Source Code

Monday, October 10, 2011

I really like to watch mystery and Sci-Fi movies. So few weeks ago I watched this film Source Code and it was amazing. The whole concept is fresh, though sometimes it might sound far-fetched. You don’t have to understand the science to enjoy this movie.

Jake Gyllenhaal gives a great performance as Colter Stevens, who is harried, confused man who eventually finds out the purpose in what he's been tasked to do. Michelle Monaghan also has a fantastic role as Christina Warren, the pretty girl in the train who attracts Colter’s heart.
There were some repeating scenes since Cotler has to go several times to the past, to the same 8 minute duration, in order to identify the terrorist. Even though those are repeating scenes, Riplay and Jone have done a good job making each scene little bit differently and it wasn’t boring.
Someway, this tremendous movie reminded me of the quote from the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Without this emotion, we are only robots.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
