‘The Host’ director Bong Joon-ho has corralled a magnificent cast including Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Chris Evans and Ewen Bremner for this sci-fi actioner based on a French graphic novel. In a frozen post-apocalyptic wasteland, the only thing moving is the Snowpiercer, a sealed train housing the last vestiges of humanity – rich at the front, poor at the back. Hey, allegory! This Korean-French-American co-production has actually been released in the first two of those territories, and has been hailed as a classic, while the handful of British critics who made the trip across the channel came back raving (in a good way).
