Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Violent, often absurd, but full of brilliant surprises.
Fresh: There's a righteous savagery to this movie that's almost but not quite obscured by the lushness of its imagined world.
Fresh: 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 steam-punk Apocalypse.
Fresh: You couldn't ask for a better metaphor for hell on Earth than what Bong Joon-ho has wrought with Snowpiercer: constant forward momentum while getting absolutely nowhere, suffering all the while.
Please do yourself a favor and don’t watch this film. It isn’t as much a Sci-Fi movie as a messed up art project.
Action-Packed & Philosophical
Yes, it is competing with yet another "Transformers" movie, but if you're a Sci-Fi fan because of its ability to predict the future and/or dream of our potential and/or give you a third-eye view of our present state, then this film will please you. It will touch you, like a good episode of "Twilight Zone," keeping you entertained that day but also making you think about in bed that evening. The film does a good job of making you think, showing you many arguments, and showing you a potential (although perhaps frightening) solution. It may not be enough of an aesthetic, superficial, and action-flooded, commercial film to break a box-office record, but it will become a cult icon.
This movie sucked. Kind of.
Had the potential to be profound and Gilliam-esque, and squandered it by incessantly beating the metaphor into your skull over and over and over. Its a cool metaphor. We get it. Got it. No, trust me, I get it. Seriously. Aaaaand I’m over it.
If Scorsese is the master of subtly presenting complex themes to the audience and letting them decide what to make of it, this film is the Michael Bay of screaming them at you.
