The zombie genre is so worn out that even the most popular zombie thing this decade, The Walking Dead, has just repeated some form of "The people are the REAL monsters" since shortly after the opening scene of the pilot. But don't let that get in the way of you watching Train To Busan, one of the most relentless, claustrophobic, and downright badass zombie films I've ever seen. This one comes from South Korea, and it helped one of its actors, Ma Dong-seok, become a star over there. And when you watch Train To Busan -- which, by the way, is about fast zombies crowded onto a speeding train -- it's easy to see why.
Ma is a gruff, beefy blue-collar worker who just wants to protect his pregnant wife from zombies. And he does so by punching, kicking, and body-slamming them through multiple train cars. It's like everyone else thought they were in a zombie movie, and Ma was told that it was his superhero origin story. He's incredible, and we should all play a drinking game in which we take a shot every time he's awesome. Of course, we'd die, but WE'D DIE HAPPY.
