While it wasn't as clever as press made it out to be - I can't deny that it held my attention. After all, it is a tried and true formula à la Groundhog Day. Cannot avoid mentioning last year's Edge of Tomorrow - a more riveting film that rides the same tracks. In any case, Jake gives a satisfactory performance, Monaghan is as lovely and underused as ever, and everybody else is dull. Good effects, though.
The clean lines of sleek, silver train travel and a kind of wide-eyed belief in technology make this reminiscent an of clean-cut, early '60s take on Americana. I can imagine Frank Sinatra watching the Saul Bass title sequence and contentedly sipping his bourbon (on the rocks, of course).
Yes, Moon was brilliant. No, what followed wasn't as inspirational, but I didn't feel like I had been cheated on. I mean, if you forget about every single law of Physics ever learned and if you just focus on Jake Gyllenhaal trying to be a strong leading man and take the story to course without you ever wondering how so much is failing there, you will be entertained and your popcorn will have a value for its money.
Altro notevole lavoro di Jones che conferma la bontà delle sue pellicole dopo l'ottimo Moon.Qui la storia è più complicata,le spiegazioni abb. arzigogolate ma la bravura di Duncan sta nel proporre un treno sempre diverso e una tensione sempre maggiore.Forse il finale troppo hollywoodiano si poteva evitare,ma nel complesso è un lavoro che colpisce alla grande.
It was a pretty solid movie up until the end. I mean, in the last 10 minutes everything goes against what had been said during the whole movie just to create a crowd pleaser. I reckon that during the shoot someone went: "Oh, we have a pretty good movie here! What can we do to completely fuck it up?!"
