The Host and Mother director Bong Joon-ho makes his English-language debut with this dystopian sci-fi thriller set in the aftermath of a failed global-warming experiment that ushered in the dawn of a new Ice Age. As a perpetual-motion engine keeps a super-powered locomotive speeding around the planet, the impoverished lower classes occupy the rear cars while the privileged upper classes are pampered in the front. The fragile balance of power between the two begins to shift, however, when an enigmatic message sparks a revolt that cannot be quelled. Luke Evans, Song Kang-ho, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, and Ed Harris star.
Didn't live up to the hype.
Ups for originality and Swinton's performance, which enable the suspension of belief given some large potholes. Nice to know th hat the Korean custom of eating hard boiled eggs on a train will become universal in the future. :)
Crazy, but my brand of crazy. Way more exciting than the premise would suggest.
Will probably end up being a cult movie. It is slow, mixed up , and drawn out.
very intense and entertaining if you are in the right set of mind (shut down all faculties of your brain that deal with logic)
A summer acton movie with a difference - an idea in every scene. That may or may not be your cup of tea.
