WHAT A GREAT MOVIE! I was expecting something in the vein of Inception, but that ending gave me an entirely different perspective of the story. Jake Gyllenhaal has come a long way from Billy Crystal's son in City Slickers, and Homer Hickam in October Sky. He's grown to become one of this generation's most talented actors. I'm going to have to see Moon as soon as I can now.

This is the best movie I have seen in a couple of years, and it's the first hard sci-fi flick that has a heart. Here's my review:

Most science fiction has two problems: bad science and poor fiction. While Director Duncan Jones' film, Source Code, has very little to do with computer programming, the science of multiple universes via quantum mechanics is plausible and the fictional characters are easy to accept. I have often thought that "quantum jumping" is more a state of mind than a reality, but if you take that little leap of faith, you can easily see where they got the idea for this movie. Jake Gyllenhaal's character is fully believable as a soldier trapped in an artificial reality sent on a mission to save, literally, millions of lives from a threat that is far more realistic than what most action-adventure flicks have to offer. This is a first-rate movie that has a very satisfying ending. Some may criticize the repetitiveness of the plot. And, in fact, this type of story has been done before with similar "looping" plots such as Groundhog Day and certain pure sci-fi shows that involve singularities and time-travel paradoxes. Source Code is a must see, a great date movie, and food for thought.

Great movie, couldn't say it any better than Roeper did.

Duncan Jones has made another good movie. I just saw Source Code and your review was spot on Roeper. Source Code just shows that Inception has already influenced modern cinema, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it again.

Seems like a good follow up to Moon. Mmmmm, Richard, if you did see Moon, what are your brief thoughts on it? And when I say brief, I mean like a word or two, plus a letter grade.

I am so excited for this. Moon was one of the best films of 2009 and the past decade. Mr. Jones' follow up looks to follow in the same vein of smart, cerebral films for adults.

SOUNDS WORTH SEEING.
