Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

If anything holds back science-fiction as a film genre, it's the tendency of big-studio thinking to use the genre as a disguise for other kinds of movie. Even classics of science-fiction cinema turn out to be Westerns, horror films or swashbuckling fantasy adventure dressed up with rayguns, spaceships and aliens. The theory goes that audiences don't want to think too much, and science-fiction is a literature of ideas — so do a cop shoot-out on an abandoned asteroid or a mismatched partner romcom with a neurotic single chick and a handsome robot rather than risk something head-scratching.

Christopher Nolan's gift for combining brainscrambling narratives with pulse-racing action and jaw-crashing visuals has rightly crowned him the king of high-concept think-busters. Yet if Source Code is anything to go by, the Dark Knight dude could face a challenge for that prestigious title (we just invented). His competition? One Duncan Jones, whose gripping follow-up to lunar puzzler Moon mirrors the seismic jump Nolan made between his monochrome 1998 indie Following and 2000's brilliant Memento and should likewise propel Jones into the Hollywood big-leagues.

In Duncan Jones's sci-fi thriller Source Code, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Captain Colter Stevens, a U.S. Army helicopter pilot who awakens after an enemy ambush to find himself sitting on a Chicago-bound commuter train, surrounded by strangers, with absolutely no idea how he got there. As he struggles to process his strange new milieu, he's pestered with small-talk by a perky fellow-passenger (Michelle Monaghan) whom he doesn't recognize, but who clearly seems to know him.

With his debut movie Moon, Duncan Jones made a mighty leap; now with this superb follow-up, he has hit the ground sprinting. Source Code is a terrifically exciting and hugely enjoyable sci-fi thriller, written by Ben Ripley. For pure entertainment, there's nothing around to touch it. Source Code is about conspiracies, altered minds and altered states, far-fetched in the most elegant and Hitchcockian way, and the sheer outrageousness of it all is muscular and streamlined.

Based on a hardcore sci-fi premise, but staged with a Hitchcockian lightness that injects romance and humour into a potentially bleak terrorist bomb scenario, this second film from the director of 'Moon' is an emotionally engaging time-travel puzzle piece. It may not be 'Un film de Duncan Jones', but it is an efficient, entertaining thriller that features several striking signature sequences and some smart conceptual ideas. Jake Gyllenhaal is edgy and engaging as confused Blackhawk helicopter pilot Captain Colter Stevens.

Duncan Jones is the man behind this thing and he's a name worth getting to know. He made the mind-scratching space odyssey Moon with Sam Rockwell—a movie that needs to be in your Netflix queue--and this, his second feature (one featuring a significantly bigger budget), is fast, cool, exciting and smart in ways you won't expect. The mechanics are very Inceptiony and Avatarish and on trend, with semi-confusing explanations/non-explanations for how Gyllenhaal can be manipulating future reality by retreating into the past in his mind.

Movie Review from

The clever, melancholy Moon proved there was more to Duncan (Zowie Bowie) Jones than just a very famous dad. But is there more to him than Moon? He takes a Hollywood gig on the twistily daft sci-fi thriller Source Code, which dabbles in a not dissimilar existential crisis. Jones's heroes are trapped in isolation booths questioning the nature of their own reality, but this one feels more like a makeshift booby-hatch, decked out with narrative emergency exits everywhere you look.
