Train To Busan 2 (Peninsula) Movie Review

This movie is the sequel to "Train To Busan", but both movies have no much connection so you can watch any movie first. The story starts with Gang Dong-won as Jung-Seok who is going to Japan on a ship with his sister, brother in law and nephew after South Korea is occupied by zombies. But because of one infected passenger in the ship, Jung-Seok's sister, nephew, and most other people turn into zombies. Now Jung-Seok and his brother in law are living in Hong Kong. Now after four years period one Hong Kong gangster gives one mission to Jung-Seok his brother in law and 2 other people. In this mission, these four people have to go to the Peninsula and bring the money truck back to the ship. This money truck is organized by a Hong Kong gangster team but they never came back. Now, these four people go for the mission and they meet zombies, some bad soldiers, and one family. The bad soldiers are the people who actually came to help people but they started living there because nobody came to take them. Now they turn into bad people and doing bad things. A family is a group of four people old man, a mother, and two daughters. This movie story does not feel much logical. The 1st part of Train To Busan was best if you compare this with that you will surely get disappointed. In this movie no proper character connection is made, where you not able to connect with any character and the movie only turns into a zombie chase-survival movie. If you see the 1st movie you mostly connected emotionally with the characters which makes you connected with the movie. In this movie no emotions shown properly for the characters. The location shown in the movie looks fabulous like all cars are on the road and the whole city turns into a dump yard. The VFX and action are impressed me. The VFX of zombies chase and cars killing zombies that look realistic. All actors did decent acting. Overall I this one-time watchable movie.
