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
Captain Goodwin's uniform is incorrect. Blue name tags are not worn on the Air Force service coat. (Blue name tags are only for the shirt, whereas silver name tags go on the service coat). Also, her U.S. insignias are not properly placed on the lapel. See more »
First of us i have to say this is a brilliant stuff! Hollywood people have mastered the art of concept based movies. This one is a great testimony to their skills. This is easily the best movie of 2011 so far and a real thriller after inception.
The protagonist is the captain who is killed in a mission in Afghanistan but his body is recovered and it is used to accomplish a mission through the help of program loop called source code.
Some concepts used are programming, afterlife, quantum physics, psychology. But all are brilliantly combined to give a surreal experience. It is a fast paced flick so there is no chance of getting bored at any stage. This is a good one. Definitely worth of your time!
