cyrano: (Coyote Cinema)
[personal profile] cyrano
When I heard people talk about this, I was a bit uncertain. I thought I had recently seen a Korean horror/thriller that took place on a train, but all I could remember were bits from Snowpiercer. And I think I might have seen the first part of it or something, because the baseball team looked familiar. But it was a good watch this time through too. It strikes a lot of the traditional 'zombie movie' beats, with the innocent but ominous opening, the 'alarmed news reports' slowly filtering in through the train television, and then our first infection. They threw an additional bit in there with a character actor I recognized as 'guy who plays the crazy old man' but from there on in there was a lot of tension followed by explodey action and oh so brief moments to catch your breath. We had a few 'people who want to survive get really ugly' moments, and containing most of the film to the linearly-designed set of a train really cranked up the suspense. The ending was a little disappointing, not because I wanted a TPK ending but because how they chose to get there made sense within the metaphor of the story but as an actual plan it was pretty dumb.
