Introduction: Source Code 2011 is a mystery/sci-fi movie. The source code is compared to the source code of computer programs. It shows how hackers break into computers and steal sensitive data by using a smartphone app, but then also why it is a bad idea to use this app.
The story starts like any movie about two black hats and a target with the word “hackers” in the title. But of course, what happens next is unexpected: Turns out trashed military aircraft don’t take down that wall! One of them crashes and kills Mr. Zalinsky!
Meaning of the Movie:
Source Code tells us much about hacking – for example, how easy it is to hack a computer. The main character is an air traffic control operator and he gives us some insights into computers, especially how simple it can be to consume so much data by forwarding payloads over the network, as well as what makes effective hacking different from other social crimes such as fraud.
Source Code also shows that hacking rumors are probably not true at all! Most of the “hackers” claim they work for military agencies or they have done many jobs for the US Army. The truth is that military agencies have as much of a problem with hackers and cracking passwords, as every other company in America – they just aren’t interested in security matters.
This movie does not provide any real solutions to dealing with computer viruses or collecting information about users using computers – which were two good points during the discussion I was involved in. It seems like there simply isn’t enough interest from Hollywood either to create “smart” movies about computer security. Enjoy!
First and foremost, Source Code is a movie about hackers and their methods of infiltrating systems to steal sensitive data. It is also a warning for the public about the dangers of using smartphone apps to access personal information.
Secondly, it is about the hacker’s way of thinking and their attitude toward security matters. It shows us how hackers perceive security in terms of getting more results and not giving a shit about the full potential effects.
This mentality is often dangerous for society and leads to many hacker crimes – including some acts of terrorism (or even terrorist incidents). If this movie can cause people to think twice when they use an app on their smartphone, it would be worth quite a lot as Hollywood movies typically have very little effect on events in real life.
Source Code is about a hacker who breaks into military computers and steals sensitive data. It is a bad idea to use an app to do this because the app can be hacked, which could lead to the theft of confidential information. In this movie, the motive behind being a hacker is to escape reality and that sounds like a good reason not to simulate hacking in my class.
However, there will usually be situations where students need some help on how they can deal with problems such as getting back into their home computer after their login was abused by someone else. Source Code will release on Blu-Ray on Dec 15, 2011, in the US at Amazon .com (“Exclusive Limited Edition” version). The other versions will only be available at Best Buy.
Coverty, Patrick. Source Code: Ice and Fire – Charles Roselli Returns to the Computer Caper That Killed Him! Source Code is a movie about computer hacking. It tells the story of someone who becomes involved in this lifestyle and the dangers that come with it. It follows the life of Colter Stevens who works as an air traffic control operator in US Air Traffic Control – first-person perspective.
Source Code is a good movie to watch. It has lots of suspense, strong emotions, and interesting characters that could easily be recognized by philosophy students studying ethics with computer technology… How should they know? 🙂 Through Source Code, we learn much about hacking from what happens at work (stealing user’s passwords) to what happens at home (giving away positive images of hacking to the internet by lying about your identity).
Ending of This Movie:
Although the ending of Source Code is not a definite conclusion, it leaves room for further sequels and other movies about computer hacking. I supposed Source Code was a boundless movie. I didn’t know much about computer hacking before watching it, but now I’m interested in the subject. The suspense and excitement kept me engaged from beginning to end, and the ending left me wanting more.
Source Code is an intense film that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The story follows a hacker as he becomes involved with dangerous cyber-crime activities and is hunted by both the FBI and a cyber-terrorist. It is well worth watching, with some incredibly powerful scenes that linger in your mind forever after you have seen it.
I was delighted to come across Source Code while searching for other great things to watch on Netflix. I am not a huge movie watcher so this was exactly what I needed: something new, interesting, and unforgettable! It is filled with action, suspense and surprises. And it made bring movies about hacking and computer technology to the general public, for free.
This film is all about the hacking of computers and personal data such as credit cards or other means of identification (such as online passwords). Thus a hacker gets involved with cyber terrorism! It may sound scary but it’s not too bad actually, if we recall what movies are like – it will be fine. In the last scene, the FBI agent (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) is finally able to track down the hacker and arrest him. So, Source Code may have an unresolved ending but it’s still a very good movie – watch it!
The FBI agent is about to close in on the hacker when all of a sudden he disappears – as if teleported to some other place. This last scene leaves us with many questions unanswered; about hacking, computer security, and especially about what happens next for our hero. I liked that this film focuses on the mind of a genius programmer and not so much about reading in books, like in “Virus” or other movies from the same series.
Source Code is an incredible movie with all its exciting twists and turns (I really can’t mention a single bad thing to recommend it). It’s not your typical Hollywood blockbuster but rather holds more suspense than what we are used to seeing while taking our audience.
Important Events of the Movie:
- The hacker’s mind is taken to a different place, leaving the FBI agent with many questions unanswered
- The film focuses more on the mind of a genius programmer rather than reading in books
- The discovery that a computer hacker has infiltrated a Pentagon site and is threatening to release secret information
- A race against time as the protagonist, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, works with the FBI to track down the hacker before he can release classified information

The Media Flair rating of Source Code: 9 out of 10 – a movie not just worth your time but also one of the best films here on IMDb. It was top-rated among all the scales. You should watch this film obviously for a good experience.
A note to all parents out there: this film has some important scenes (mostly at the end) where you can see what is happening inside the main character’s head, before and after he gets transported into an alternate reality. I also recommend this film for children and teenagers since there are no graphic scenes or too much violence, nothing to be worried about!
