A while ago I wrote about the trailer for the Korean-American film ‘Snowpiercer’.
Just recently, I had the chance to finally see it.
And I have to say, I liked it.
More than a science-fiction film, it turned out to be a carefully crafted thriller – there wasn’t a moment when I wasn’t wondering what would happen next, and when it did happen, it was never what I imagined it would be.
In addition, it held more surprises thanks to its very un-Hollywood nature – that would be the director, Bong Joon-ho’s influence, I’m sure.
If you like unconventional action films, I’d definetely recommend it.
Verdict: Control the Engine, Control the Train.
