Did they cut it, or is it original length?

I have mixed feelings about this movie (some aspects of the train design just made no sense further up it went). Overall, I enjoyed it. More violent, darker, than I expected.

Set the movie not 20 years but 50+ years into the future. Make it a giant
spaceship in a slow, low (annual revolution needed for story) orbit over a
frozen earth. Call the film Ice Ark.

That solves all the train design, mechanics/logistic issues, ice piercing logic
problems. Send me my check Boon Joon-ho.

Oh yeah, you need to come up with a better reason for why the kids are
being taken other than they don't have
Spoiler
elongated screw drivers.

That far into the future, I'd imagine they'd have 3D printers with metal capabilities.

What about the train design didn't make sense?

Oh wow, cool picture. That certainly adds perspective. In the film, they moved VERY quickly through the residential areas, so it seemed that there was just a handful, plus cars that seem (comparatively) wasteful. Such as the swimming pool car (which itself seemed oddly designed).

With that diagram, it makes more sense...but in the film, they felt odd. Perhaps it was a feeling the space was as inefficiently designed.

Also...where is the dining or food prep car for the non-slums?
