Movie Review: Snowpiercer

Chris Evans returns, after portraying Captain America, in this future thrilling sci-fi movie, as Curtis, a revolution leader in the last human home, the Snowpiercer. After human mess up as always, the earth is covered with a thick coat of snow. Everything is frozen and everyone is dead, everyone except the people riding on the Wilford state of the art train, the Snowpiercer. The train is divided into people in the front and their first class, the second class, the economy and the people in the free zone, the back of the train. After 17 years of living in complete poverty and surviving only on protein bars, the people are led by Curtis to revolt against Wilford and the people in the front.

It is so thrilling and keeps you on the edge of your seat! It’s just one hell of a train ride! Each scene takes us from one surprise to the next. You feel the characters and you cheer for them, hoping they will make it and find their freedom!

The movie is directed by the South Korean director, Joon-ho Bong. I haven’t seen any of his previous movies, but I loved his artistic touch in this movie. You can tell that even though the movie is Hollywood themed, but you can see the eastern Asia cinema in it.  It was a well-planned infusion. A lot of scenes and lines from the movie stuck in my head, but if I will choose one it will be the Axe fight scene, which was just amazing. The melody of the movement reflected the pain and suffering of people living in the back.

From the beginning you can understand the message behind the scenes with what will happen if we meddled with the environment so much that we end up ruining it and also the subject of the rich using the poor and the inequality between the groups of people. The movie is symbolic and it was done in a very brilliant way!

The cast of the movie include Oscar winners Tilda Swinton and Octavia Spencer who both were brilliant. Tilda transformed totally in the movie and she was amazing as always! Octavia, OMG! I love her. I don’t even have to explain why! She’s just awesome! Oh and I was happy to see Jamie Bell who I loved in the movie, Jumper. He was one of my favorite characters in the movie and of course Chris Evans was as brilliant as always! I’m really getting to like his acting. He’s getting really good.

So, the movie is awesome! I highly recommend it. Unless if you can’t take suspense or gruesome bloody scenes, so I advice against it.

Next Week is Spider Man 2! Hopefully I’ll review the first one this week!

Till Then!
