Audience Reviews for Snowpiercer: Season 2

  • Nov 05, 2021
    Amazing acting, and they explore such fascinating social concepts. The writing is on point but it wouldn't be the same without this amazing cast.
  • Aug 04, 2021
    I liked it more than Season 1, good character arcs.
  • Jun 23, 2021
    Distracting, but fails to exploit the full potential of the potential this had. Shallowly put together.

    Snowpiercer is an excellent post apocalypse series, increasingly entertaining and gripping. I loved the original movie from the original graphic novel, and this is a nice continuation of the same theme. If any series can claim direct inspiration from the climate crisis today, it is Snowpiercer. I definitely feel this is the best performance of Jennifer Connely in her entire career. She carries the show on her shoulders, the burden of making terribly hard decisions to keep humanity alive in a frozen world. She plays the role of anti hero very well, at times showing tremendous humanity and compassion, at other times a callous disregard for human rights - but always driven to the mission of the train. The supporting cast is excellent, and the addition of Sean Bean in season 2 added an incredible gravitas to the series. It's been a while since I've seen such a vicious, erudite and sophisticated megalomaniac villain. He perfectly justified Melanie's initial choices to save humanity. Other delightful characters include Ruth, the perfect example of how not even the end of the world demands abandonment of decorum and civility. Most of the characters undergo a transformation during this endless revolution of track, as their circumstances change. As we see the tug of war, and literal civil war, inside the train oscillating between autocracy and democracy, it is a perfect mirror of the political times we live in today. Kudos to the showrunners for integrating this reality. The image of a populist who divides to conquer, who demonizes the weak and who promises nebulous security, all the while demanding to be worshipped, seems quite familiar and recent indeed. The special effects of a long silver snake charging through a frozen world with the glistening corpses of human civilization is a sight to behold. Some of the action sequences are breathtaking, especially in the Himalayas. The showrunners definitely didn't skimp on the budget. As with any end of humanity series, what always saddens me the most is the wanton disregard for the preservation of human life, even as the species struggles on the edge of the extinction abyss. All these types of shows seem to be stating that humanity does not indeed deserve to survive. Nevertheless I am very happy season 3 is coming up and really can't wait to see how this gripping story continues to unwind on the endless track.

    Episodes are too slow. Just dragging on for no reason whatsoever 🤦🤦🤦

    Better than season1 Sean Bean is a little annoying, but that makes the drama more good Maybe, season3 will its peak
  • Apr 26, 2021
    Jennifer Connelly is a hell of an actor.
  • Apr 25, 2021
    Terrible!!! I was very excited by the ending of season 1 which was shocking and brought everything back on track with the original storyline. But Hollywood just had to ruin everything in season 2. They made countless contradictions, threw reality aside, altered the psyche of all characters, and derailed off the storyline BY A LOT just to give --what was once a great story all and by itself-- a "freedom warrior" and "power to the people" vibe!

    Just like season 1 , this show is so good yet really underrated. Its story is compelling interesting and very interesting . One feels like they are in the world with these characters walking every step with them. If you love to see what a world would look like in a frozen world and we all lived on a train, check this out

    The acting is pretty good, but sadly the story moves at a snails pace. Some characters are becoming increasingly one-dimensional.
