I don’t know where to start on this movie. There was so much going on my head was literally spinning! If you’re looking for something to think about, talk about, discuss, ponder, whatever, this is your flick.
Awesome surprise – Russell Peters is in this movie! Of course there are some great comedic moments and Jake Gyllenhaal is the cutest thing ever! Although we’re looking at the same scene repeated over and over again, there’s always a different take and Jake just goes crazy! What would you do if you had less than a minute to live? I guess you’d be pretty crazy too.
I know we’re talking ‘quantum physics’ and this whole time space continuum whatever and it’s super confusing, but this just went too far. I felt like I was trapped like Agent Stevens trying to find out exactly what was going on. We find out quickly enough that he’s already dead! Does this help the situation or is it just making it all even more confusing? Great drama and really intense scenes, but it’s a mind f*ck! Are you ready for that? I definitely wasn’t!
There was only one thing that stuck with me – the kiss with Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan. I could feel the passion through the screen. Definitely one of the most memorable kisses I’ve seen in a while. Or maybe I just haven’t had any lip action in a while. Whatever the case, the romance was super cute and I’m glad there was a ‘happy ending’ after all. Although I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to the dead guy Jake’s brain replaced? Does no one care to fill in the blanks on that little tidbit?
I think this highly anticipated futuristic film kind of got lost in translation. It didn’t communicate its thoughts very clearly and we’re left wondering what the f*ck just happened over the last 2 hours. If you want to solve the source code, sure go ahead and watch it. If you want to relax your mind and just watch a screen, do not watch this movie.
