Yah, yah, yah. Not bad. Ok. As one of those people who didn't got MOON, I never subscribed to the Duncan Jones appreciation society. This is a fairly decent film. The script does nothing new with time travel - the love story is totally unbelievable and artificial - the ending is...whatever, and...oh fuck it, there's a bomb on a train and it's a fun hour and a bit!
An entertaining and nail-biting (for the most part) sci-fi thriller carried by a fantastic Jake Gyllenhaal. [SPOILER] My main complain is that I think the movie should've ended on the freeze frame on the train and Goodwin disconnecting Stevens (although I understand it may have been a really dark ending) because the third act was rather underwhelming and it takes away the impact built by the first and second act.
A nifty idea (tho already executed via the more appropriate medium of a video game in Jordan Mechner's remarkable 'The Last Express') ironically lacking some of the humanity of Jones' debut. Worryingly, the film has the opposite moral trajectory to 'Groundhog Day' with regards to sexual relations. Phil Connors stops using time magic to bed women, while Colter steals Sean's identity & the feelings Chris has for him.
(...) Nach und nach nähert sich Colter dieser Zeitspanne. Das Paradox: Colter erinnert sich der vorangeganenen Zeit in derselben Zeitspanne wie es geschah. Echt-Zeit-Erinnerungen. Mehr noch: Er kann sich auch für Christina und andere im Zug MITERINNERN. Doch wie geht das? Ein Mann, der ums Überleben kämpft und derartig umfangreiche Erinnerungen hat?(...)
