That leaves us with a solid but less compelling work in his growing filmography that satisfies neither as art or entertainment.

While not exactly as intriguing and powerful as his previous animated features, Seoul Station still offers visuals and a narrative in perpetual, gripping motion.

March 19, 2020 | Full Review…

At times it is oppressively morose, but it has a nice dusting of social realism to go with the violence, and reaches an agreeably nasty conclusion.

A morbid critique on the horrifying ways humanity can turn on itself. [Full Review in Spanish]

Seoul Station succeeds on its unfriendly characters, sustained discomfort and, above all, an unforgiving diagnosis of the moral misery of a society that perhaps was already living its well-deserved Apocalypse inside. [Full Review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Seoul Station

Following on from when I discovered Yeon Sang-Ho's dark, compelling and hugely fascinating animated feature 'King of Pigs'. He's now turned to Zombies as a subject for his next animated feature. While a lot of South Korean Animated studios help out a lot of western countries, it's refreshing to see what a locally produced animated film will be like. There's no denying that Seoul Station has the common elements most Zombie films are most attributed to, while there's plenty of tension, suspense and action, that doesn't seem to be the main focus of the narrative, instead it places some outcast like ordinary people from South Korean society and putting them up front in the race to survive the apocalypse. The animation for one is crisp and hugely impressive to watch, it could almost compete with the biggest Japanese Anime pictures sold overseas. Although the strongest aspect of this film is the characters and the overall plotting, it's unpredictable and thought provoking. Don't expect a happy ending, cause just as much as 'King of Pigs' this film is not for the faint of heart, while the pay off of characters and plotting does pay off, don't expect a pleasant closing, that's probably a the big social commentary message this film has to offer.
