Snowpiercer (2013)

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – After the world is plunged into an eternal winter, the few survivors live on a supertrain that transverses the globe.

My Take on it – This movie takes a very fascinating idea of a futuristic society living solely within the confines of a moving supertrain.

As the story progresses, we learn little by little about how things work on the train and the history of those living on it for 17 years irregardless of their social class.

I enjoyed learning about the characters and world they live in and was fully engrossed ontheir world the whole time.

As much as I enjoyed this movie, I constantly felt that there was something slighty missing that could have elevated it to being an excellent film instead of just a very good one.

Bottom Line – Great concept and execution. Interesting analogy of how the class system works in any society. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy

  4. Managed to get a copy of the DVD over here in the UK and it is a great film. Love the action, the social commentary on class and the acting, particularly from Evans and Swinton (who I struggled to recognise at first!). Really have to see what the graphic novel is like….
