AsSalam and hello.
have you watched Train to Busan? the one that has that movie poster of hot Gong Yoo carrying a little girl with the lovable Jung Yumi behind him running with him from behind? and with some trains and explosions at the background? and if you notice, there might also be hundreds of zombies at the back.
yeah. this one.
oh there's also Sohee, Choi Wooshik and the brilliant Ma Dong Seok in the poster.
i'm not a fan of zombies. really. excluding the sequel of that Maze Runner movie, i kinda hate every zombie movies out there. the last one that i remember that i actually like is Night of the Living Dead, which is brilliant.
but this Train to Busan tho, might have top it. it was brilliant! it was thrilling! i knew i would like it, but i was actually avoiding it cos i don't like zombies who eat human flesh scenes. to be honest, i'm not a fan of horror movie or any ridiculous movies like Final Destination.
but if you're a Game of Thrones fan, those brutal scenes are nothing after all.
this movie, this Train to Busan movie is just different. it was like i was riding a roller coaster for 2 hours when i saw it. i couldn't keep quietly at my seat. my sister also didn't sit quietly cos both of us were just so nervous. i love that thrilling feeling. it was awesome.
Ma Dong Seok tried to punch a zombie, ooh, i even moved my body.
Gong Yoo tried to escape, ooh i made an escape move.
it was awesome. it was fantastic.
it wasn't so much of the actors or the storyline that made me excited. it was the feeling that i got when i watched it. the actors are brilliant, every Korean movie fans know that. but the characters's desperation to survive is just so strong, you end up feeling intrigued by it.
and the sacrifice. wow the sacrifice. you see how much impact a person's kindness can do to a person. it was sweet, sad and wow.
i haven't had this kind of feeling when i see something. i think the last time i had this much impact might be after i watched The Princess Man.
you have to thank Korean directors for knowing how to make a person absorbs in things.
