Snowpiercer (2013)

South Korea, Czech Republic 126m, Colour
Director: Bong Joon-ho; Cast: Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ko Asung, John Hurt, Ed Harris

Snowpiercer is a preposterous post-apocalyptic thriller based on the graphic novel Le Transperceneige. As a class struggle that is played out aboard a fast-moving train to nowhere, the story is so full of plot holes that it even made its ridiculous premise: a locomotive powered by perpetual motion carrying the last vestiges of humanity – look smart. My only hope [spoiler alert] was that the polar bear would eventually hunt down the remaining survivors and have them, with a side of Tilda Swinton, for dinner (Klaus Ming December 2017).

    Finally–someone who agrees with me that the premise is stupid and plot holes abound.

      While I was ready to accept the ridiculous premise, what followed was really too much. I’m amazed at the glowing reviews this movie has.
