Jake Gyllenhaal at 'Source Code' - "Meet The Filmmakers" on 1st April 2011 in New York City
"Source Code" *SPOILERS*: "In the end, Stevens finds out that he is dead. He functions with the help of machines. His brain is the only fully working organ left. Upset, he asks Dr. Rutleledge why he was preserved. The doctor says that many service men would prefer this over death. Stevens barks back asking if he had ever spent time in battle. Frustrated, the doctor says that such a question is immaterial".

“It’s not only about you… but about two million real world Americans.You’re a born hero, son. Saving people is what you do best”, he said.
"In the movie’s last few minutes, the camera pans into where the real Stevens lies. Source Code’s “Wolverine” is inside a semi-frozen, protective pod with half of his body cut off and his spine sticking out. With eyes closed, he goes on mumbling because he is in the middle of his Source Code-stimulated mission. Half of his skull has been removed and wires that connect him to the program are glowing around him". Source: thebottomline.as.ucsb.edu
