Just a "homage" to Quantum Leap then?

I'll still try it out though.

It's certainly a different kettle of sci-fi to Moon, but still an enjoyable watch.

Review here.

I'm looking forward to seeing it - but I felt the trailer gave away too much

Good to see so much love for Moon in here. It was clear from watching that film that Duncan Jones knows his stuff and he made little concession to dumbing down or mass market appeal. Great score from Clint Mansell too. I'll be checking out source code for sure.

Saw it yesterday, really liked it 8/10. The more I think about it the more I liked it.

As an aside, does anyone else now see Chicago and think "ah it's daytime Gotham City"?

@Stansfield, I was on a double decker train in Germany, they're seriously cool.

I'm guessing Bridges and Tunnels...would be a factor, why we don't have'em over here {UK}...

Most of Europe, the USA, Japan, most of the developed world in fact, has significantly upgraded their Rail network since the 1960s.

We in the UK have let ours slowly rot.

I saw this on Friday just before I came back from Florida and I thought it was fairly good and had a pretty original idea behind it, although some of it was kinda confusing. Worth seeing if you liked Inception and other similar films though.

I'm not going to give away any plot spoilers (apart from in tags below) but even what I'm about to say next might be considered a bit spoilerish.

I loved it, but felt the last minute ruined it somewhat. There were two way better places to end it just a bit earlier, but they had to try and go for the slightly happier ending.

Spoiler


Great film - but for me it finished five minutes before the credits.

It was a brilliant film, but it could have been so much better. Some parts of it just didn't need to be in the film, infact it was like watching the uncut version which could have done with about 10 minutes left on the cutting room floor.

Overall I will give it 7/10

I really enjoyed it, not as much as Moon, but i never really expected to. Gyllenhaal was great. Can't wait to see what Duncan Jones cooks up for us next.

While the ending did seem a bit too "schmaltzy", i wouldn't say it ruined the film or anything. Overall i'd give it about a 9/10.

KidMoe, I wasn't trying to imply that the ending didn't make sense. I just would have preferred for that element not to have been introduced at all. Spoilers follow!

Actually, having re-read your post, there are elements I disagree with. Throughout the film, there was no evidence of:

You know, the more I think about it, the more annoyed I get with the ending. Those last few minutes made it a very messy ending with lots of unanswered questions, most of which shouldn't be important anyway.
