Watched this in anticipation after the crazy trailer! The build up to the story was kinda draggy but the action scenes made up for it. The scene stealer for this movie has gotta be Lee Re! SHE WAS AMAZING!! Disappointed that this movie didn’t live up to the hype around TTB but nonetheless a commendable film. The ending was definitely my favourite scene :”)
The plot is more complicated (necessarily so, considering the movie takes place 4 years after the zombie outbreak) and the action sequences pack a greater punch. Forget about comparing Peninsula to the first Train to Busan film and come to the theatre with an open mind. If you enjoy zombie thrillers, this one is just about as compelling as any other.
If you are looking for something that’s as thought provoking as the first film, look somewhere else. This production is good at best, and you can feel strongly that they film it just for the sake of doing so.
This movie is a spiritual sequel to the 2015 movie Train to Busan. I've had a fair share of experiences when it comes to bad movie sequels so I went in with that in mind and unfortunately, I was right. The story was stale and the characters were not well developed. It was difficult to feel for the characters that by the end of the movie, I left the theater with more questions than answers.
