Train to Busan

Train to Busan ★★★★

Breathes some degree of life into this increasingly soporific genre not so much by adding anything very new to it, but simply by organizing some expertly-staged set pieces that make very effective use of the constrictive spaces onboard the train, interrupted by some impressive crowd scenes in and around the stations. Characters are drawn just sharply enough to care about what happens, even though the ways in which they are taken down one by one are transparently mechanical.
