Snowpiercer is an under-the-rader post-apocalyptic thriller that offers the grittiness that many times only Asian cinema may achieve. South Korean director Joon-ho Bong forces audiences to forget that Chris Evans was ever a Marvel superhero, as he leads a revolt of his fellow “low-class” citizens against the self-appointed gentry in a train that contains all remaining members of the planet. With immersive environments and a layered script, this film melds together social commentary and moral discourse in a visually arresting and vastly entertaining package.

Wow, what a big train. The movie left me asking questions like “Where do the gardeners sleep?” and “Why a train, could they not have just made bunkers?”. The train is a beautiful object to discuss social class and oppression, allowing Joon-ho Bong to delve into the stark differences in reality experienced by humanity. This film plays tricks with tension, breaking from it’s serious tone to highlight the absurdity of the reality faced by the people on the train. A great movie that will keep you hooked as you need to see what happens next.
