Jake Gyllenhaal plays Colter Steven in "Source Code" (2011)
"So begins Source Code, a stunning work of modern science fiction from hyper-talented British filmmaker Duncan Jones.
While the science underpinning Source Code is wonky at best, the fiction in play is grippingly solid throughout.
Better still, courtesy of a cracking screenplay by Ben Ripley, the sparse and uncluttered direction of Duncan Jones teases a soulfulness from Colter's tale that is genuinely moving.
In its best stretches, Source Code achieves both the power and the poignancy that ever so slightly eluded last year's brain-addling hit Inception.
As Colter, Gyllenhaal deploys a commanding, yet believable presence that sells the riskier conceptual elements of the tale with no questions asked". Source: www.heraldsun.com.au
