Snowpiercer (2013)

  1. Just watched Snowpiercer yesterday and it simply blew me away leaving me numb and dumbfounded. I was pleasantly surprised by the movie's extremely ambitious, visually stunning and richly satisfying futuristic story that reflects the various aspects of our society from within. The director's use of numerous allegories not only adds that little "oomph" to the film but it puts your mind in a thrilling roller-coaster ride, leaving you constantly pondering about the meaning of 'justice' and its respective costs. Snowpiercer provides a great enjoyment that pierces through your mind and imaginations. Big applause to Director Bong and his crews in delivering such thought provoking, breathtaking enjoyment. Thank you

  2. 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.

    All of that can be overlooked, however, if you're just the average movie-goer who simply wants a good story with a hero, an adventure and an end goal. In which case I say the film is a good one but nothing special in that respect. Certainly there were parts where I thought, "eh?", until it clicked later that it was all part of the Director's greater cinematic design.

    But for the arty film student types, this film is sure to be the topic of many, many essays for years to come.

    Clearly every part of the film was deliberate – every shot, every line of script, every item in the background. It was true art. None of that quick-buck profit-incentive Hollywood stuff.

    In conclusion I recommend this film to everyone, particularly people who want to learn something or gain some insight from what they watch. For the everyday movie-lover, go into this with an open mind and have a really long think about how you can compare it to the world today.

    Top stuff, 10/10

  3. Wow, i honestly did not expect much from this movie 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 movie 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.

    I can't really say anything more than that since saying anything beside the trailer would be a dead giveaway, but really, wow.

    I honestly don't know how the director's unique style and choices would get to the American audience, but as a person who enjoys this strange and beautiful execution of director Bong, this movie fulfilled everything i want from Bong's film an intellectual Sifi movie. It gave me a handful amount of things to think and talk about, and those kinds of movies always give me the best movie experiences. Definitely one of the must watches of this year.

  4. When I saw that IMDb had a trailer for this movie on its home page, I was pretty surprised. Even though it has some well known actors from the U.S., I didn't think a Korean movie would end up being shown there. After watching the trailer, I was really excited to see the movie. I love movies. I go and watch movies all the time, but sadly I'm not very critical about them.

    However, this movie was amazing. I strongly recommend watching it. It's spectacular. Even though it's considered "low budget" by Hollywood standards, it has amazing visuals and a great story line. I was riveted the whole way through. I really can't stop thinking about the movie and how I think I might even go back to the theater to see it again (which is something I never do). So really–it's great. I'm not a huge fan of the ending, but overall the movie was fantastic!
