Tuesday DVD Forecast: July 26, 2011: ‘Source Code’
The only movie that is being released today is ‘Source Code’ starring Oscar Nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) and Michelle Monaghan. Directer Duncan Jones proved that his critically acclaimed ‘Moon’ (90% on Rotten Tomatoes) was not a fluke, earning good marks for his second feature film. ‘Source Code’ scored a 91% on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer and a 74 on Metacritic. Inexperience proved to be genius with writer Ben Ripley, starting his feature film career off with a bang in ‘Source Code’.
My favorite description of ‘Source Code’ came from Jim Schembri (The Age), describing the film as “Groundhog Day meets Inception.” The Sci-Fi thriller earned $123.3 million worldwide in the box office on a $32 million budget.
Here is the summary of ‘Source Code’ via Summit Entertainment:
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code,” a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.
