I sometimes forget what a nice treat it is to walk into a movie with no expectations whatsoever. So it was with this film which just kept surprising me over and over. A failed attempt to deal with global warming basically wrecks the entire planet, rendering everything extinct. Luckily a resourceful train enthusiast has developed a sustainable train cruise which fosters the remnants of human civilization. You can imagine what type of society that has created. Splice together Hunger Games with Matrix's Zion.

Tilda Swinton is a hoot and I especially liked Alison Pill's sequence as a school teacher. One of the weirdest yet hilarious parts of the film.

Surprisingly great action sequences with a film that moves along at a good pace and you have yourself a perfect movie for what it is. You would think these sci-fi flicks about a dystopian future would be played out by now, but this one feels and is delivered as something very original.

I sure do love me some action movies with brains. They are so rare. This is a great flick.
