Initial reservations prove entertainingly incorrect Source Code Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright, Michael Arden. Written by Ben Ripley, directed by Duncan Jones. 93 minutes, rated M (offensive language). Reviewed by Matt Dallas. Waiting on a train: Jake Gyllenhaal gets stuck on repeat in the thrilling, thoughtful and well-humoured Source Code. Parallel realities seem to be fertile turf for Jake Gyllenhaal. He entered cult movie lore talking to a giant bunny rab- bit about the space-time con- tinuum in Donnie Darko, and is likely to do so again by leap- ing into the recent past to catch a terrorist in Duncan Jones' highly entertaining Source Code. I must confess that when I saw the trailer, I thought the concept was naff: through some technological do-dacky, a soldier is repeatedly sent back in time to be aboard a train for the eight minutes before it explodes, in the hope he will uncover the terrorist at work. I expected an experience akin to that annoying phenomenon when you play a video game and are forced to restart a mission from the beginning every time you screw up. Oh boy, was I wide of the mark. The ambitions of Jones and his picture are far more inven- tive, exciting and, somewhat surprisingly, humorous than simply Groundhog Day with guns in place of Bill Murray's genius. At the heart of the appeal is Gyllenhaal's beleaguered Col- ter Stevens, a military chop- per pilot who was supposed to be in Afghanistan. Like Cary Grant in North By Northwest, he finds himself in the middle ofa mission, being manipulated left, right and centre. With no memory of how he got there, Colter is locked inside a capsule from where his consciousness is zapped into another man's body aboard a Chicago-bound train, eight minutes before it explodes, killing everybody aboard. Colter is being sent into the source code'', which his handler Lieutenant Goodwin (Vera Farmiga) and mad inventor Dr Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright, having a ball) are reluctant to elaborate on. For the sake of saving column centimetres, let's just say it involves a breakthrough in quantum physics, and is more about accessing memor- ies and new realities than time travel. Goodwin and Rutledge are desperate for information to help identify the terrorist, as another attack is imminent, and repeatedly send Colter back on to the train, despite his fraying mental state. Thankfully for us, Colter is just as interested in sweet- talking the lady sitting opposite him (Michelle Monaghan) and resolving his own memory lapses, as he is in fingering the bomber. Despite the same starting point and comprising the same eight-minute slice of time, these quantum leaps'' play out in multiple ways as Colter exercises trial, error and misadventure. At each debriefing with Goodwin and Rutledge, Colter and the viewers are tantalisingly given pieces of the larger puzzle. From the lively retro score to the Hitchcockian tones, Source Code is every bit an old-fashioned spy caper as it is a high-concept sci-fi mind- mixer -- The Matrix meets Minority Report isn't far off, but still sells it short. Whereas some movies of this nature become preoccu- pied with convoluted plotting and socio-political subtext, Jones ensures that the more basic human themes -- love, family, hope -- remain para- mount. What he has achieved is an intelligent, inventive and thoughtful crowd-pleaser.
