Browsing through Netflix looking for something exciting to watch I came across this, and after looking it up online I found that it has a 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so I had to watch it.
And it was every bit as good as it’s rating would suggest. Maybe it was a bit cliché at times, but on the whole it was well directed, acted, and the story was intriguing.
Tilda Swinton was the acting highlight as the second-in-command to the main bad dude (played by Ed Harris). She was an absolute hoot.
Also in the film were Chris Evans and John Hurt, and a supporting cast that included a couple of fine Korean actors (this is a Korean/Czech production).
The special effects too are impressive, and a replica train was built which was moved on a gimbal to simulate the actual train movement.
