Source Code (2011)
Critic Consensus: Finding the human story amidst the action, director Duncan Jones and charming Jake Gyllenhaal craft a smart, satisfying sci-fi thriller.
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 re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack. -- (C) Summit … More

Critic Reviews for Source Code
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.
Holes in logic get swept aside by the brisk pace and stimulating tale.
Audience Reviews for Source Code
An interesting premise put together nicely by Duncan Jones (Moon). Thats two for two on his movies so far. And Jake Gyllenhaal was excellent, made me completely forget about Prince of Persia.
In the future not only will we be able to see the film Groundhog Day again, but we'll also be able to live it ... only it'll be the same few minutes, over and over again. Just a little trifle of fun laughing down the dark dark halls of the time travel trope, the dark of the twilight zone. Very good.
Fun. Groundhog Day + Deja Vu. Can't go wrong with that.
