It’s like ‘Train to Busan’ but Japanese

TL;DR – Same same but different. 

Remember Korean blockbuster movie Train to Busan?


Honestly, how could we? It’s so bad it’s so good – ErrI meant to say it’s so good it’s bad – but anyway, if you can’t get enough of it, there’s the Japanese movie ‘I am a Hero’.

Based on the popular manga series with the same title by Hanazawa Kengo, the plot summary kindly provided by Tomoya Okazaki : Remie Jordan basically goes like this,

A mysterious virus suddenly spreads throughout Japan causing widespread panic. People infected with the virus are called ZQN. The ZQN attacks people with superhuman strength and their victims will also become ZQNs. Hideo Suzuki happens to meet a female high school student, Hiromi Hayakari. They ran away from the city together, but Hiromi has already been bitten by a baby ZQN. The baby ZQN however did not have any teeth and Hiromi is in half state of being a ZQN. They then meet Nurse Yabu at a shelter. Yabu hopes she can draw an antibody from Hiromi.

Same same but different.

The movie has since ended its run in Singapore but I’m pretty sure you can get it around.
