(This review may contain spoilers).
I originally saw this film at the cinema and when it was showing on television, I decided to watch it.
Although this film is quite similar to several existing films (Deja Vu springs to mind), I still found it really entertaining to watch. When repeating a day or an event, Groundhog Day style, I’d imagine it would be really hard to keep the core elements the same, while having the characters react within those parameters to how the one person who knows what’s going on.
The idea of Source Code was a really intriguing one, but if someone was really in that kind of situation, I’d imagine they’d find it just as difficult to ‘separate’ from the people on the train. I felt that was a particularly realistic plot.
I liked the relationships that Colter formed with Christina and Goodwin. It was interesting to see the contrast between him with a fellow soldier and with someone he ended up being romantically interested in.
Colter was an easy character to empathise with, in my opinion. I felt that the issues he was facing were shown really well in the film. There were some darker moments in this film, but it was good to see that there was also some comedy moments.
There were quite a number of actors I recognised in this film and I found them all very believable in their roles.
I did think that there were still some questions left by the end of the film, but nothing really major. This film was really entertaining and managed to hold my attention throughout. I wouldn’t mind watching it again.
