Review: Source Code

Source Code has been out for a few weeks now.  My review, then, is late to the little Groundhog Day high tea that surrounded its release.  No matter.  Here in Chicago, it actually snowed yesterday.  This was disappointing for everyone, I think, as such an occurrence tends to be.  We dealt with it, but for some reason (I'll be honest) it took a lot out of me.  I'm dead tired, a couple posts behind, and Source Code has already been praised quite enough.  Too much, maybe.  Anyway, Source Code is partially set in Chicago.  With the weather now, the sunshine on film appears to be some sort of otherworld, fictional Chicago.  It's maps and grids are foreign, the Metra has been rechristened, and it's a Chicago in which one resident seems to believe that bringing another resident to visit Millennium Park's mirrored Cloud Gate ("The Bean") sculpture is a novel concept, not at all touristy, and something they'd be certain not to have seen before.  Funny...
