★★★★ review by Chico Fireman on Letterboxd
Antes de comandar "Invasão Zumbi", o coreano Sang-ho Yeon dirigiu as animações "O Rei dos Porcos" e "The Fake", trabalhos com temática adulta. Para seu primeiro trabalho com atores de carne e osso, ele pegou emprestado muito da lógica de seus longas anteriores, mas teve que atenuar a violência gráfica ou não de algumas sequências. "Seoul Station" é um prequel animado de seu filme mais famoso. Mostra como a epidemia de zumbis chega à estação de onde parte o trem para Busan. Em seguida, encontra outros personagens e contra outras histórias a partir da mesma premissa. Em comparação, "Seoul Station" é mais cruel, impiedoso e violento com seus protagonistas. Sang-ho Yeon não tem pudores e levar sua histórias às últimas consequências. O traço é mais simples do que nossos olhos estão acostumados, mas a caracterização dos zumbis é muito boa e os limites de violência bem maiores.
★★★½ review by Peter Valerio on Letterboxd
Cool animation and zombie carnage. Boy, for a zombie movie that begins with the overlooked fringes of society, things get pretty dark by the end. This is a pretty good (if much bleaker) prequel/companion to Train to Busan.
★★★½ review by samirakhtar on Letterboxd
Train to Busan's animated predecessor. There are some great scenes, plenty of action, a touching human tale, the same fast rabid zombies and top notch animation. It easily stands up as a film on it's own.
★★★★ review by jesse hicks on Letterboxd
wow very dark
as a companion piece to Last Train To Busan this works very well because it is nothing like it at all except that it has zombies in Korea. very sad and dark, great weird animation and a really good soundtrack !
recommend if you like animated movies.
★★★½ review by Jye Briscoe on Letterboxd
Train to Busan was one of my favourite films of last year, so when I found out that this animated film was a slightly connected prequel to it from the same director, I was interested.
Well, Seoul Station is definitely not as good as Train to Busan, but it is still quite good and pretty intense. The animation style is a little off-putting at first, but you'll slowly get used to it as the film goes along.
The biggest downside that it has against it is that it's a little slow. It does take a while to actually get going, but once it does, it remains a pretty thrilling ride.
