The Movie

Synopsis

Helicopter pilot Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) is part of a top-secret military operation that enables him to experience the last few minutes in the life of Sean Fentress, a man who died in a commuter-train explosion. The purpose of Colter’s mission is to learn the identity of the bomber and prevent a similar catastrophe. As Colter lives Sean’s final moments, he becomes more certain that he can prevent the first tragedy from occurring — as long as he doesn’t run out of time.

My Thoughts

I give the Source Code Blu-ray a B.

Imagine having the ability to see everything that happened to a person after they died within an 8 minute period. In this film, it is a reality. It was originally released in 2011 and even in my 2nd viewing, my eyes were still glued to the screen.

I loved Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens.  It was interesting to see how he progressed throughout the movie.  At first, he didn’t know what was going on but once he knew what his mission was.  He tried everything he could to find the bomber of the train.  In the end, the Source Code was more advanced then what the creator had thought it to be.
