Peninsula is a 2020 South Korean action-horror film directed by Yeon Sang-ho. It is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Train to Busan and is set four years after the events of the first film. The story revolves around Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), a former soldier who escaped the zombie-infested Korean peninsula along with his brother-in-law Chul-min (Kim Do-yoon) and his nephew Jooni (Lee Re). They have been living in Hong Kong as refugees, struggling to make ends meet.

However, they are given an opportunity to go back to Korea when they are approached by a group of people who want them to retrieve a truck filled with bags of cash that was left behind in Incheon during the early days of the outbreak. The job seems simple enough, but when they arrive in Incheon, they realize that things are not as easy as they thought.

The city has been overrun by the undead, and they soon find themselves fighting for their lives against hordes of zombies and a ruthless gang of survivors who have taken over the city. To make matters worse, they encounter a family of survivors led by Min-jung (Lee Jung-hyun), a tough and resourceful woman who has been living in the city with her two daughters.

As they navigate through the dangerous streets of Incheon, Jung-seok and his team must confront their fears and work together to survive against all odds. Meanwhile, they also have to deal with the guilt and trauma of leaving their loved ones behind and the realization that they might never see them again.

One of the key themes of the movie is the idea of redemption. Jung-seok is haunted by the memory of leaving his sister and nephew behind during the outbreak and is determined to make amends by rescuing Min-jung and her daughters. Similarly, Min-jung is seeking redemption for a tragic mistake that she made in the past and is willing to risk everything to keep her family safe.

Another prominent aspect of the movie is the exploration of the human psyche in extreme situations. The survivors in Incheon have created their own hierarchy and rules, which are often more terrifying and ruthless than the zombies themselves. The movie offers a thought-provoking commentary on the nature of humanity and how we react in times of crisis.

The movie is packed with intense action sequences and well-executed zombie attacks that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The special effects are top-notch, and the cinematography and sound design create a tense and immersive atmosphere.

Overall, Peninsula is a thrilling and thought-provoking sequel that lives up to its predecessor. It explores new themes and characters while maintaining the intense action and suspense that made Train to Busan a global phenomenon. With its high production values, strong performances, and gripping storyline, Peninsula is a must-watch for fans of the zombie genre and Korean cinema in general.

Peninsula is a 2014 special interest movie with a runtime of 55 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 51.
