Source Code

If Inception and The Adjustment Bureau got married on Groundhog Day, I would imagine their child would look very much like Source Code, a sci-fi thriller that is as thoughtful as it is visceral. In Source Code, helicopter pilot Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up on a train where everyone seems to know him as a different person. Disoriented, Stevens observes the various people and events on the train for eight minutes, when the journey ends in disaster. What happens after that initial eight minutes involves twists, turns, quantum physics, true love and, most importantly, terrific filmmaking.

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay does its work unobtrusively with Source Code. There are some gross images that are edited, including some graphic images of people burning and a man with large wounds. ClearPlay also cuts a little fewer than 30 profanities and religious exclamations.

Will Code be the source of movie-viewing enjoyment?…

I love movies that mess with your mind or present alternate realities. But whereas Inception was technically more brilliant, Source Code is more emotionally engaging. Attribute a lot of that to Gyllenhaal’s sensitive performance, and a whiz–bang script that, at a spry 90 minutes, delivers the goods quickly and consistently.
