movie: Source Code

Source Code! Jake Gyllenhaal! What else is there to know? He’s so darned pretty.

Description from IMDB: “An action thriller centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.”

I liked this movie. The story consists of Colter Steven’s character bouncing back and forth between what looks like a wrecked fighter plane cockpit and a commuter train scene that keeps repeating. It starts out the same every time, but it changes as it goes on and he chooses different courses of action.

Most of the plot was pretty predictable, I thought. It also moved a bit slowly at first.

Despite the flaws, it was well executed. The movie had a Lost (tv show) vibe to it, the unanswered questions and Colton’s interaction with the science lab types, all very Dharma.

Source Code wasn’t the greatest movie ever, but it wasn’t bad either. It gets a B.
