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
Source Code is what the film Inception should've been like. Rather than being basically a different version of the matrix like Inception, this film is actually very entertaining, the plot is fantastic, the action is good, the the characters are fleshed out and very well developed, Jake Glyenhaal does a fantastic job as the main character and is very likable and throughout the film you just want to know whats happening to him. Also the pace of the film is very good, the film is interesting and is very quick and though having a run time of 105 minutes, it really doesn't feel like it because of how entertaining it is.
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.
