NON SPOILER SUMMARY

Colter Stevens wakes up on a commuter train heading into Chicago. He is very disoriented and confused about how he got there, and how the woman sitting across from him seems to know him. After looking in the mirror, he realizes he is not in his own body. 8 minutes later, the train blows up. Colter wakes up in his own body, and discovers he is part of a military experiment that allows him to enter the last 8 minutes of someone else’s life. His mission is to find the bomb, and the bomber, in order to prevent a larger pending attack on Chicago. So, he relives those 8 minutes over and over, trying to find clues to complete his mission.

CIN’S REVIEW

I entered the theater really excited to see Source Code, and then about 20 minutes in, I was wondering if I’d make it through. Really? We’re going to watch the same 8 minutes over and over again? What was I thinking? However, that moment quickly passed. There were a few twists, revelations, and new elements introduced that got me interested again, and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the movie.
