      Alec C If you were given a second chance, would you take it? As an army pilot finds himself in a different body on a train about to be hit with a terrorist attack, he must find the bomber before it's too late. An impressive premise with some dangerous stakes, Jake Gyllenhaal keeps the film grounded with his all-too human struggle! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Sánchez Moran K Una película muy buena y no muy alargada aunque un poco confuso el final Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Lee R Good stuff. Kept me engaged and leaning forward to figure out where it was going. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Jr B I would rate this movie a 8.6!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review David d Impressive. The premisse resembles Edge of Tomorrow (rather the other way around as Edge.. was made later): man has a chance to go back in time over and over again, learns from his mistakes on every occasion to finally get his mission right. There the similarities end. While Edge.. relies more on spectacle and balls, Source code is a 'smaller' film in the sense of locations and actors, but better in depth of personalities, emotions, tension arc and development. At least I was very impressed and step by step drawn into the story and the personalities. After the surprise twist at the finish, it keeps you thinking for a long time about it all. That there may be flaws in the logic, is secundary except perhaps for some physics adepts who may find faults with most SF stories,. Impressive. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review Kauã M At first, an extremely predictable and generic plot, but in a surprising way the story and relationship of the characters becomes captivating, making the plot a great combination of scifi and thriller, delivering a great film.

      Una LaMarche Observer 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. Mar 23, 2014 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star Source Code is a sci-fi thriller that simply shouldn't work as well as it does. Rated: 3/4 Mar 23, 2014 Full Review John Swansburg Slate It's this emotional arc underlying the ticking-time-bomb plot that keeps the movie from succumbing to its flaws. Mar 23, 2014 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Source Code delivers enough suspense to appease general audiences but lacks even coherent hypothetical science that will invite heady discussions of multiverse logic and quantum physics among those concerned about such things. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 31, 2023 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... a nifty mystery with snappy action and a real paranoid atmosphere for our (correctly) suspicious hero... Aug 5, 2022 Full Review Michael Clark Epoch Times It might and does take until the last scene to do so, but every plot thread is sewn-up, and there isn't a clue doled out along the way that doesn't make sense or fit into the final puzzle. Its as close to perfect as a screenplay can get. Rated: 4.5/5 Mar 21, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
