Source Code

4:22:00 PM

I haven't posted anything here because there's not much to talk about and I don't want to talk anything about school. But then last week, just a random day, the boyfriend and I went to the mall to just hang out and maybe shop for new clothes (this is just a joke! lol). I told him I want to watch Red Riding Hood. I heard from a friend that it's pretty good. Unfortunately, it's not showing in the theaters anymore. So we ended watching Source Code instead.

From Wikipedia:


Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a decorated army helicopter pilot whose last memory is of his recent mission in Afghanistan, flying with his team while taking on enemy gunfire. He awakens on a train headed for Chicago with no memory of how he arrived there. His reflection is of a different man and his wallet says his name is Sean Fentress. Sitting across from him is a woman named Christina Warren (Michelle Monaghan) who seems to know him as Fentress. Before he can understand what is happening, a bomb goes off and destroys the train.


Stevens then awakens inside a chamber, where he is greeted through a computer screen by Capt. Colleen Goodwin (Vera Farmiga), an Air Force officer who tells Stevens that he is inside the Source Code, a program that allows him to take over someone's body in his or her last eight minutes of life. Earlier that day, a bomb exploded and destroyed a train headed into Chicago, the train that Stevens awoke on. Stevens' mission is to locate the bomb, discover who built it, and report back to Goodwin before the bomber can detonate a second larger bomb, a dirty nuclear device, in downtown Chicago, which could cause the deaths of millions of people.

It was a great movie. We really enjoyed it. At first the bf was hesitant to watch it because he never heard anything about it. I saw the trailer before and it looked interesting. I didn't know it's already showing in theaters until we went there. Since source code means another thing for both of us (I'm an IT student and he's one before), we thought it's something about computer programs which is kinda lame for a movie. Before we bought tickets, we checked some reviews first! Good thing my phone is handy that I can browse the net wherever I am. Well I guess we're both surprised that it's not what we thought it would be.

Source Code is an action thriller kinda like sci-fi movie. I think Jake Gyllenhaal did a great job here. He portrayed the soldier's character very well. The plot is unpredictable and the story is compelling. It made us wonder from the back of our minds at first but when we're already in middle of the movie, it's already full of excitement. The movie is also fast-paced so you won't get bored. The movie lasted after just an hour and a half. Kinda short but it's worth to watch! 

I can't remember the last movie we watched in theaters so pretty much this is the first movie we watched  in the theaters this year.
