    Although it lacks the layers evident in Yeon’s acclaimed animations (including the thematically-linked Seoul Station), this is still an entertaining ride, as well as providing political commentary when it overtly references the Korean government’s response to the MERS virus alongside commenting on the country’s class system. show more

    Best of all, the story moves as fast as that bullet train, careening from one impossible predicament to the next while the characters jostle to survive. show more
