Snowpiercer: Season 1 (2020)

SEASON:

Season 1
Snowpiercer

Critics Consensus

Snowpiercer takes a different route with its source material, crafting an ambitious sci-fi mystery with style to spare, but with little of the subversive bite of Bong Joon-ho's theatrical adaptation.

    Essa série é muito boa, 1° temporada me cativou demais. Adoro ficção científica
  • May 12, 2022
    I love Jenifer Connell And I love sci fi But this was a disappointment… Acting was ok But really lame twists and plots Very unfortunate .I very dislike shows where they are doing all that effort and crazyness… for an initial cause that is so.. meaningless… *spoiler alert* boohoo turns out she is the real boss of the train… so what? Also super lame that they revealed halfway who the killer was ..before the detective found out .. And how they wanted make it seem like it was a twist that the teenage girl was dating him.. But I honestly didn't care about her at all.. and who cares the guy still listens to his dads records .. And why they keep people in drawers? Eat the damn meat guys… you're on a forever closed train…seriously… Anyway .. I could go on… if you're looking for a good sci-fi series… go watch The Foundation

    Great show! With lots of interesting plot twist 🤩

    I would highly recommend watching this, it's such an underrated series. The story line is brilliant, accompanied with great acting, and of course, the main man himself, Sean Bean as Mr Wilford. Parts of this show are quite dark & twisted, which makes it believable considering the circumstances. It portrays the beauty and brutality of humanity. The train is an immersive world, and one you can imagine yourself being in. With climate change prevalent within our world today, the possibility of it actually happening is plausible. This third series has gone all out and gets better each episode. One of them shows where you watch back the first series and it feels nostalgic, which is already the case, and that shows how far the storyline has progressed. Some people say Layton (the lead role) is not ideal, but I think once you understand him, he's a great character and actor. Plays the role well of someone who's lived in awful confined conditions for several years.. the tail is well constructed, and would be living hell for those who had to endure being there. It's also nice to have an English/American mix of cast. And I will finish on saying, Sean Bean is outstanding in this, seriously. You should watch it just to see the highest quality of acting if nothing else.

    Amazing show and cast. Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Alison Wright, and Mickey Sumner are all just absolutely amazing. I feel that each and every single member of the cast embodies their character as if it were actually themselves. I love this show! I have never ever rated a show in my entire life before (and I've been around a while) but this show truly stands out amongst the rest. The shows premise is so outside of the box and that just makes it so gosh darn refreshing and invigorating. I hope the writers can keep each season just as good as the last (which almost at the end of Season three now, they have). Bravo to everyone that is a part of making this show come to life!! Season three hasn't even finished and I am on pins and needles waiting for Season four to drop! I could go on gushing for awhile so I'll end it here by saying if you have not seen it yet, go on and give it a try as I really think you will love it too. If you have seen it please leave a review so others can experience what we all have.

    Complex characters, very thought provoking ethical dilemmas, lots of good quality suspense and a credible plot. 10/10
  • Feb 04, 2022
    I thought the overall plot was entertaining and Jennifer Connelly was awesome like always but I just couldn't get into the main character. I dunno if it was bad acting or bad dialogue but I found him annoying and hard to root for. With a better lead there I'd bump it to a four star I think.

    Esta serie esta genial, deberia tener mucho más reconocimiento.
  • Jan 18, 2022
    The first season was written so well, it seems the storyline is becoming a perpetual engine. I think this scifi franchise will be with us and growing for a long time. More please
