Source Code

Duncan Jones

Jake Gyllenhaal
Michelle Monaghan
Vera Farmiga
Jeffrey Wright
Running Time:
93 minutes


Duncan Jones, the son of David Bowie and director of 2009's critically acclaimed Moon, returns with his second feature length film Source Code. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal playing his usual charming hero self as Captain Colter Stevens, whom is connected to a program named the source code which allows a person to take over someone else's body in the last eight minutes of their life. Captain Stevens is connected to the program in order to find out who blew up a train outside of Chicago in order to stop a second attack. Cleverly written and brilliantly directed with obvious Hitchcockian influence, the film infact is such a thrilling ride that the sentimental ending that takes it a little off track wont bother you in the slightest. I'd be surprised if there is another film out this year as thrilling as this.
