IMDb Review 1:
Absolutely amazing. A cinematic microcosm of society. For those of you
uninterested in topics like '1984' and 'Animal Farm', watch this film
for a hazard course in understanding the human condition. From start to
end you see a small-scale depiction of society from it's most basic
'proletariat' level, right up to the elite, in perfect order. And we
see the evolution of civilisation from simple beginnings to science,
education, quality, luxury, then hedonism, wastefulness and eventual
demise, in exactly that order.

Wow, i honestly did not expect much from this film from the trailer.
The message seemed one dimensional, and the whole 'action' bit from the
trailer wasn't really that impressing. Only thing that dragged me to
the theater was the director's name (also the great cast), and i am
happy to say that i'm pleasantly blown away by director Bong once
again. The film looked great, the first half was beyond thrilling, the
acting for the latter half was just, top notch, the action was bloody
and fantastic, and most of all, the ideology behind the story was
interesting to say at least.

'Snowpiercer' is an ambitious and serious film about situation after end of the world. The storyline isn't original actually, it could be inspired by Noah who built a big boat to avoid doomsday while 'Snowpiercer' is in the train. From start till the end of the film is about group of people from tail section who is commanded by Curtis want to rebel and go through the front section to kill Wilford (the train maker) after injustice they've received for many years. 'Snowpiercer' is undeniably fun and visually stunning. The film shows brutality which is interesting to see. Some scenes really tense and thrilling especially when they have war against soldiers, it's an unbelievable experience. Perhaps there are some things isn't explained more detail and lacks humanity but it doesn't bother the plot in it. Bong Joon Ho takes his responsibility on international debut really well although 'Snowpiercer' is still below from his best, I think it will open an opportunity for him to create more visionary films in Hollywood industry.Snowpiercer torrent.
