The first half of "Source Code" definitely comes off as an episode of the Twilight Zone or the Outer Limits, and that's not a good thing because it had me leaning on the FF button more than I wanted. The overall premise is intriguing but anytime the story messes around with time travel and alternate realities you're going to piss off alot of the intelligensia. On the other hand alot of the tween/teen sets' minds will be blown for the first time so there's some benefit to that I suppose. It's not a waste to watch, just don't spend alot to rent it though.

Source Code was a nice surprise. The story is different and original from the typical 3D superaction scifi and the story flows well in spite (or because of) the constant replays of the last 8 minutes of a passenger train. Jake Gyllenhaal is the best thing about this movie -- he's so good an actor that he makes us care about the people he's interacting with, though most are forgettable. The actor playing the scientist seemed to be playing the part via Skype -- not very solid acting, in my opinion. I do recommend this film, however, because it's interesting and showcases Gyllenhaal in a mode more suited to his strength and good looks.

If the same guy who makes the infomercials for movies were the actual person who directs-produces these movies, then movies would be great! I give the movie 3stars. I would give it less but the written concept is very good, interesting while the main actors are great with the exception of the male-inventor-director with the crutch. He was not very good in this film at all and it lowered the whole movie badly. I’m sure he is a fine actor but this role was not for him. The female main-actor was quite decent and the male-main character did very well. My favorite part is where he screams about delivering a pizza to the inventor-director to mess with his time schemes. Thank you for allowing me to comment, MikeAcoustic

An excellent sci-fi movie by a really talented director on the rise (he directed "Moon", of the most underrated movies of the year) and here takes a very clever idea, a very good cast and does something a number of directors have failed to do over the last few years. He makes that basic story better, without the use of excessive and uninvolving special effects, without a dumb script and uninteresting characters. Instead what we get is a clever movie with a heart which draws you in to the story. We learn what is going on at the same time as Guylenhaal's character, at the same time learning about him (so that we actually care what happens to him) and feeling him develop an emotional attachment to the girl played by Monaghan, so that his choices in the movie make sense, which is rare in these types of movie. Along with "Limitless", the best sci-fi movie of the eyar.
