Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) an American Army helicopter pilot whose last memory is flying in Afghanistan, and somehow wakes up on a Chicago commuter train in another man’s body. Eight minutes later the train explodes and he finds himself in some kind of metal pod. He then receives questions and orders from Goodwin (Vera Farmiga) a solider that’s communicating to him over a monitor in real time. Steven’s is confused about what’s happening and all Goodwin only wants to know about what he saw. He doesn’t understand why he must continue on with the mission until Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright), the scientist in charge tells him that he’s part of a project that can put someone in another person's consciousness during the last eight minutes of their life. Once Steven’s understands that he can’t change the past, he’s finally ready to help find the bomber.
What if your conscious wakes up but the rest of you doesn’t? Talk about having the worse inner body experience ever! There’s nothing like being trapped in your head, and at the same time still being able to communicate with the outside world in real time. “Source Code” is a thriller mystery that filled with some action and starts immediately. The concept is pretty interesting and even though the eight minutes don’t change, the situation does every time he goes back in. Jake Gyllenhaal really helps to make this movie and without him the end result may not have been the same. “Source Code” was cool however I don’t think it’s worth seeing in theaters. I would have much rather watched it from the comfort of my living room. You’ll get a bigger bang for your buck if you just wait to rent it on Blu-ray or DVD.
