Week 15: Source Code

One of the movies we saw for week 15 was Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal.  Like Deb said, it was a Groundhog Day type of movie.  You keep reliving the same 8 minutes over and over.  At first I thought it would be one of those movies (like Groundhog Day) where you groan after the third time reliving the same moments.  But they did a good job of "fast forwarding" through the same ole same ole. 

Jake Gyllenhaal did a good job.  He has a very genuine feel to his acting.  It was sort of a one man show but he pulled it off.  Of course, it was a little tense knowing that every 8 minutes a train was going to blow up but that's all part of an action movie, right?  And the idea was thought provoking. 

Overall I think it was a solid action movie.  It's worth seeing but may not leave a huge lasting impression.

To Sum it up: Tense, thought provoking and your basic action thriller.
