Source Code (UHD Blu-ray) review

Blu-ray Software Review Forum - www.hometheaterequipment.com
Plot

When soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man he discovers he's part of an experimental government program called the "Source Code" that enables him to cross over into another man's identify in the last eight minutes of his life. Armed with the task of identifying the bomber of a Chicago-bound commuter train, Colter must re-live the incident over and over until he can solve the mystery and prevent an even deadlier second terrorist attack.

My Thoughts

It?s hard to believe that it?s been 7 years since I last saw this?it seems like it was yesterday! Anyway, I really liked it the first time through and it?s a lot of fun the second time as well. It?s a nonstop action film from start to finish and Gyllenhaal does a great job playing the troubled hero.

The video quality has an uptick in detail over the Blu-ray and maybe the Dolby Vision grading had something to do with the studio paying extra attention to things. I really liked the DTS-HD MA audio track from the original release, but the Dolby Atmos upgrade makes good use of the overhead speakers and there is plenty of LFE, which is always a crowd pleaser.

Video 8.5/10 (MVC)

Audio 9.5/10 (Dolby Atmos)

Special Features:

- Audio commentary with director Duncan Jones, writer Ben Ripley and actor Jake Gyllenhaal

- ?5 Crazy Details You Might Have Missed? Featurette

- Blu-ray + DVD + UV Digital Copy

Conclusion

If you didn?t catch this one on its first go around on home video, definitely check it out in 4K if you get a chance. The video quality is improved, and the Dolby Atmos track is worth the price of admission. Highly recommended.
