After a failed global warming experiment kills off most of the world’s population, the planet’s survivors find themselves in a life-sustaining train traveling across the globe called the “Snowpiercer.”
Snowpiercer is a mind-trip. It’s an ambitous, smart scifi film that sticks out like a sore thumb in a summer full of reboots and CGI-filled blockbusters. It’s full of plenty of compelling twists and turns, and its phenomenal cast help bring the visually-stunning story to life. As the hero who rebels against the train’s class system, Chris Evans in particular shows off an impressive new side unlike anything we’ve seen from Captain America prior.
Snowpiercer is a bold, dark, and original story full of drama, tension, and heartbreak. It’s unlike anything else you’ll see in the theaters this year — and that’s a compliment.
