It's just a dumb Hollywood film.

The cheesiness at times was a negative but I enjoyed the simple effective narrative, and the cast delivers nicely.

This slickly crafted, time-shifting thriller from director Duncan Jones takes an intriguing premise and mixes it with some compelling twists and turns that make it a fun ride from start to finish.

Source Code is a streamlined, suspenseful sci-fi thriller served with heart.

Mostly, though, Source Code satisfies as both science-fiction and crime thriller.

[Director] Duncan Jones isn't just creating his own career; he's helping to transform a genre.

This is a film that feels 'smart' without desperately trying to be so. The characters are few and the settings limited, such that complex ideas can peacefully exist inside the film, without tying the narrative in knots.

If you can overlook the pseudoscientific explanations...you'll be treated to a trippy, head-spinning sci-fi drama with amazingly organic, human characters at its core.

As science fiction, it's a little shaky. But it's definitely worth seeing-Duncan Jones has delivered an entertaining, fast-paced thriller with characters you actually care about.

...one heck of a time-bending sci-fi thriller...

... Source Code is a well-made sci-fi thriller, continuing the evolution of an interesting filmmaker in Duncan Jones.

Source Code is Quantum Leap meets Groundhog Day meets a train. Silly but fun.

I'd rather flirt with Michelle Monaghan than hunt down a mad bomber, too.

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.
March 23, 2014
Source Code is a sci-fi thriller that simply shouldn't work as well as it does.
March 23, 2014
It's this emotional arc underlying the ticking-time-bomb plot that keeps the movie from succumbing to its flaws.
March 23, 2014
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.
March 23, 2014
Source Code takes off with some intense performances and an inventive story that pulls you in and makes you work for the payoff.
March 23, 2014
A thoroughly original, imaginative and fast-flying tale in which the Groundhog Day aspects are secondary to a story of service, honor and dedication.
March 23, 2014
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.
