About the Movie

When soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of an experimental government program called the “Source Code” that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. Armed with the task of identifying the bomber of a Chicago commuter train, Colter must re-live the incident over and over again, gathering clues until he can solve the mystery and prevent an even deadlier second terrorist attack. Captivating from start to finish, Source Code is the mind-blowing action thriller Richard Roeper calls “Confounding, exhilarating, challenging--and the best movie I've seen so far in 2011.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Holes in logic get swept aside by the brisk pace and stimulating tale. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jan 3, 2012

Fresh: The movie is a formally disciplined piece of work, a triumph of movie syntax, made with a sense of rhythm and pace, and Gyllenhaal, who is always good at conveying anxiety, gives Stevens's desperation a comic edge. – David Denby, New Yorker, Apr 27, 2011

Fresh: A thoroughly original, imaginative and fast-flying tale in which the Groundhog Day aspects are secondary to a story of service, honor and dedication. – Frank Lovece, Newsday, Mar 23, 2014

Fresh: 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. – Una LaMarche, New York Observer, Mar 23, 2014

Heartfelt, Thrilling, just plain fun!

"Source Code", as illogical as it is plotwise, is still an original, nail-biting film.
The story starts with Jake Gyllenhal waking up in a train he never remembers boarding, in a body that he doesn't belong to him. He searches for anwsers only to find the train blowing up. He then wakes up in an unusual container were Vera Farmiga tells him that the U.S. government needs him to relive the last 8 minutes of a dead man's life over and over again until he finds the bomb that destroyed the train, and the person who placed it there. There are alot of details to the story, so I'll leave the rest for the viewer to discover.
The acting is actually much better than I first expected. Jake Gyllenhal, Michelle Monaghan, and Vera Farminda all give excellent performances, not Oscar excellent, but as high caliber as action movies go. They felt interesting, realistic, and even show some heart in their roles, a rare thing for action movies these days.
Viewers may also notice that "Source Code" shares some similarites with last year's "Inception". In "Inception", the characters had to go down to multiple levels, but in "Source Code", Jake Gyllenhal just repeats the same level over and over again for an hour-and-a-half. I thought that the idea would become boring pretty quickly, but they managed to make it different, yet equally exciting to the story every time.
So "Source Code" was one of those films were I walked in with low expectations, but the further the movie progressed, I was interested AND excited by what I was watching. While "Source Code" falls just short of being a classic, it's still one the best films of 2011 so far, and a first-rate action/thriller. Two thumbs up.
"Everything's going to be okay." - Michelle Monaghan
