Very cool movie. The world is very interesting and fleshed out with cool touches. Some may not like where the story ends up but you'll enjoy the ride

Curtis: "A thousand people in an iron box. No food, no water. After a month we ate the weak. You know what I hate about myself? I know what people tastes like....I know that babies taste best". The story is about a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. This has to be the most original and the most well directed film that I've seen this year. The action scenes was well shot and Chris Evans was brilliant in this film. The rest of the cast did a excellent job in they roles. Overall Snowpiercer is a awesome movie with a great story.

I'm still on a high after this film. I'll review it more in depth later. But wow, just amazing. Rarely do we get such exhilaration and originality, but this film has both, and even more. Don't miss it.

Snowpiercer is a Supertrain for Sure

Joon-ho Bong essentially turns a tired trope (the post-apocalyptic future) on its head in a wonderful, wicked and semi-serious tale of a future in which to prevent global warming, we bring on a second ice age and the remnants of mankind now reside on a trans-continental train with a perpetual engine. The haves live in luxury in the front - complete with dental care, schools, sushi, rave clubs, meat and all manner of amenities. Those in the back subsist on protein bars (believe me, you do NOT want to know what's in them) - which is a step up from cannibalism. Tilda Swinton is excellent (and nearly unrecognizable) as the front-train representative forced to deal with the dregs while Chris Evans is fine as the back-train resistance leader. Turns from Ed Harris, John Hurt and Korean actors K...

WhatKorean dystopia fiction looks like onscreen

Alison Pill has a cameo playing a pregnant teacher wielding a machine gun that is knifed in the heart after leading a trippy singalong.

That is but one of the flat-out bizarre and off-the-wall moments that happen in Snowpiercer, a very very strange but furious blend of sci-fi dystopia, social commentary, and balls-to-the-wall action.
Economically filmed and directed in a restrained manner that is refreshing compared to most Hollywood action films, the script moves from point A to point B but it's never the same in each train car as a long-simmering rebellion explodes in the tail section (led by Chris Evans) and makes its way to an intense climax.
The cast is excellent, especially Chris Evans and his primary antagonist played by an unrecognizable Tilda Swinton. There's more noteworth...

A 'Best Of' Dystopian Movie Compilation

'Snowpiercer' is an awesome work of originality. It's original in the way it combines multiple genre exercises into a collective piece of excitement. This is a new spin on the 'dystopian future' type of setting. It's themes cover all societal issues you can think of, feeding them into one slick and cohesive plot that is ripe with action and much visual stimulation. Though, it's intentions are more under-the-surface and present for those who pick up on them. No overbearing messages here. It doesn't waste time with needless explanations, character backstories, or world building. My only quibble is the ending that leaves too many questions. The scenes involving the hero's final confrontation with the supposed 'villain' didn't quite give me what I was expecting from the journey before...

The buzz on this one is terrific right now - luckily I think it survived good ole "Harvey Scissorhands" and has survived mostly intact. If it actually plays in my area, I would certainly check it out - but likely I'll have to wait for home viewing. And yes, Joon-ho Bong is an excellent director (form his films I have seen) and I highly recommend his work.
