    • Excerpt: …this zombie adventure tale by way of “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,” AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ and countless videogames is entertaining enough, but its pretentious U.S. title of “Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula” promises more than it delivers.

    • Excerpt: Known in the U.S. as Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula, the highly-anticipated sequel sadly suffers from a horrible case of “Sequelitis,” abandoning pretty much everything that made its predecessor a brilliant zombie thriller. Favoring visuals and action over substance and a strong narrative, the same filmmakers heavily borrow from other zombie flicks to deliver a rather dull story driven by an eye-rolling, saccharine-rich center that’s more woefully laughable than tearfully poignant.
  • Richard Gray @ The Reel Bits
    • Excerpt: The highly-anticipated sequel to zombie Train to Busan delivers the goods, even if the tone and pace are completely different to its predecessor.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: The film has its own brand of cleverness that makes it an enjoyable watch.

    • Excerpt: While it may have shortcomings in character depth and storytelling, ‘Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula’ never bores or loses the audience’s attention.
