Source Code Movie Review By Sye Rodriguez

Source Code Trailer

If you’ve found yourself reading this passage, hold onto your self tight.  You’ve entered into another dimension and it’s known as the “Source Code.”  Jake Gyllenhaal (Captain Stevens) exists here, as in the reality you lived in up till now, but he’s another person, or maybe 2.  Since his early stardom in American Pie, Jake’s transformed into another being you’re not so familiar with.  Don’t worry, everything is going to be okay.

Before I entered the “Source Code” I was looking at a website reading a review about the movie.  I thought I knew who I was, but I hadn’t seen the movie yet.  The movie critic, who did the review, gave the “Source Code” 4 stars;  That was in another reality; One I was yet to enter.

The beautiful Michelle Monaghan (Christina), had not been fully illuminated before my eyes before I entered the “Source Code.”  Michelle plays a role of the person you always knew was out there, but almost lost hope in ever finding.  Duncan Jones, who directed the film, and writer Ben Ripley knew you’d been searching for Christina (Michelle) and wanted you to make the connection.

Jake is not who you thought he was, and that’s probably a good thing for him.  His acting skills become him in the “Source Code;” as you will become You.  Not the you who’s reading this review right now; The You who you are after the “Source Code” has been implemented.

More than honorable mentions in the film are Goodwin (Vera Farmiga) and Dr. Walter Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright).  Whether it was the “Source Code” that brought their skills out or it existed somewhere within them is yours to ponder over.  It’s sure, however, they both play the roles any film star must envy.

If you’ve been waiting for a good movie to get you out of the house, wait no more.  I’m not getting paid to tell you this, but if you don’t like this film, there’s a glitch somewhere in your circuitry.  I would tell you more than I have already, but that might destroy the beauty for you.  Don’t worry.  Everything is going to be okay.  You’ll understand after you’ve entered the “Source Code!”
