Possible blind buy for me. Trailer looked cool and it looked like a movie I could get into. Will wait for review.

Pretty good. Not as amazing as "Moon" and the ending was almost too Hollywood but he was able to pull it together somewhat nicely.

I'll probably buy.

Wait a second - Duncan "Moon" Jones directed this? Oh shit, now I have to see it. I failed to pay attention to any of the trailers and press from around the time of the theatrical release. The Gyllenhaal factor was keeping me away.

Haha..I kind of like Gyllenhaal. But yeah, I don't think any fan of Moon would be disappointed.

I loved Source Code. It's solid science fiction made digestible for a mainstream audience. While the ending is very much a "Hollywood ending," it still has that sci-fi element to it that leaves you thinking about it to make up your own conclusion.

I really wanted to see this in theaters but my wife would have no part of it. She even really likes Jake Gyllenhaal, but she kept saying that it looked like - and I quote - "'Groundhog Day' with things blowing up." Day one blind buy for me ....

Honestly... she's right.

But don't let that deter you, it's definitely a great movie. I would probably agree that so far it's my favorite of the year, but I admittedly haven't seen too much yet. The performances are really good and it is solid sci-fi. I'll agree with the post saying the ending is a bit too hollywood though, it's too sentimental but every now and then that is a good thing, ymmv.
