    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    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

    David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer

    Gyllenhaal is particularly unsuited to this role, his saucer eyes flashing from calm to crazed. show more

    The first film in a while to have a decent heart while quickening your pulse. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The movie boils down to one character, acting under enormous pressures of space and time, racing to solve a mystery. In this case, that may be good enough. show more

    Somewhere under all that bloat is the greatest short subject of all time. show more

    Scott Tobias NPR

    Based on its thrillingly fractured first half - not to mention "Moon" in its entirety - Jones seems much smarter than he allows the film to be in the end. It wriggles out of its own intriguing puzzle. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    An ingenious thriller that comes billed as science fiction, although its science is preposterous. show more

    Source Code is a contraption, no doubt. But it works. 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.

    Wasn\'t this a takeoff from a TV show with a similar theme? It was OK until the head of the program called for the MP\'s. The Canadian production must not have had a military advisor. There haven\'t been MP\'s (especially those with MP armbands) in the USAF since Jan 1948, soon after the USAF separated from the Army in 1947.

    Very good movie with very likable actors - but ending not credible - leaves impossible situation.
