Peninsula Is A Decent-ish Zombie Flick With A Good Measure Of Action & Crime

Train to Busan had a unique set-up to a good zombie film. Peninsula is more of a stand-alone zombie-dystopia film than a sequel to Train to Busan and a good one at that. It’s been quite a while since the Korean peninsula was taken over by the zombie virus. However, they are a few survivors who wish to cross the border and reach Hong Kong for a relatively normal future. An army man from Korea loses his family and his sense of purpose when he loses his family to the virus on their way to Hong Kong. He is then employed by a local goon to retrieve some money from Korea and he has to fight zombies…and worse.

The storytelling is tight, like its predecessor

Just like TTB, Peninsula tackles the zombie apocalypse with an underlying loose theme of parenthood and family. Here, apart from the zombies, the film also has human villains with malicious intent looking to thrive in a dystopian world. The story progresses well with a mix of interesting characters and plot lines. Peninsula supports a good story with enjoyable visuals.

The guns certainly add more to the action fun

Now that everyone knows what they’re dealing with, people are armed and equipped to deal with the undead. They have protocols (quite Zombieland-esque) and that is quite fun to watch.

The end is slightly melodramatic but satisfactory

Peninsula has a more production-heavy and stylized feel than the predecessor. This also spills over to the script and the climax is slightly melodramatic but it is a satisfying one. Peninsula culminates into an enjoyable affair overall.


If zombie thrillers and dystopia-based films is something you enjoy, Peninsula makes for a good watch. It is action-packed, content-backed and slick with interesting characters.
