I won't describe this as a bad movie, in fact Im not sure how to describe it. Straight to DVD I would pick it up and give it a watch. All thats left of humanity is stuck on a constantly moving train, a revolt, ruthless class system, mysterious benefactor, and bad teeth. Perfect for Riffing!
Just watched this! So strange and creepy- I don't understand why they could make all these parts for this train but not the one the tiny children ran in the engine? The very definition of a dystopian world, that doesn't make a lick of sense- also for all the big names in it, it surely sucks

It's pretentious, blatantly allegorical... it has the same problems as 'Gwoemul', but has far less charm. It's mean-spirited and lurid. But hey- at least Song Kang-ho and Go Ah-sung are playing father and daughter again, how neat is that?
I created a double entry for this because I was on my phone which apparently didn't bring up the original suggestion. So I gave this one all three of the votes I can give it!
To anyone who is not aware of this film, allow me to take you on a journey...
The year is TWO THOUSAND THIRTY ONE. 17 years ago, humanity tried a daring measure to stop the seemingly irreversible effects of GLOBAL WARMING and instead FROZE the entire surface of the planet. Every form of life (and a few inanimate objects, oddly enough) has gone EXTINCT. Well, sort of. Humanity's last chance for survival is an EVERLASTING BULLET TRAIN that runs in a loop, circling the earth once per year. Now, as the train ploughs through the DEAD WORLD, the denizens fortunate enough to be on board make the best of their continued survival. Well, except for the impoverished residing in the tail section of course. They're tired of being oppressed and eating black JELL-O BRICKS, so they come up with a plan: they're going to TAKE THE ENGINE. And then KILL EVERYONE.
The only appropriate fate for this movie is to be part of the mst3k/rifftrax family. It's not so terrible as to be nigh-unwatchable, it has decent enough action and pace, but the overall tone and actual progression of the movie warrants nothing but ridicule. Please, anyone who happens upon this entry, vote for it and make it happen! You need this in your life.
