Movie Info

When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he's ever known, he learns he's part of a government experiment called the Source Code, a program that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter

Ultimately, Source Code makes good on its Hitchcockian opening sequence -- it may pale in comparison to the master, but it's a fun, puzzle-filled ride, with excellent pacing and a mounting uneasiness that recalls the best episodes of The Twilight Zone.

Source Code is a sci-fi thriller that simply shouldn't work as well as it does.

It's this emotional arc underlying the ticking-time-bomb plot that keeps the movie from succumbing to its flaws.

A thoroughly original, imaginative and fast-flying tale in which the Groundhog Day aspects are secondary to a story of service, honor and dedication.

A casually brainy and surprisingly thoughtful blockbuster... that is ultimately as much about saving the day as seizing it.

Source Code is a mind-bending minor classic of its type, a sort of Groundhog Day with terrorism and fewer weather reports. It's as if The Matrix hopped aboard a rapid-transit line and got derailed into the American military bureaucracy.

Source Code takes off with some intense performances and an inventive story that pulls you in and makes you work for the payoff.

Jones proves with Source Code that he understands how to pace a traditional thriller, and Gyllenhaal's display of comedic chops, confident bravado and tender sympathies prove that the 30-year-old actor has arrived at leading-man status.

Jones ... has a light touch of the sort that enlivens the material without trivializing it-think of it as tongue delicately navigating the perimeter of cheek

Fantastic pacing, an excellent performance by Gyllenhaal and smart storytelling make this a wonderful film.

In spite of an over-complicated premise, Source Code succeeds in offering an above-average thriller -- with interesting sci-fi ideas for genre buffs to debate.

"Source Code" is a fascinating sci-fi action film that works surprisingly well given the scant logic it gets away with.

Jones' conception of how the universe works pretty much eliminates the possibility of drama.

Were it supremely confident of knowing when to show its trump card, the film could have gone even further.

Source Code is genuinely compelling and - whilst not always successful - remains a fine example of an intelligent, modern sci-fi thriller.

November 19, 2011 Full Review Source: The Sabotage Times

Uma ficção científica exemplar: apresenta um conceito interessante, explora-o a fundo e, de quebra, nos apresenta a questões de fundo filosófico-existencial enquanto cria personagens complexos e tocantes.

This intelligent sci-fi-thriller is a worthy follow-up to Moon that marks Jones as one of the best new filmmakers around.

Audience Reviews for Source Code

Fun. Groundhog Day + Deja Vu. Can't go wrong with that.

An ex-army pilot finds himself living another man's life and discovers that he is operating within a secret government project where they send a person's consciousness back in time to discover terrorist threats. Duncan Jones' follow up to the pleasingly old school sci-fi Moon is a variation on the idea behind La Jetee, the short that inspired Twelve Monkeys. Basically it's Groundhog Day done as thriller instead of comedy as Jake Gyllenhaal lives the same eight minutes of a commuter's life over and over until he discovers the identity of the bomber who blew up the train he was travelling on. The concept will be familiar to those old enough to remember 90s tea-time sci fi show Quantum Leap and it also shares ingredients with films such as Robocop and Total Recall. To be honest, take away the sci-fi twist and it's executed very like many other Hollywood action thrillers but it has enough invention and charm to raise it above its main competition (namely Next and Deja Vu) thanks to some likeable characters and interesting visuals. It feels a lot more run of the mill and predictable than Moon but anyone who found Inception a little too dense for their taste, it's a more easily digestible, bite-size alternative.

Preposterous but considerably entertaining whodunit with hitchcockian overtones. Mostly ruined by its accommodative ending.
