SOURCE CODE (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Source Code—psychological drama at its very best—completely outdoes itself in almost every category a movie can be critiqued in. Jake Gyllenhaal keeps his audience guessing from the beginning to the very end of this movie with his great interpretations of every scene. The flashbacks are some of the best in the business with no lag-time and no ‘what was that all about?’  questions. The movie is well-sequenced, a true ‘sit-down-and-watch’ film. This is a perfect movie to watch in streaming because it is so packed with entertainment value that one does not want to take that sometimes needful break to attend to a phone call or other matter. Streaming allows the audience to not miss a single scene in this action thriller. Watch for Jeffrey Wright, a perfect pick for the research doctor. The movie is the perfect addition to the home video library that no guest will mind watching more than once.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Completely fresh. Well-written. Perfect timing. Completely involves its audience. Presents a perfect twist at its conclusion. It’s a ‘do not miss’ action, sci-fi movie that more than earns its time investment and dollars.
