“SNOWPIERCER” REVIEW: A-

qlwfI

The is one awesome under the radar sci fi flick. I remember it having so many release date issues and being done for awhile and no one wanting to touch it and i dont know. I think there were budgetary concerns too. It looks like every penny was well spent to me. Its all on the screen.

Set on a train in dystopian times of, of course, a global cataclysm, it drops you right into the story of the have and have nots on this speeding train where there is a very unfair caste system in place, much like our class warfare of today. It speaks as an allegory to the 1 and 99%. It has a gritty, dirty, soul sucking atmosphere of say, “DISTRICT 9”. But CAPTAIN AMERICA has a plan and its ambitious and it dangerous but they’re sick of this crap cuz they been at the back of the proverbial train for years.

The action is intense and nearly unrelenting. Its just a great all around movie that has you rooting for the righting of wrongs, but when all is said and done, the cost may be too high, a pyrrhic victory in the truest since of the word

      1. Ok, you’re missing a lot of the film then….

        Swinton’s character was pure black comedy, so was the entire savior is a cannibal, so were all the overdone sequences (the school indoctrination, the frozen Inuits!!!)… There were frozen inuits standing in a line for goodness sake!

      2. The entire idea you’d have little kids keeping the train going… The “angels” falling into the maw of hell before the entrance of the front of the train. The entire thing was overdone on purpose — a pastiche of its subject matter… ridiculing the outrageousness of its idiotic (in a good way) premise.

      3. Evil dudes jumped out of a pile of Easter eggs! None of this is “realistic” fiction…. 😉 Eating sushi in a fish tank. Offering your own leg for someone to eat. etc etc.

        (I’ll stop there — hehe)
