Reminds me to snowpiercer from Bong Joon Ho
22 March 2020 | by izrSee all my reviews

I am giving it a solid 7. Good movie. Reminds me to snowpiercer from Bong Joon Ho but in this case the prision is vertical and not horizontal (train) but challenges the human behavior in a similar way. Good movie!
