| Quite underwhelming; it isn't as brilliant as I expected it to be.
Quite underwhelming; it isn't as brilliant as I expected it to be. When actors like Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris are associated with the first international project of an acclaimed Korean Director like Bong Joon-ho, one is bound to be excited by its prospects. I've loved Joon-ho's work, especially 'Memories of Murder' and 'Mother'. Though he proves to be an able Director with his first International venture, the movie doesn't have the usual touch of humanity his movies usually possess; you rarely sympathize with any of the characters or situations. The script has an overwhelming number of plot-holes; these could have been overlooked if the characters were properly developed. Many would say it's an interesting portrayal of class-division in society, but that doesn't compensate for the weak storyline. It keeps you interested till the end, but the ending doesn't give you the proper finish it leads up to. The acting is commendable, but the characters lack proper depth.

The complete artistic setting of the train, the action sequences and the weird characters keep you intrigued throughout. But overall, the movie didn't have the impact I expected it to have. Hope Joon-ho's future international ventures are as charming and brilliant as his earlier works.
