Movie: Source Code

Source Code reminds me of Vantage Point,Time Cop:The Berlin Decision.
Story:
    A dead helicopter pilot's [Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal)] mind is used to send in to past. Where he has 8mins to check for the bomb's location and to find the bomber. He has to locate the bomber because bomber has the plan to detonate another nuclear bomb in the city. Each time, Pilot is sent back to past, he faces the same things repeating. Also, he finds that he cannot save anybody from the blast.

    Stevens is isolated inside a chamber, where Air Force Capt. Colleen Goodwin (Vera Farmiga) explains to Stevens through a computer screen that he is inside the Source Code, a program that allows him to take over someone's body in his or her last eight minutes of life. The Source Code's creator, Dr. Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright), tell him that the Source Code is not a simulation, but a visit into the past in the form of an alternative reality. He's told that he cannot truly alter the past to save any of the passengers, but that he must gather intel that can be used to alter the future and prevent a future attack.

          Stevens is sent back several more times. The second time he locates the bomb in the ventilation shaft above the bathroom. Each time he learns more, both about the terrorist attack and his real life personal situation, even though Rutledge and Goodwin constantly direct him to focus on finding the bomber. Stevens resolves to complete his mission, now with the added personal goal of saving Christina and the people on the train if at all possible.

            He eventually discovers that the bomber is an American extremist named Derek Frost (Michael Arden). Stevens pursues Frost to a white van where the radioactive bomb is hidden. Stevens is eventually shot dead in the confrontation, but still able to gather enough information about Frost to inform Rutledge and Goodwin after he awakes from the source code. Authorities are able to apprehend Frost and save Chicago before the second bomb is detonated.

       With the mission accomplished, Rutledge(Source Code's creator) orders Stevens' memory to be erased and stored for reuse in further projects. But Stevens persuades Goodwin to send him in one more time and give him one last chance to save the people from the first train disaster. Goodwin agrees that he deserves to be allowed to die in peace afterwards instead of being held alive as a military artifact.

          With the information he has uncovered from previous trips into the Source Code, Stevens is able to defuse the bomb and capture Frost before he can destroy the train. Frost is arrested by the police and the people on the train are saved. Stevens and Christina kiss in the last seconds before the plug is to be pulled at the eight-minute mark. In that instant, Goodwin turns off his life support per his request, but to Stevens' surprise, his mind remains in Sean Fentress' body. He was able to safely leave the train with Christina and the rest of the passengers. 
          Now in the alternate universe, where the bomb was defused, the alternate version of Goodwin receives an email from Stevens explaining what has happened and how the Source Code works by connecting (or creating) alternate realities. The alternate version of Goodwin gets the letter before she is even aware of the operation or of the bomb that will explode on the train later that day. Stevens asks her to listen to him and consider his requests once her communication begins with the Captain Colter Stevens inside the chamber she soon will find out about.
