I’m pretty anxious to see this film as it’s from director Duncan Jones who gave us some real quality work with his last film Moon–an interesting sci-fi drama. This time around the premise is interesting enough and I’ve even heard it described as a mashup between Groundhog Day and Speed. I’m hoping that the story focuses more on the perils of changing the future rather than the tech of time traveling. If time traveling is just a vehicle to tell the story, then we should be in for a fun ride.
If you haven’t heard about Source Code, here is the plot synopsis:
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) 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.
Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) from a screenplay by Ben Ripley (Species III). It stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Brothers, Brokeback Mountain), Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Gone Baby Gone), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed) and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Syriana).
And here’s a quick trailer to give you a better idea of what we’re in for:
