Source Code is just like a Phillip K. Dick story except that it doesn’t suck – which is often the case with movie adaptations of P.K.Dick stories. In fact as soon as the movie was over I was checking my IMDb app just to be sure.
The plot is well thought out and the story unravels at a rapid pace. The audience gets to understand more and more about what is going on along with Capt. Stephens, the main character played by Jake Gyllenhaal.
Best of all the science fiction behind the movie is incidental to the story. It’s mainly about characters and choices. The story manages to avoid the pitfalls that usually accompany parallel universe, time travel, alternate reality type plots.
I really can’t say much else without getting into essentials of the story which are best left to be viewed. And fortunately the previews don’t give anything important away. So go see it before someone tells you about it and ruins it for you. Because unlike the movie you can’t go back and change things. 🙂
Or can you…?
