Snowpiercer (2013)

My Take

Movie-Night 115 x 100Snowpiercer is another movie whose premise is based on “Global Warming”. Somehow all the world ends because global warming has caused a new ice age. The whole earth is covered in ice and snow. The only living beings ride around the globe on a super train that takes a complete year from start to finish.

I enjoyed the movie, global warming aside, because there is a power struggle between the have-nots and the haves. The poor exist to serve the rich and are considered subhuman.

Storyline

SnowpiercerSet in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.

Set in 2031, the entire world is frozen except for those aboard the Snowpiercer. For 17 years, the world’s survivors are on a train hurtling around the globe creating their own economy and class system. Led by Curtis, a group of lower-class citizens living in squalor at the back of the train are determined to get to the front of the train and spread the wealth around. Each section of the train holds new surprises for the group who have to battle their way through. A revolution is underway.
