Train to Busan: Top 5 Flaws


Love it or hate it? I LOVE IT! But I won't be talking what I love about it. I think it's pretty obvious if you googled out or read the reviews about it. Honestly, I'd suggest you to just watch it - like go buy a movie ticket for whatever next screening available for you!

Well, I don't do vlogs, as I'm a nervous-wreck in front of cameras, so this will be in a written form instead. If you don't like it, there's always the X button at the top right of the tab/window. Feel free to comment below on your thoughts about the movies, or if you found more flaws about the movie.

**Beware of Spoiler Alert**

#5 First Zombie Onboard!

Saw how the first zombie got onboard the train without anyone noticing? The Train Attendant didn't feel anyone moving behind him, or the loud stump the person-before-turned-into-zombie made? As the person-before-turned-into-zombie was "its" way trough the carriage, no one felt suspicious at all? That's one super effective biological weapon there!

#4 Zombie's Nature

The zombies are portrayed to be highly sensitive to noise, and they react at the sight of a human. They have poorer sensitivity to light as compared to humans, therefore in very dim light, they are not able to detect humans. How do instinctively detect human? Not by smell nor heat senses definitely, otherwise all the human characters would have been long dead.

#3 The Escape Plan

I get that they want to go to somewhere safe. But, it's not really a battle against time so why the rush? They had already identify the zombie's reaction to human sight, available light and sound. One of the main character (before he turned into a zombie and jump off the train) was able to calm down to figure out the routing of the train and plan their way through the carriages to get the other survivors. Shouldn't he also be able to come out with a plan to hide away from plain sight? There are a lot of materials to build a cloak-like cover.

#2 Evil IS Dumb AF

Trying to get rid of some people because they might be a threat, is an naturally acceptable act of fear. But why would you lock them in a safer location than where you're at, and not put yourself there in the first place? Let's do a quick recap. There are 3 carriages, in an orderly manner, at this point of context: A. Carriage with Zombies, B. Carriage with survivors, C. Carriage with outcasted survivors. (C is furthest away from A, while B is just after A) See the picture now? So, ladies and gentlemen, here's the unexpected outcome! The evil "geniuses" were busy securing the joint-point of carriage B&C, instead of fortifying the joint-point of carriage A&B. Thus, allowing a suicidal old lady to bring a WTF-moment into the story!

#1 It Ain't Safe Until The Young Lady Sings!

The golden moment goes to the young girl who sang at the ending moment, indirectly signaling to the military personnel that she and the pregnant lady were in no doubt humans. So the billion dollar question is: Who taught/told her to sing for safety? I'm assuming she knew (or someone knew) that it's safe to sing! Like we didn't already know that sound attracts zombie, regardless of light's presence. The young girl knew it was her fatal mistake that contributed to her dad turning into a zombie, and by any means, anyone with that experience would remain silent after a long and loud cry. Even the military was covertly operating as silently and distantly from the gate as possible. Mind blowing instinct she has, doesn't she!

And there you have, the Top 5 Flaws of the hottest Korean movie in town, Train To Busan!
