Movie Info

In this sci-fi epic from director Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Mother), a failed global-warming experiment kills off most life on the planet. The final survivors board the SNOWPIERCER, a train that travels around the globe via a perpetual-motion engine. When cryptic messages incite the passengers to revolt, the train thrusts full-throttle towards disaster. (c) TWC-Radius

  • It was the end of times, it was the worst of times, and one of the best of times you'll have in the theater this year.

  • I'm not saying that the impoverished are going to grab axes and violently murder the wealthy elite. But I'm also not NOT saying that...

  • Snowpiercer has action, heart, a sense of humor, and a powerful message. The cast is talented and diverse. (...) It's the kind of genre movie the world needs more of.

  • A totally unique, delightfully weird romp that offers a spark of imagination that is sorely lacking in so many of our summer movies.

    July 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Snowpiercer may not be the masterpiece that people were hoping for, but that shouldn't take away from the fact that it's a hell of a fun ride.

Audience Reviews for Snowpiercer

  • 2d ago
    Grisly eye-opening, viciously violent and social-commentary-gold make Snowpiercer a sci-fi-action-gem that speaks a worldy-view on social-class divides. This visionary tale of Bong Joon-ho's creation is beautifully shot, tensely written and filled with captivating performances from Evans and Swinton; all ingredients palpable of sanctifying this film as one of the director's personal bests. 4.52/5

    I really liked this movie much more than I anticipated great action and a great story from a film that from the trailer didn't excite me all that much.

    A very unique action Sci-Fi-film that is unlike anything you've seen before. The unpredictable plot and fascinating location already make sure of that but the outstanding look adds another layer of oddness. The sudden bursts of violence are almost physically hurting for the spectator, yet you can't look away from this fascinating and challenging film.

    Ugh! Despair, Depression and Hopelessness all served up in 80% darkness. What kind of entertainment is that? None would be the answer. A very few beautiful visual is not enough to compensate for the endless gloom.
