Storyline Heading
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he's ever known, he learns he's part of a government experiment called the "Source Code," a program that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last eight minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Sci-Fi Thriller - This is a science fiction thriller focused not so much on action than ideas, hence it should have more appeal to older viewers than the young adult action crowd. Fans of star Jake Gyllenhaal should be pleased as this is largely a showcase for him.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Source Code is more action-oriented and, as a result, has a stronger likelihood of mainstream acceptance.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good But Jones has the right spirit, Gyllenhaal and Monaghan are adept at playing their variations on the eight minutes, and here's a movie where you forgive the preposterous because it takes you to the perplexing.

USA Today Full Review
Good Though ads give it a time-travel focus, Source Code is a high-octane mind game best enjoyed by following a key character's advice: 'The Source Code is a gift. Don't squander it by thinking.'

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 116 moviegoers:
TEENS:FANTASTIC REVIEWS! Nearly everyone loved "Source Code," and the few that didn't, rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Two males loved it, two rated it above average and one was disappointed and rated it below average. The female reviews are better. Three loved it and one enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS:Both the male and female reviews are almost great. Approximately half loved it and another quarter, or more, enjoyed it very much, rating it above average. What keeps it from having great overall reviews is the relatively small number of "Good" reviews, which indicates just an average movie. Still, three out of four are going to enjoy "Source Code" very much.
