Army Captain Colter Stevens finds himself working on a special program where his consciousness can be inserted into another human being. The only catch is can only be there for 8 minutes at any given time. That morning, a bomb exploded on a commuter train just outside Chicago. He occupies the body of teacher going to work on that train and is confused as to what he is doing or why he is there as his last memory is of flying his helicopter on a combat mission in Afghanistan. Those in charge of the program explain to him that there is a bomb on the train, and that he must locate it. More importantly, he must identify the bomber as another bombing is expected later that day. He is also told however that he cannot change the past and can only gather information. As he develops a liking for his traveling companion Christina, he sets out to test that theory.Written by
Because the owners of the actual commuter station they planned to film in changed their terms at the last minute, a fake station had to be built in a car park. That meant the white van couldn't be prepared in time. The contents had to be simulated using CGI. See more »

English Director Duncan Jones brings to the audience a nail biting thriller as well as beautifully directed movie.Source Code revolves around the concept of creating a parallel universe through time travel.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays the character of Captain Colter Stevens a pilot in U.S Army .Colter wakes up in a train with a woman Cristina(Michelle Monaghan) in front of her whom he has never met before .The last thing he remembers is fighting a battle in Afganisthan.This completely confuses Colter who later discovers that everything about him as changed.The train he was on get's blasted and Colter wakes up again in a capsule this time a woman name Goodwin beautifully played by Vera Farmiga talking to him and trying some memory regain techniques .Colter later learns that she is a member of some secret organization that has built a program known has source code that can connect to anyone's brain and access some-part of their memory .This enables them time reassignment which can create parallel reality.
The chief-head of the organization Dr. Rutledge played by Jeffrey Wright is very stubborn and mean and wants to accomplish mission at any cost.
The movie can make viewer fall in love with each character .Cinematography is beyond satisfaction .Actor Jake Gyllenhaal takes the character to a different level .The concept of the movie at a time will seem abrupt which is completely acceptable in a sci-fi movie .The movie will keep it's audience on their toes .This master piece was nominated for 8 awards and won the COFCA award for best original screenplay in 2011.
