A capable and polished historical thriller, which just needed to be a fair bit shorter and tighter, but I guess the Koreans like 'em lengthy these days and who am I to tell them otherwise? There was superb acting, cinematic set-pieces, and a good sense of pacing in certain sections, although I could not keep a grasp on the plot all the way through (similar problem as Internal Affairs). Several gruesome scenes which felt a bit forced. Less is more, guys?

plot ve karakterler yeterince gelişmiş olmasa da sanki bu, filmin mevzusu sebebiyle bilinçli yapılan, *kahraman* addedilenleri her iki taraftan yapılacak okumaya oturacak biçimde sıradanlaştırma amaçlı bir hamle gibi duruyor. kamera kullanımı, görüntü yönetmenliği ve set ve sanat tasarımıyla verilen dönem hissi harika. fakat fazla janjanlı ambalajlanmış gel-geç seyirlik hissi bir şekilde sabit. buna rağmen son zamanların en iyi espiyonaj filmlerinden biri.

Takes its time in setting up the plot and half establishing the characters. With that sort of complete, tAoS moves on to the meatier end of the film, which begins close to the hour mark and comes with smoother pacing/ heightened immersion - the train sequence being the highlight by far. Compare this to the depiction of the revolutionaries in 'The Baader Meinhof Complex' and you can see a kind of vulgar (or simple) grandioseness in tAoS.

Class Korean resistance thriller. Yoo Gong of Train to Busan (2016) ends up on another gruesome train ride. This time being chased by Japanese bastard instead of zombies! Suspenseful stuff nicely packaged in a wonderfully polished production. For some reason it's really vague early on as to the dangers. Pays slightly off at the end, but it would have been so much better if you really felt their struggle instead of trying to figure out what the hell was going on half the time.

I was rather disappointed by this one. I expected to love it given the talent involved. Still pretty good but could have been great. video review: https://youtu.be/4YY6JoRiVl4

Ji-woon Kim made one of my favourite ever films. This time around, I just don't feel he got the balance right. Action is there - yes, the tangents in between are either lackluster or barely audible.
