Jake Gyllenhaal headlines this sci-fi time-travel thriller directed by Moon's Duncan Jones from a script by Ben Ripley and Billy Ray. A bomb explodes on a Chicago train, derailing the locomotive and killing hundreds. In an attempt to identify the bomber and prevent another, larger attack on downtown Chicago, Captain Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) agrees to take part in a clandestine government experiment dubbed "Source Code," which allows him to enter the body of a male passenger during the eight minutes before the man is killed. But during his first trip back, Capt. Stevens fails to gather enough clues to prevent the second attack. With time quickly running out, he repeats the mission ad nauseam in a desperate race to head off one of the most deadly terrorist attacks ever to take place on American soil. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Interesting movie that held my interest. Not great or world changing but pretty good and very good for a rental that you can send back. Had me guessing, trying to figure out what would happen next and I like that from a movie. Would recommend adding this to your list.
I would have given this movie 5 stars - except that it was a little hard to follow sometimes - the action and story line was really fast - in fact, we watched it a second time to pick up a few things we missed. It was a great movie and Jake was great. The premise was well thought out and the story and action kept us glued to our seats. (Who thinks up this stuff? fantastic.....) Don't want to give the ending away, but pay attention as it approaches the final scenes - it will surprise you and you'll want to watch it one more time (I think). Rent it!
