It looked like it could be something worth watching, but I left after an hour…

After a failed experiment to stop the global warming, earth is experiencing an extremely cold ice age. There are only a few people left and they all live in a long train that rides around the globe continuously. Moreover, there is a class distinction between the front of the train and the back and a revolution is on its way.

Okay, it’s science fiction and based on a comic book. But it just does not make sense at all. Star Wars is more believable than this crappy story. If you decide to go for the moralistic sci-fi movie, then don’t make it look like the story takes place in the time of Les Miserables. Maybe it gets explained in the end, but where does the train get its fuel to ride around the globe for 18 years in a row? And how can people survive on crushed cockroach energy bars? It’s not good storytelling if after an hour you have more questions than answers. It feels like watching Lost. 

Unfortunately nothing else helps to persevere. The dialogues are just too silly. The acting is terrible. (even Tilda Swinton fails to be either funny, scary or impressive). There’s no humor at all. The whole biased future class difference thing is tedious. And there is just no exciting action. Which is bad for an action movie.

Not even sure why I add a post about this.
