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.
May 12, 2018 heck of a time-bending sci-fi thriller...

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.

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.

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

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.

More like a thinking man's Speed as opposed to a what-were-you-thinking man's Déjà Vu.

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

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