    WOW! Truly one of the best films in the zombie genre and I say that as someone who don't like fast zombies. The direction by Sang-ho Yeon and script from Yeon andJoo-Suk Park was perfect from beginning to end. The action set pieces were unforgettable. The cast was top notch. Special shout out to Gong Yoo (new fan here) as father Seok-woo and Dong-seok Ma, father to be Sang-hwa, and Su-an Kim who played Gong's daughter Soo-an. Su-an gave one…

The performances were great though, especially Jennifer Lawrence.
