July 29, 2011 by Grant Clauser

What if you could do it all again? And again, and again? In The Source Code, Captain Colter Stevens gets to jump back in time, and in other people’s bodies, in an effort to prevent, well, I’ll let you watch it and find out.

Home Theater Forum’s Timothy Ewanyshyn reviewed the Blu-ray release and had these thoughts:

Video

This is a better than average Blu-ray transfer. Film grain is present throughout with excellent fine detail. DNR is not excessive but shadow detail suffers in a few scenes where dark objects blend into each other. Colors tend to be muted rather than vibrant but deliberately so in keeping with the mood of the film.


Audio

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 tracks have great directional audio that draws one into the illusion of the film. Ambient train sounds, announcements, explosions, and every other sound complete the illusion of being there with Captain Stevens. Thankfully, the soundtrack rarely, if ever, interferes with audibility of dialogue.
