A helicopter pilot (Gyllenhaal) recruited for a top-secret military operation finds himself on a startlingly different kind of mission in Source Code, a smart, fast-paced action thriller that challenges our assumptions about time and space. Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is directed by Duncan Jones (Moon).

Like the movie Ground Day, a person re-living in a continuously the same time loop every day.
A the physically injured soldier's conscious is injected in the digitally recorded time loop (source code) where a bomber was successful in killing a train-load of people. His orders is to determine who the bomber was, and he ordered to prevent the bomb from going off. It is a dramatic and suspenseful theme to this movie compared to Ground Day. The solders will re-live the time loop over many times over until he changes the outcome of the event by prevent the bomb from going off thus change the future.
Definitely a Keeper in my DVD library.
Highly recommended. I'm a cinema buff.
Everything moves so fast and the hero dies in many different ways before he finally gets everything right in his limited time that your head spins with so much information going by so fast, but it is consistent with the hero's confusion as to what is happening to him and makes it easy to be sympathetic to his concerns. The one concern that I had was that the movie stretched my credibility too far when it broke its own premise of the alternate reality being created in the hero's brain continuing when his physical brain died. At least they carried forward the "real" world into the alternate reality and it was a very satisfying ending. I'll have to watch it again and see what I missed from the first time I saw it.
In both Moon and Source Code the protagonists encounter questions of identity and confusion about whether they are alive or dead (or someone else). The lead actors receive orders from their superiors that are often relayed to them by women, who are always sure of their authority, while the men often end up fighting each other. Like Kafka novels, where the main characters often turn into insects, the Duncan Jones characters often don't know who or where they are.
