Snowpiercer Review!

Snowpiercer, you incredible beast. Why can’t I get this movie out of my brain!? I’ll tell you why; because Snowpiercer is the best thing I have seen all year. I just want to watch it over and over again because I am sure there are things that I’ve missed and are hidden through out the film.

Snowpiercer takes place in a world where a failed attempt to kerb global warming has resulted in the on-set of an ice age. All life, all human life, has been extinguished save for those who had made it onto a self-sustaining train that operates on an annual loop. The Bong Joon-ho directed film follows Curtis (Chris Evans) and his fellow allies at the back of the train as they struggle for equality with those at the front of the train.

The film is beautiful, brutal and at times unexpected.

Follow me under the cut for an examination of this fantastic film. I’ll warn before moving to spoilers!
