This is one of the best sic-fi movies I have seen in ages. Original concept, and constant action with a feel good ending.
its good, its diferent, could do a lot worse for a saturday night movie
The worst picture I have ever seen.
I certainly do not recommend this movie
Highly recommend this riveting sci -fi.
Very enjoyable movie. Everyone liked this movie, young & old. Effects were good.
Sensational, really enjoyed this movie.
Wasn't what i was expecting, but enjoyable. Didn't have me checking my watch!
Stunning in HD!
A very 'complete' story, very hard to find these days...A very good ending, not disappointed at all, love it! 4 stars is yours!
Non-linear sort of movie (think alternative stories/ universe(s) as depicted in classic movies such as Ground Hog Day, Sliding Doors or Rashomon, etc.)
The cinematography was not bad, for instance I liked the aerial views of Chicago at the very beginning, or a great "frozen scene" in the very last "8 minutes" block; the frozen scene matched very well the over all theme/character of the movie (time travel, loops in time, end of life moment, etc.). What I did not like was that whole silly romantic theme, how unlikely and cloyingly sweet, Michelle Monaghan is overacting, as if it was a sweet romantic comedy, annoying ending, as many people have already mentioned below. So, "sleek and shallow" is a good description of this flick, indeed. As for a concept of entering the thoughts of people 8 minutes before their sudden death, the thoughts would be about an exam they have next day at school, or a medical condition of their parents or just admiring views from the window of the train. They would not think about the content of their suitcases, etc. So, from logical point of view it is not convincing at all. Overall 3 and a half stars.
Three stars for nice visuals and basic concept, but I was disappointed by the poorly developed explanation of the enabling technology and the somewhat gratuitous "romantic" angle.
We REALLY enjoyed this one! It was like a super hi-tech sort of Ground Hog Day, with lots of mystery and a touch of romance. I don't readily give 5 Stars, but this one is definitely worth your time. Steve
Provoked a few discussions in my house concerning the whole parallel univers versus space-time continuum... and picking holes in the scientific viability of the tale. Not bad when you consider it's about sending an injured military man's consciousness back in time to avert disaster - nothing unbelievable about that??? Right???
A good action movie which kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation the whole way through. If you can suspend belief a while you'll enjoy this one for what it is.
Why do people NOT want a Hollywood ending? If a movie finishes with a yucky outcome it gets a bad rap, if it tidies up the loose ends it gets a slating also. This one has a nice neat ending (paradox's notwithstanding) and makes for entertaining viewing.
original and extremely well done, thouroughly enjoyed along with my daughter, highly reccomend
For some reason I enjoyed this a LOT more than Inception, which left me a bit cold...I think this one has a lot more warmth and heart to it. There's more appeal to a military man trying to do good and save the day, than someone involved in industrial espionage (which was what Inception was kind of about wasn't it? I don't know as I gave up caring 30 minutes into that film) This has a good cast and a fun way to while away a cozy autumn afternoon - silly, enjoyable plot with likeable characters. Nice to see that real talent runs in the family, Mr Duncan Jones (alias Zowie Bowie son of David Bowie)....
No.I'm dumber for watching.
Peppy hollywood ending,mind numbing plot, droll repetition & Gyllenhall in the same tired role.
WOW, what an incredible mind blowing film. From start to finish i was on the edge of my seat.
Great action, great effects and very original story. It could have ended at a certain point which i would have been happy with, but they decided to go on for another 10 minutes or so which turned it into an Inception-esque type film. Still, i thought it was great and definitely a film i could sit through twice.
Despite one major plot hole for all to see; if you can get past it then this is a great little film with some interesting ideas and twists, that will keep you hooked all the way through.
High concept Hollywood thriller that has Jake Gyllenhaal going back in time to avert a terrorist bombing. Slick and shallow but holds your interest while you watch (but will soon be forgotten).
Great concept let down by the usual American ending where everything ends up perfect.
Why do they all have to end the same way?
Great movie, very intriging story line - enjoyed it right to the end!!
This was a blu ray movie - I don't have blu ray
so I would like a normal DVD sent of Source Code please
An interesting story, and reasonabily well executed. It's not as good as "Moon". Worth a watch to kill an evening.
Very very cleaver movie - thriller , sci fi , slightest touch of romance , mind bending script , great acting, very impressive.
I wasn't sure whether I would like this movie but thoroughly enjoyed it
Incredible, starts with a Hitch Cock feel and ends as a classic Sci-Fi with a confusing story that slowly makes sense towards the end.
Nice filmed, and Blu-Ray looks beyond fantastic on a projector. Story is not terrible, just not bad I guess.
at the start when i realised it was gonna keep looping back to the same time on tha train i thought,'oh no this is gonna be boring!' but it wasnt,this was an entertaining film with a great ending. I give this movie a 8 outta 10
Disappointing. Starts really well but just nose dives and ends up with a lame hollywood ending.
