    After years and years of crappy Zombie films, this one really DO look promising.
    Hope the Koreans can bring some new blood to the genre.

    Saw this at a film fest last month and really really liked it. Lots of action, likeable/dislikable characters, it's smart, funny, and scary, and the ending actually got me a little misty eyed. Well worth the ride.

    Sounds promising. I'm not gonna watch the trailer though- I like seeing movies completely fresh.

    Excellent movie. Really fun. I agree that this is the best zombie film released in the past few years as well. Acting and story were strong traits as well.

    Got to see this at my film festival last week. We showed it twice to very enthusiastic crowds. I liked it, although it didn't break a lot of new ground. I just enjoy movies set on trains, for the claustrophobic nature.

    It was pretty good, feels like a much better World War Z

    Keep hearing great things about this. My exposure to Asian cinema is limited, when compared to Western/Euro so I plan to give this a shot.

    It keeps finding it's way to top ten lists everywhere. I cannot wait for it's release. Day one purchase for me. It looks really good, even if it's nothing new, it's nice to see a different country's view on a zombie outbreak.

    I watched this last night, WOW, what a movie, what a roller-coaster ride, with such an emotional final 20 mins, I was drained after watching, not had this kind of feeling from a horror movie in some time.

    I can't recommended this one enough to any one here who has not had a chance to view it yet.

    Based on reviews and comments here I checked this out on Netflix. I may have once again had too high of expectations from what everyone is saying as I didn't find it to be all that outstanding. It did have a few likable characters and one certainly VERY unlikable, but it felt a bit too long to me. I am glad it was brought to my attention though as it was certainly a decent watch, but I won't be purchasing the film as I feel it doesn't have much replay value.

    I agree that the film was too long. It did have some nice scenes and if Netflix hadn't offered it I would have bought the blu. Worth watching but I can live without buying it.
