This movie will really keep you thinking “what if?”
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan
Director: Duncan Jones
Writer: Ben Ripley
Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes with a jolt to find himself on a commuter train heading into Chicago. Although the other passengers all seem to know him, he has absolutely no idea where—or even who—he is. The last thing Colter remembers is flying a helicopter mission in Iraq, but here he is in someone else’s life going through someone else’s morning commute. Before he can do anything an express train zooms by on the opposite track and a bomb explodes, seemingly killing Colter and all the other passengers.
This one is a real good movie for the wild thinkers. Thought-provoking, indeed. I loved how the director arranged the revelation of facts and conflict of the story. The ending however, put me on a very thin line between liking it or hating it. I chose to like it. I chose to like it with all due respect to all those who made this movie possible.
Nevertheless, I have learned lessons from this movie.
First, is to tell myself that everything’s going to be okay. I mean, even when you already know that everything won’t be, it is always up to you to set your mind. In the end, it is just a matter of you accepting the fact that everything’s gonna get screwed, or you being a man and standing up for the good thing.
How about you? If you have just a minute left for your life, will you make every second of your life count?
I tell you one thing, everything’s gonna be okay.
