Last chance to watch near perfect film on Netflix starring Marvel’s Chris Evans

Last chance to watch near perfect film on Netflix starring Marvel’s Chris Evans

The film, starring Marvel's Chris Evans, has a near perfect rating with movie critics

Whether its the heartbreaking One Day or horrifying Can I Tell You a Secret, the thrill of sitting down to watch the latest TV show or film to land on Netflix is one we can all appreciate.

But nothing lasts forever, especially if the content isn't a Netflix Original production, with a number of titles leaving the streaming giant every month.

Just this working week, a total of 60 films and series are saying au revoir to Netflix audiences. This includes one epic sci-fi film that only arrived seven weeks ago.

Another among the dozens saying their farewells is an absolute banger starring none other than the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Captain American himself, Chris Evans.

The big hitters don't stop there, with Evans joined by Song Kang-ho (Parasite), Ed Harris (The Truman Show), John Hurt (Alien, 1984, V for Vendetta), Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia, Doctor Strange), Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, King Kong), and Octavia Spencer (The Help, Ma).

It's directed by Bong Joon-ho, whose other credits include the Oscar winning Parasite.

The 2013 film is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi set in the very near future, 2031, following a catastrophic attempt to stop climate change that accidentally brought on a new ice age.

Those who survived the incident live on a self-sustaining train that navigates the world run by a reclusive transportation boss.

Chris Evans is the leading man.

The passengers on the train are segregated by class, with the elite in the luxurious front cars and the poor crammed into squalid tail compartments overseen by armed guards.

The film, Snowpiercer, follows Evans in the leading role of Curtis Everett as the poorer passengers revolt against their wealthy co-passengers.

Over on Rotten Tomatoes it scores a near-perfect rating with movie critics, coming in at 94% off of more than 250 professional reviews.

Manuel Sao Benton, of MSB Reviews, said: "Snowpiercer is one of the best films of the respective decade.

"With a brilliant screenplay, Bong Joon-ho delivers an extremely complex narrative, filled with emotionally shocking character development, and featuring excellent stunt work."

Brian Eggert, of Deep Focus Review, said: "Thoughtful, provocative, and far more enjoyable than your average blockbuster, Snowpiercer's pure entertainment value is outmatched only by its sobering commentary on the continual inhumanity of the human race."

Robert Sims, from Lights Camera Austin, wrote: "Snowpiercer examines a class system that refuses to die no matter the circumstances.

"Director Bong Joon-ho constantly asks whether a person must accept their preordained place in society for the sake of balance and harmony."

Snowpiercer itself is based on the 1982 French climate fiction graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette.

In a recent interview with GQ, Evans said he 'didn't quite get' the Snowpiecer script.

He said: "Whenever it’s a movie that’s world-building, you’re creating a completely separate environment. There’s just kind of a conceit that you have to say, ‘okay, so everyone just accepts this, this is just how it is? No one is kind of outraged that this is the structure? That’s just the norm, okay'.”

Snowpiercer is critically acclaimed.

Evans added: "You kind of have to decide what part of your brain do you spend time wrapping your head around. Do you go the intimate road and just kind of make it about the character?

"Do you try and make it about what it took for that society to level into that place? It’s a challenge, but you get to watch Tilda Swinton in the movie and you get to watch her approach to this larger than life character."

He went on: "Director Bong is such a visionary. When you’re working with someone that knows exactly what they want, even if it’s not exactly the way you saw it, it breeds trust."

Snowpiercer leaves Netflix on 29 February.
