I never saw Train to Busan in a theater. I caught it on streaming in HD but perhaps I missed something. Well Go USA’s 4K edition of Train to Busan is the visceral experience for which the film is legendary.
Before the train itself, you’ll see desolate quarantine zones with bright orange hazmat jerseys. The characters begin in a mundane office with black shirts and white ties. The light blue uniforms of the train staff pop.
When you see the infected, the makeup and their chowing down on the passengers is as gruesome as you could hope for in 4K. The picture really holds up when the train goes through tunnels.
The sound mix creates an enveloping environment too. You’ll hear the train chugging in the background,, panicked passengers clamoring all around and the compartment doors opening and shutting. Definitely worth the upgrade for Busan fans and first timers will have a maximum experience.
