That rare experience you don't get to have much in the summer anymore, a loud, clanging, original action flick that's grabbing you by the lapels and yelling in your ears.
It's a wicked, violent parable, and one of the only movies of the summer worth talking about after the credits roll.
"Snowpiercer" warms the heart, but doesn't penetrate it.
Fueled by implausibility, and for a good portion of the ride much better for it, Bong-Joon Ho's Snowpiercer posits a nonstop, Earth-encircling train containing the microcosmic survivors of a...
Once Mr. Bong sets his monorail in motion the movie assumes an irresistible momentum, accelerated by nonstop mayhem, gallows humor and an immersive visual style that possesses a heady sense of the...
This is powerful stuff, and all the more so for its straightforwardness.

Ridiculous This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. From the get go I had absolutely zero connection with the characters, and the plot was so predictable. It kind of pulled a lot of aspects from great movies like Apocalypse Now where the crazy genius we've heard so much about finally shows up on the screen. It was so painfully obvious what this director was trying to do, therefore it was also painfully obvious where he failed. I have watched alot of dumb movies in my time, but this one takes the cake.
Other than the cast and very good acting, their talent in my opinion,was a waste in this particular movie. Never judge a movies by the cover, synopsis and thr actors/actresses in it. I wanted to watch this for two reasons: Chris Evans and the movie being a post apocalyptic movie. The movie is slow, certain parts are good, some parts are bad. The thing that makes post apocalyptic movies good is survival at all odds, and hope. This film is very dark in mood and seems to be a political protest or conspiracy theory film suggesting this is how the world works. I am very displeased with the film and hype it was given for the actors, especially Chris Evans, though it is a poor movie. If this is anything like the book, well, it was a waste. I was so disappointed in the absent balance of character development and back story. A lot of plot holes, and a lot of bad characters. It is a great film though for certain moods, just not really for any of mine. God Bless you.
Worst sci-fi film since Avatar! Had such high hopes for this. Not since that sci-fi travesty called Avatar have I facepalmed so much during a movie. Full of plot holes, inconsistencies, bad and predictable "twists", and foreshadowing that plays out like a bull in a China shop. If you like this movie I seriously doubt your ability to think logically, as everything that happens is an affront to common sense. It's just... awful. Awful in every way a movie can be.
Meh. There's a reason Western movies are somewhat formulaic - because that formula tends to work. This is very much an Eastern film. I must give credit to this film for being new and inventive, but I was uninterested. With no characters to root for and a choppy pacing, it was difficult to invest 2 hours into this movie. I fell asleep the first time I watched it and thought that I had missed a large portion... the second time I saw it, I realized that it didn't matter. You can see the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes and still get the same effect. Don't waste your time.
Like a grotesque exploitation video game I understand why this movie is a cult favorite, but I don't understand why that cult is so large. It has an interesting premise with a nice twist at the end, but the train setting combined with the major violence makes it feel like you're in a video game. The protagonist and his team move car by car from the back to the front of the train. In each car, there is a violent brawl with lots of casualties followed by some challenge (and info gather) in order to get the next door open. Gets exhausting over time.
People are dumb. Don't listen to people bashing the movie. They are mouth-breathers. They try to sound smart with phrases such as "plot devices" and other vague movie review lingo that they copied off other actual film critics. The movie is entertaining. That is all it was ment for. People read wayyyyy too much into things. Not every movie is trying to sweep the Oscars. Take movies for what they are worth. Someone even bashed Tilda Swinton for her over-acting her character. She is supposed to be obsurd and over the top!
What did I miss? At best this is a live action, dystopic anime with Marxist overtones. At worst, it's stylised junk. Either way, there isn't much of a plot. I kept waiting for an interesting twist, never came, just one trope after another. Do yourself a favor and go read a few of the negative reviews over at rotten tomatoes first!
The fight choreography was decent. This movie fails for the same reason Elysium did. It tries too hard to be preachy on social issues and ends up tripping all over itself in the process. The fights were decently choreographed, but the setting was repetitive and boring, and the villains were caricatures rather than believable antagonists. There was a lot of potential here, but it did not live up to it.
Decent allegory. This film is enjoyable cerebrally... There are plot holes and problems but I liked the direction and the theme... Even if a bit clichéd with a (spoilers ahead) matrix sequel human culling master plan where everyone is a pawn and the whole disdainful upper class and sympathetic lower class. If you can get over the fact that nobody was maintaining the railroad tracks, or the question of "why a train?" The engine surely could have had better uses. I'm sure that's the point though, meant in allegory.
This movie sucks The pacing is bad, I didn't know what the world the plot was, poorly dircted. What's up with the thug ninjas with axes. I hope they do an honest trailer for this. Waste of money to rent
Message - Don't trust those that seem to help you. If you can disregard the few seconds where the premise of this movie is based on "climate change," understand that the message being conveyed is more a statement about those that would wish to be our dystopian overlords by offering what they term as "balance" in the world. This movie is extremely critical of those trying to bring the world into "balance" through ecology and population control. Ultimately, the movie shows that "balance" is not part of human nature, and human nature triumphs by facing adversity rather than simply following the misguided beliefs of a privileged few as to what they think the ideal ecological system should be for the planet. Think of Bio-Dome crossed with Road Warrior crossed with Drive, with a flavor of Thomas the Tank Engine.
Weird Not my type of movie, but I like the message that it tried to convey to the audience. The Purge has a similar message that illustrates the poor vs the rich. Almost gave it a 3 but the ending was to vague.
Don't watch it, even if your bored. Want to watch an absolutely horrible film with no purpose? Well then, I am happy to say this movie is perfect for you and your bad tastes. Absolutely nothing happens in this movie, and pretty much everyone dies. Chris Evans acting wasn't bad, but the script sure was. Wish I didn't watch it so I could have my time back. I just really wanted to know what happened in the end. If you're like me, LOOK IT UP. Don't waste your time with this horribly pointless film. Cool idea for a film, badly executed. Try again
Makes no sense at all Cinematically beautiful but the worst story I've seen in a while. Extremely boring because of this horrible story that makes no sense. Don't waste your time unless you just like to see weird people fighting to get tithe front of a 20th century train.
Set expectations low I bought into the groundswell of hype that surrounded this Korean made movie. It definitely is unique but not always in a good way. The logic of survival on and off the train is silly at best and it takes away from what initially is an interesting idea. Plus since it is a Korean movie disturbing twists are thrown in just too make sure you are confused at whether this is a drama or fun sci-fi tale. See it but don't expect a new classic.
Strong start, but completely goes off the rails. I'm giving it two stars for the Tilda Swinton's performance and the fantastic set design. Other than that, there's not much going on here. What starts off as a promising post-apocalypse mystery devolves into a really trite and convoluted bore. I love Bong Joon Ho's previous work, especially The Host. Hopefully this is just a misstep and not an indication of where the rest of his career is headed.
Good Movie Well Worth It Honestly I hate spending $4 on a rental so I was a little leary about spending $7 but i figured what the hell that's not to Bad since it's in theaters but I found that this is a one of a kind movie and story with a good cast of characters that dives into man's destruction of the earth, social class differences, cannibalism, martial arts, riots, sword play, gunfights, drugs, clairvoyance and a bullet train what else could be missing from a non stop action movie that actually makes you think. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I found the ending to be kinda plain and predictable in the last minute if the movie but besides that it's well worth renting or buying since it's a good deal on a good movie that's in theaters now. One of Chris Evans best movies.
Solid Sci-Fi concepts, well executed Super dark, dystopian future with some brutal violence and serious unpleasantness towards poor children. Not for faint of heart but if you can make it past that, its a highly enjoyable action flick with better than average plot. E.g. you know that last 20 mins of every sci fi/ action flick where they explain everything? I actually enjoyed this ending.
Freakin fantastic!!! I didnt expect this movie to be this good, I highly recommend. With out going into detail; the movie is fresh and original, sure it recycles some cliches here and there but it still feels new. Characters could have used a little more development as well but the setting felt fleshed out as much as a futuristic train could be. The move started really strong but kinda fell off the rails towards the end (pun intended) but still a solid movie.
Horrible I truly can't fathom any positive rating. This movie is terrible from go. Disjointed plot. Unbelievable characters. Undeveloped characters. Blood for blood sake. Just silly. I regret watching this. Time I will never get back.
Just OK Wanted to really love this film. The Host was nearly a perfect film. But, it suffers from stilted dialogue, a severe lack of character development and a conclusion that is weakened by those first two items.
This will be a definitive classic in a decade. 'Snowpiercer' isn't just a film. It's the future if we fail our planet. We will be forced in a cage to live like animals if we don't stop polluting the environment. It has a very deep story as well as script. Some things are said that will make you really think. You wouldn't resist the urge to rewind to hear it again. It should be watched repeatedly. And the rating is too harsh. PG-13 would have sufficed. The violence isn't that bad. Really.
Absolute crap Crudely tries to be clever, fails. Real over the top stuff. Ridiculous story, ridiculous dialogue, ridiculous characters. Some good acting in there. I'm stunned that this movie is so highly rated
Way better than I was expecting The stellar cast alone makes this worth a watch. Heavy on gratuitous action sequences at times, but the creativity of the story and the fantastic performances more than make up for the cheesiness of the premise and the inevitable plot holes that come with that. It's also gorgeous to look at, and offers a unique - if slightly silly - twist on the dystopia genre. For a movie about a train, this one is not afraid to go off the rails, and that's a good thing. I had fun on this ride.
Interesting concept. Writer not smart enough to finish the story. The progression through the train is interesting, but you have to wade through a ton of violence and weirdness to get to a complete let-down of an ending. I feel robbed of my two hours of life.
Abysmal This is a B movie marketed as something worth watching, but it's not. It's not stylish, the dialog is trite and the acting is really so so (except Ed Harris who is always top notch). Snowpiercer is only worth watching if someone pays you for the time wasted that you will never get back.
Worth seeing once Just one question. Why stick your arm into crunching machinery to stop it from running when there are so many other things to jam it? To get caught so you can't save anyone? This and a few other illogical things but all in all a good flick.
Life's allegory on rails If at the surface you consider this an action movie about killing the bad guys, look closer. It's harder to differentiate the good guys from the bad guys, the oppressed from the oppressors, the leaders and the followers. Is it easier to lead or to follow? I enjoyed this movie very much.
Surprisingly good Trailers had me thinking the movie would be ridiculous but I was wrong, it's an insanely good movie filled with symbolism, including the 3 parties in this movie representing communists, capitalism, and anarchy.
Good Movie This movie made me think. If you don't think very much, you will not like this movie. I interpreted it almost like a treatise against social engineering. The passengers exist within a system too small to allow freedom for anyone. Don't listen to the one or two star reviewers. They are trying to ruin the enjoyment of people with living brains. This movie has well shot cramped action sequences, good pacing, and compelling social commentary.
Why be so critical.... Okay people who live in your mother's basement, let me break it down real quick. It's a movie. A scifi movie. Of course there are parts you may not like, of course there are a few plot holes and of course it is a little farfetched. The movie is about the remaining survivors of earth living on a train for the last 7 years trying to fight for equality. What part is supposed to be realistic again? This was a good movie, well balanced, good twists and entertaining to see so many great actors playing a different character.
Cody and Jess I thought the movie could have taken place in a million different "places" besides being on a TRAIN!!!! - Cody The ending sucked. As you're watching all the excited feelings are building just to be cut short 100%. Not good if the ending sucks. Neat story in general though.- Jess
WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD I absolutely loved it! Original story, great acting and beautiful scenery. I thought Chris Evans and Miss Tilda were great! With this movie, you either get it or you don"t. Everyone has their place in this world and you need to stay in it. You belong to the head or you belong to the tail. In life, poor people always stay in the tail. Struggling with not enough to eat and being told by the rich how to live. That's reality! It is a very well written movie.
Waste of time. Not sure what they were going for. Any chance at having a decent plot got blown out ten minutes in. My wife gave up around then and periodically looked up from her book and asked "oh god, is that still on?"
PLEASE READ! This movie is just down right stupid! Why have great actors but get killed and why have these moments where there seem to be a reason to tell but they get killed and no point on telling them anyway! What are directors thinking now a days?? This movie had potential, but ends with I say "well what now??!!" Just a terrible movie....very disappointed!
Um... Not sure what to say about this movie. Watched it during a flight, and it was rather odd. Seemed like a good start, but the story seemed to become more and more ridiculous as it progressed. I don't often turn off movies or stop watching until it starts to get roll credits, so I powered through it and was relieved that it was over.
Story goes nowhere Horrible ending...even worse is the trip to the end and the fact that I wasted precious moments of my life I can never get back. Only reason I gave it a two is because it has potential and mabey someone will rewrite it and basically change everything including the actors. Fuckin Useless all around
