That was a very good explanation by Mike.I've seen the movie several times, so let me try to explain.....
1. we never see Jake's character on the other side. what the film is going off of is the theory of the multiverse, wherein each decisions we makes breaks off into a different alternate reality. What the military was doing was transporting his consciousness and "hijacking" someone else in the other universe. Allowing him to control that person's body until the crash happens. every time he went through the process he had to "jump" to another reality that was just about identical until he got it right. The whole time they made it seem like he was time jumping. you realize at the end that he was REALITY jumping and could stay there if he so wished.
2. what happens at the end of the last act is that in averting the train accident at the end he was actually able to STAY in that other person's body and BECOME him, so to speak. Living in that alternate reality along with that version of Christina
I'll give you the 2012 version of Red Dawn as that had so much potential and just flopped for some reason...but I didn't think The Last Stand was that bad when taken for what it was...For some reason I enjoy that sub-genre. I'll take those all day long before a badly written and acted film (Red Dawn  and The Last Stand come to mind).
Mine or Mike's?I'm looking forward to more of your reviews!
I meant yours but I read everyone'sMine or Mike's?
Got-cha. :TI meant yours but I read everyone's
Indeed; that's the best way to do it with my reviews because of the in-depth plot analysis I do...:TI usually just read the audio portion of the reviews before I see the movie and then come back, read the rest and post my thoughts. I'm looking forward to seeing the Hansel & Gretel movie for the audio alone!
If you're even remotely a fan of Richard Donner's Superman II -- arguably the best of the original franchise -- you're gonna love what Zack Snyder did with this. It's everything they couldn't do with the restrictions of the technology of the time...finally, Supes and Zod battle it out over Metropolis in a fight scene the way it was meant to be viewed! :T:TOh and tomorrow night I should be seeing The Man of Steel so I'll hopefully have some positive things to say about it later in the week!
