Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There's a righteous savagery to this movie that's almost but not quite obscured by the lushness of its imagined world. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Sep 30, 2014

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. – John Anderson, Wall Street Journal, Jan 2, 2015

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. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Jul 17, 2014

Fresh: This is powerful stuff, and all the more so for its straightforwardness. – John Semley, Globe and Mail, Jan 2, 2015

Customer Reviews


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.


I saw the trailer for this movie about a year ago and immediately wanted to see it. Unfortunately, it took a while to come to the US, but good thing it did. Snowpiercer is by far one of the best movies I have seen in 2014 so far. It’s smarter than the average action thriller, the action is eye-popping, the story is insanely compelling and interesting, the characters are likable, the acting is superb, and the movie itself is overall great. This is now one of my favorite apocalyptic movies and is definitely worth the time watching.
