Snowpiercer: Killing Your Soul One Train Car At A Time (A Review)

Snow Piercer

There’s not a lot to be said about this film that hasn’t already been blasted by other more established sources. It’s the pet project of Joon Ho Bong, and numerous prominent western actors but that’s not what made this film so good. Themes are important when it comes to films, and Snowpiercer’s absolutely filled with philosophical ideas and they’re pretty well executed. It’s just a shame that this film is so relentlessly dark.

What starts as a revolution, quickly turns into revelations about the nature of the train and its inhabitants. Each car that Chris Evans and his motley crew conquers reveals an ever darker secret about their so-called utopia. The film touches on the delicate balance of nature, the importance of children, and how the big guy may actually have some very twisted plans regarding the control of the population. In fact, if you take a look at the Ferguson crisis erupting now, you may actually draw a few parallels for yourself. I highly suggest this film for those that want to kill off their optimism just for a little while.
