What begins as a highly engaging science-fiction quandary steadily devolves into a less sincere and confusing predicament that opens itself up for a multitude of plot-holes.

Michelle Monaghan adds tremendous depth and humanity to a woman who could have easily just been a romanticized caricature or afterthought.

Source Code is a really strong film. It is a significantly more "pop" film than Moon was and will probably reach a wider audience.

As he did with Moon, [Duncan] Jones, together with screenwriter [Ben] Ripley, tackle concepts few dare to imagine let alone address.

One of the most exhilarating and satisfying films I've seen.

[A] bold - and often brilliant - piece of action filmmaking, which artfully blends notions of identity and fate with blockbuster effects and some snappy editing.

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.

[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 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.
