors receiving half the loot.
The film is more action-oriented than the original movie with
massive game-like set pieces - essentially a maze runner story
- certain to please younger audiences. Interestingly, the heart of Yeon
Sang-Ho's story is remarkably similar to the pair of excellent Taiwanese
Xtreme horror flicks from a few years back ZOMBIE
108 and ZOMBIE
