Duncan Jones(Moon) directs a very good sci-fi thriller. Colter Stevens(Jake Gyllenhaal), a US army heicopter pilot suddenly finds himself on a train and he appears to have a new identity. After 8 minutes on the train Colter is hurled back into his own body after a terrible accident. Once back into his self, Colter communicates with a woman who tells him he will go back to the train so he can stop a terrorist attack. Like a serious Groundhog Day, Colter goes back time and time again to the train(for just 8 minutes each time) to figure out who the terrorist is.
This is a good movie, but my only beef is that a little too much is revealed and the ending should have been about 3 minutes before the actual ending. There would have been a point that would have been perfect, but the powers-that-be decided to have a more crowd pleasing movie that could have been more thought provoking if they ended the movie just a little before. Still, it is a good ride.
