First thing I’ve seen in a long time that didn’t feel like it was made by committee.
The movie doesn’t make logical sense, but fables don’t have to. I enjoyed how each train car was like its own video game level, a new surprise and set of objectives behind every door. (A welcome video game influence, like Oldboy’s side-scrolling fight scene and unlike Edge of Tomorrow’s clever, if uninspired, re-spawning.)
Tilda Swinton is, as ever, freaky and rad.
