Synopsis


Source Code
Jake Gyllenhaal headlines this sci-fi time-travel thriller directed by Moon's Duncan Jones from a script by Ben Ripley and Billy Ray. A bomb explodes on a Chicago train, derailing the locomotive and killing hundreds. In an attempt to identify the bomber and prevent another, larger attack on downtown Chicago, Captain Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) agrees to take part in a clandestine government experiment dubbed "Source Code," which allows him to enter the body of a male passenger during the eight minutes before the man is killed. But during his first trip back, Capt. Stevens fails to gather enough clues to prevent the second attack. With time quickly running out, he repeats the mission ad nauseam in a desperate race to head off one of the most deadly terrorist attacks ever to take place on American soil. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A Stylish, Well Crafted Thriller

    Source Code is an exhilarating movie. It is fast paced, without losing a deep story and emotional connection. The movie puts it's main character in a tense scene, having to find a person who is about to blow up a train. It throws the character(played by Jake Gyllenhaal very well) back into this scene over and over again, with small conversations in between. The story is complex and emotional. It lets Jake's character expand and deepen, and the supporting cast is great. The special effects are well done, and the whole tone keeps you on the edge of your seat. Surprisingly, there is no campy dialogue (something I was expecting from the previews) and it is actually a superb script, making conversations interesting, and later scenes racked with emotion. The whole movies is very great, leaving you excited by its presentation and quality in every aspect in it. The idea to replay a scene over and over again is executed really well, and makes the film very exciting. It is the first truly great film of 2011. I recommend it, to everyone.

    Duncan Jones provides a blockbuster with brains

    It might not be as brilliant as Duncan "Son of Bowie" Jones' first film, the Sam Rockwell-starring sci-fi classic "Moon," but "Source Code" is the type of blockbuster we don't see often: one with brains. The plot is relatively straightforward... or so you think, until Jones starts adding in layer after layer of further intrigue. You'll have figured out the ending before the movie gets there, but you'll be having enough fun by that point that you won't care, and you likely won't see exactly how all the pieces fit into place until the final moments, anyway. It lacks the class and layers of "Moon," perhaps, but it'll put just as big of a smile on your face.

    Starts out kind of slow but picks up. It's a solid sci-fi movie and I was pleased with the ending, although I didn't want to overthink the whole quantum physics angle. Jake is pretty good in it but it also has a good supporting cast led by Jeffrey Wright. I liked how you had to try and figure out who the bomber was, although I figured out where Jake was early on in the beginning.

    I saw this at Best Buy and it was a great price...I vaguely remembered seeing a preview for it a while back and I remembered thinking that it could be good. I decided to give it a try since it was a great price AND it was Blu-ray! My husband and I both enjoyed the movie. It's not a cookie-cutter movie and it was entertaining the entire time. :)

    Action thriller done right

    Actually, it's a Sci-Fi Action Thriller, but the Sci-Fi moniker can scare off some folks, and in this case, it should not. It is first and foremost a thriller, and accepting the implausible science that allows for the basic premise, you're hooked from the get go. This is the movie that made me a Jake Gyllenhaal fan.

    Source Code is a rare film that builds on a genre and takes notes from other similar premises and makes something great out of them. Think Groundhog Day, but with action and time travel. A very fun and entertaining ride that doesn't disappoint! The Bluray disc has great picture and sound as well!

    I got my DVD and case was broken. DVD was fine at least but now I can't give it as a gift. I'll have to order from some where else if I'm going to get my DVD's broken. I'm debating on if I should ever order from Best Buy online. Reason being cause products I order will be broken.

    Good movie. Fun plot. Definitely an enjoyable ride (and the movie literally is a ride on a train). They did a great job with the Ground Hog-ian sequences, as they never come off as repetitiously boring or dull, but have a freshness to each take.
