There’s only one aspect of Korea’s Gangnam Zombie that’s even remotely interesting, and it happens right at the beginning. Well…almost at the beginning. First, we have to sit through a prologue that features the film’s protagonists running from undead hordes until one of them appears to be taken down. But it doesn't really create any anticipatory tension because we've seen set-ups like this a million times before and are already certain of its outcome.
Then the story flashes back 24 hours to the one interesting part…the origin of the virus that triggers the zombie outbreak in the first place. It’s caused by a stray cat who scratches a pretty thief trying to rob a truck. This amusing moment suggests maybe the movie is gonna have some fun with the genre by turning traditional tropes on their ear.
