Don’t read if you don’t want a potential spoiler.::
Here’s what I was about to say: Source Code was exTREMEly FUN, SUSPENSEFUL, attention-holding. Pretty smart plot. Good characters who got pretty well developed for this kind of movie.
Up until these last twelve minutes (that’s how far I have to go). This is a cheap OUT. The character named Goodwin is really going to make such an idiotic choice? What idiotic plot writing. Why would the creators give up their creativity now? Cooling down, I guess I have to say that predictability tends to make me wince. Maybe that’s not the same for everyone, but is it not a central element to creativity?
Well then…my mind was blown again. (“Again?”) And though I still think Goodwin was being stupid, it did work out so creatively. The story was not predictable like I was fearing it would be with those twelve minutes left to go. It reached up from behind, like Captain Stevens did to the Frost guy on his last run through the train scenario, and presented new possibilities to me (“new worlds,” in fact). It wrapped the ending round with ribbons of unendingly possible beginnings for the protagonist, just as it took the story thread through a needle’s eye to leave us with a powerful hope for those left in the building that most of the movie took place in.
