The humanity and social issues are strong with this one.
Came to see Snowpiercer with no expectation at all, had no slightest idea what the story would be, and hell I didn’t even know it’s futuristic. Maybe that’s why it’s so enjoyable. Ignorance is bliss.
Of course it’s not without faults. In fact, there were so many plot holes and things felt forced here and there. But I’m glad that overall it’s a thrill ride, not a train wreck.
Highlights: Tilda Swinton’s comic relief was simply a barrel of fun. Also, cool uses of light and shadow. Me likey the cinematographey. And the scores. I knew when I first saw Marco Beltrami’s name in the opening credit, it’s gonna be intense!
