About this movie

Four years after South Korea's total decimation in TRAIN TO BUSAN, the zombie thriller that captivated audiences worldwide, acclaimed director Yeon Sang-ho brings us PENINSULA, the next nail-biting chapter in his post-apocalyptic world. Jung-seok, a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, relives the horror when assigned to a covert operation with two simple objectives: retrieve and survive. When his team unexpectedly stumbles upon survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best-or worst-of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.

It was kinda mid tbh. The emotional scenes weren't as impactful as they should've been. Some of the deaths really came down to who took the shot or reacted fastest. I wish I knew more about the family. I did enjoy the action scenes, especially the car chases. The mom and oldest daughter were the best! That one jump scare in the beginning of the evacuation lol

How did we go from this intense thriller survival film about a few people on a train trying to survive, to this action packed over the top apocalypse film that looks like it should be a 28 weeks sequel? The atmosphere of the original is gone, completely. Instead they filled the spot with guns and over the top violence. The 1st film wasnt on such a large scale, which made the characters more relatable. These are all throw away characters. Just another failed sequel.

3 and a half out of 5. Train To Busan Presents: Penisula does not have the feels most of the time of the original, is a bit of a mess, and the car bump turn sequences.... You'll see.... Are a bit cheesy yet wild. Other scenes work like an Arena type thing but that also is a little messy maybe. The ending sequence is where this one really shines however. This film can get boring, but it's decent enough. It works and doesn't work. It has the thrill though and emotions still enough.
