I had so much fun with this movie, it was only playing in a theatre a half an hour drive away from where I live so I drove to the theatre and was blown away by just how good it was.
The animation was amazing. It’s was fluid, kinetic and very crisp and detailed. I was a bit hesitant on watching it at first, since I knew this movie would hold some major spoilers for the seiries, and I’ve only watched the first episode of the anime show since I’ve only known about it for a week since discovering it on Netflix. This movie does have major spoilers though, but I encourage you to see this in a theatre as soon as you can if tv spoilers bother you or not.
I was worried that the whole movie being set on a train would get stale fast, but it is always exciting and doesn’t drag a bit. If watching Train To Busan taught me anything, it’s that movies set in limited spaces such as trains can still be constantly exciting if it stays engaging. This movie just like Train To Busan isn’t entirely set on the train, there are flashbacks and an action sequence seperate from the train.
Anyway this was an exceptional movie with very good direction and animation. It was thrilling and also very emotional. Don’t miss this one.
