Climate changes have led to the onset of a new Ice Age and wiped out most forms of life on earth. The few survivors travel the globe in a state of the art bullet train where a class system has emerged and the many are savagely ruled over by the few, inspiring a revolution led by a common, unassuming passenger (Chris Evans). Snowpiercer is predominated by tepid visuals, a vapid screenplay, and exhausting action sequences. Evans snoozes through another role and Tilda Swinton is both unrecognizable and insufferable. I can't really figure out why people ate this one up and can only speculate that when a movie is different, bizarre, and conveniently streaming on Netflix, then it therefore must be hailed as brilliant.
