They can apparently put chains on the wheels so it can hop off the tracks and cruise around on the frozen ocean, no explanation of how they onl got the train off the tracks or how they can actually steer a train ( most trains run on rails so there is no need for a steering wheel only an acceleration and brake lever).

I hink like a lot of people who were thrille by the fifth ook but ended up reading the firs, I was unwilling to find some glimmers of where the film grew out of.

They are often straight to dvd, have an entirely new cast, and although they seem like a carbon copy of the original characters and plot, they are devoid of the heart and creativity that made the original special.

Snowpiercer 2 is that straight to dvd sequel.

( hide spoiler) ] and rich people who chomp down on caviar while chilling in first class.What really did n't make sense to me was that his story followed a completely different train also known as the Snowpiercer.

Do not buy into the hype, and do not buy more than one volume before you now you 're lookin to like it.

I am endlessl amazed with the impressive concepts authors and filmmakers are coming up with in regard to potential post-apocalyptic societies and how they might play out.

And while the idea might sound simple, it ’ s not; there is a lot going on in the storyline, which give th series an epic must-have for comics fans! I was hesitant to even writ this series at first; the dea of he world ’ s survivors traveling around the globe on an enormous train almost sounds too far-fetched to even consider.

Another is certainly othing that should dissuade you from reading it…just a simple, personal opinion.SNOWPIERCER is a unique vision of what the future could potentially hold for mankind.
