Favorite Movie Quotes:
Everything is going to be okay.
Right from the first minute, the movie is like a time bomb that is set off and is ticking towards the climax with it's count-down timer. Literally, there were no dull moments and the viewers are constantly made to ponder over the details that are presented incisively. The motive of the Protagonist is established in the very beginning moments of the film which makes it intriguing.
I took your advice. It was good advice, thank you.
This movie is probably the first ever movie that I have watched, which doesn't have an Antagonist. The prominent aspect of the story lies in unraveling and investigating the events in the past. And hence, there are no intimidating antagonists. Interesting point to note here is, this absence of Antagonist does not diminish the film in anyway.
What would you do if you knew you only had one minute to live?
Evidently, the performance of Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely terrific and elevates the movie in it's own tone. The story being set-up on the outskirts of Chicago city, was charming to watch. The most highlighting point of the movie is it's climax, wherein a twist is inserted just when the viewers think it's all over. I kinda was impressed with this climax twist. It sure does leave you confused and ruminating.
One of these days, the right crisis is going to rear it's head, and Source Code is going to have it's moment in the sun.
Source Code, although possessing a redundant plot, contains a genuine treatment and a paced screenplay, making it an absolutely entertaining watch. If you're a fan of thrillers, then don't miss this.
