Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up to find himself embedded in a secret government experiment that allows him to assume another man's identity for the last eight minutes of that person's life. Now using a computer program known as the Source Code, Stevens repeatedly experiences the final moments of a passenger's life while trying to find the terrorist behind the attack on a Chicago commuter train.
Why Is Source Code Rated PG-13?
Source Code is rated PG-13 for some violence including disturbing images, and for language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Source Code...
Violence: A bomb explodes on a busy commuter train—this scenario is repeated many times with the train exploding and careening off the track onto a busy street. A man punches, harasses and threatens passengers on a train; he also breaks into a locked compartment and steals a conductor’s pistol. A character falls from a train and sustains bloody injuries. Two characters are shot and shown on the ground surrounded by blood. A terrorist discusses plans to detonate a large bomb. A disembodied human torso and head with part of the brain exposed is seen in a medical environment.
Sexual Content: Two brief sexual remarks are heard. A man and woman kiss.
Language: A single sexual expletive is used, along with infrequent scatological and mild profanities.
Drugs/Alcohol: None noted.
