Fifth about The Seventh

Train to Busan (Busanhaeng)

Train to BusanTrain to Busan: the plot of Yeon Sang-ho’s film is as simple as they come, and so is what’s at stake at any given moment. It would not be nearly as engaging and entertaining if the characters were not attractive; they are simple (the action is too fast and the pauses too brief for them to be anything else), but well-defined for what they are supposed to be (the exception being the villain, who is too hollow). Yoo Gong and Ma Dong-seok are effective in their roles; Kim Soo-an is very lovely. The action is well-choreographed and easy to follow; part of the reason is the way it’s shot by Lee Hyung-deok and edited by Yang Jin-mo. The make-up work is also top-notch.
