  • Working from a tight script by Ben Ripley, Jones creates scary, hairy, high-octane tension. Disbelief? Suspended, until the logic lapses kick in later. It's a small price to pay for a ride that starts at wild and accelerates from there. show more

  • Director Duncan Jones achieves a strange and winning amalgam, a gripping action film that also works as poetry. show more

  • A high-octane mind game best enjoyed by following a key character's advice: "The Source Code is a gift. Don't squander it by thinking." show more

    This is by far the worst most unbelievable peice of fiction I have ever seen. If one were to make a film with an unorthodox theroy for a plot, It must have at least a small dose of convincibility to be plausable. This movie was so far fetched and ridiculous that even with better acting it would still be and awful movie. To anyone ********* this review \&*********** the little mermaid instead\&********* more belieavable. Speacial thanks to Director(s): \"Duncan Jones\" for stealing 2 hours of my life.
