If you are going into the cinemas with the mindset that Peninsula is the sequel of Train to Busan, you will be hugely disappointed.

Peninsula is set four years after the events of the first film, Train to Busan. With new faces that now live in the zombie-ravaged world, our characters must fight to escape from their now decimated home.

Our main character, Jung-seok, is a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland four years ago. Still, now he must relive the horror when he is ‘assigned’ to a covert operation with two simple objectives: retrieve the money and survive.

Movie-goers will know that this simple plan will not go smoothly as Jung-seok and his team stumbles upon survivors that are thought to be non-existent in this forsaken land. With the help of the stranded survivors inside South-Korea, they must all find a way out together while avoiding the hordes of zombie and an unexpected enemy.

Fans of Train to Busan might be disappointed with its successor Peninsula. I felt that the movie did not live up to the anticipation and hype that it was supposed to bring after a long four years wait. While the first film focused on surviving against the outbreak of zombies, Peninsula was like a mashup of Fast & Furious X James Bond. In the second film, it felt like they forgot that humans needed to work together to survive against hordes of zombies as there was too many action scene where it was humans against humans.

Although the movie wasn’t fantastic, credit must be given where its due. The most memorable scenes to me were the speed driving scenes in the film. Cinematically, the scenes were engaging, exciting, and it even kept me on the edge of my seat. 

Peninsula is a decent movie to catch on a relaxing weekend but remember, don’t go in expecting a Train to Busan 2.0.

Four years after South Korea’s decimation in Train to Busan, Train to Busan: Peninsula shows us that the whole Korean Peninsula has become a deserted land of zombies and survivors who have given up sanity in the hopeless land. The zombies are faster and even more sensitive to sound and light, and savage madness is taking place inside the mysterious Army Unit 631.

The film centers on Jung-seok (Gang Dang-won), a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, only to relive the horror when he is assigned to a covert operation with two objectives: retrieve and survive. When the team he’s equipped with leaves him standing alone, he unexpectedly stumbles upon some survivors — Min-jung (Lee Jung-hyun) and her family who rescue him. Min-jung lives with her daughter Yu-jin (Lee Ye-won) and step-daughter Joon (Lee Re) who she had rescued. An elderly former commander of Unit 631, who the girls refer to as “grandpa,” also lives with Min-jung’s family.

Train to Busan: Peninsula is directed by Yeon Sang-ho, the same man responsible for 2016’s Train to Busan. 

If you’re looking for something along the lines of Fast & Furious meets The Walking Dead then Train to Busan: Peninsula is for you. There are a number of fast car scenes in this film that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The zombies however are merely film props in this film as its the humans that are put to the test of surviving amongst themselves.

While the film is in the same universe as Train to Busan, fans of the successful predecessor film should go into Peninsula with an open mind and not try to find any connections between the two.
