“Snowpiercer”: Intriguing Premise and Characters

What do Chris Evans, a non-stop train, and a whole ton of violence have in common? The South Korean-American movie, “Snowpiercer”. By the year 2031, the world has gone into a nuclear winter, killing almost all life. The surviving humans are aboard a train called the Snowpiercer, guarded by armed soldiers. The survivors, particularly the ones in the tail-section, are at the mercy of the train’s mysterious conductor Wilford. The tail-section survivors, led by Chris Evans’ Curtis Everett, launch a revolt against Wilford’s guards. Their only objective is simple; move forward until they reach the engine. While I really enjoyed the film, I can’t say that it’s one to watch again.
