Source Code - Movie Review

Source Code stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Captain Colter Stevens, who wakes up in the body of another man. He finds out he is part of a government experiment called the Source Code, which enables him to enter another body and take that person's identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. Stevens is part of a mission to find the bomber of the train that he is on. The bomber had already killed everyone on the train and has threatened to kill millions of other people by bombing downtown Chicago. It is up to Stevens to figure out who the bomber is and prevent another attack by reliving the same last 8 minutes over and over again, gathering more clues each time until the mystery is solved.

I thought Source Code was a great movie! It's fast-paced and you get so involved in the movie and can really feel the confusion and urgency of what Colter Stevens is going through. Great acting by Gyllenhaal. I'm not so sure about the character falling in love so quickly though, but I guess everyone loves a little romance. The concept of the Source Code is very interesting (it boggles my mind when I think about it) and the twists were unbelievable! I'm not going to spoil it for you, but it's definitely a must-see flick!! Highly recommend!

Source Code comes out this Friday, April 1st. For more information, check out the website here.

Wow, this is a smart critique! You know, among all the reviews I've read about Source Code, the common positive thing was that director Duncan Jones did a great job in telling the story. Actually, I made the same remark in my own Source Code movie review. Will you please check it out? Thanks!
