It's based on a french graphic novel called Le Transperceneige and directed by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (park chan-wook is one of the producers).
There are so many important scenes here and even the pacing of the plot is personally how I like it to be I could just go on and on and on....
Now that I think about it, I'm super salty over the fact that Snowpiercer didn't get more recognition like I watched this last year and its *crickets in the air* when I mention this movie like....
Let me tell you this is the best performance of Chris Evans's career upto this point tbh. Also like every other movie I blag on about here, the visuals are just as enticing and hauntingly beautiful honestly I could feel my creative mind churning with every minute the movie chugged along.
It is ruthlessly gorey but without turning into tortureporn. Some of you may not know this but I'm a huuge sci-fi fan which explains why I love this so much. not in a shallow, tropey sense that I love dystopian sci-fi but in the sense that snow piercer is a straightforward adventure story that doesn't play to the lowest common denominator. It's simple but it's not stupid. It's carefully structured around a piece of interesting, thoughtful critique of classism and political symbolism that you could probably still ignore if you just want to watch Chris Evans save the day.
