"Bold, vicious, and emotionally conscious, Snowpiercer is everything Hollywood can’t do because it’s Hollywood. Not every effects shot is up to snuff with the latest Marvel movie, but it’s hard to miss the gloss. There’s not time. Bong Joon-ho shoves us down into hell on wheels, with an army of machine gun-toting oppressors hot on our tail. It’s a sci-fi world with familiar crossroads: Fight or flight? The answers come from the gut, but the fallout is politically ambiguous. This is a movie primed to challenge and wallop an audience.” - Matt Patches

"Passengers. This is not a shoe. This is disorder. This is size ten chaos. This— see this? This is death. In this locomotive we call home there is one thing that’s between our warm hearts and the bitter cold. Clothing? Shields? No. Order. Order is the barrier that holds back the frozen death. We must all of us on this train of life remain in our allotted station. We must each of us occupy our particular, preordained position. Would you wear a shoe on your head? Of course you wouldn’t wear a shoe on your head. A shoe doesn’t belong on your head. A shoe belongs on your foot. A hat belongs on your head. I am a hat. You are a shoe. I belong on the head. You belong on the foot. Yes? So it is." - Snowpiercer (2013)

"The most important keyword to me was ‘train’ and the structure of the narrative reflects that. It’s simple: Curtis travels from the very last section of the train to the front. So the different carriages represent different stages in the story – every time you enter a new car, it’s like a new world that the characters are experiencing."
– Joon-ho Bong on the design of the train cars.
