Source Code - D. Jones (2011)


Gorgeous Jake Gyllenhaal rousing from a nap with someone else's - inevitably plainer - face may not sound like the best of takeoffs for this drama in what a protagonist terms "quantum mechanics". (Or "time reassignment". Much clearer, yeah?)

However, to the best of my knowledge recollection, not that many films have the courage to play the same scene over and over, varying only slightly, as is the case here, where my favourite hunk has eight minutes on a train to prevent two bombs from exploding.


'Groundhog Day' comes to mind, but I have to say Gyllenhaal beats Murray as eyecandy, though marmots are most certainly more fun than ticking bombs.
