Chris Evans' plays Curtis who, at the beginning of the film has plans for a mutiny. After hearing rumors about what lies at the front of the train, he wants to lead his people there. With the help of his sidekick Edgar, played by Jamie Bell the plans are put into motion.
The film has a great deal in common with other dystopian future films like, Hunger Games and Soylent Green. Bong is known for his character development and, it really shines here. Each character is developed very well. John Hurt plays the "wise man" of the group. Giving an emotional performance, he was a welcome sight. One of the oddest characters was mason, played by the fantastic Tilda Swinton. She obviously had a lot of fun in her role.
