b. Time travel
c. Ground Hog Day

Easily the best movie so far this year, which is not yet saying much, Source Code is the story of a supposedly dead soldier who is sent back in time to inhabit a man’s DNA right before a terrorist attack. The story becomes Inception meets Ground Hog Day as he must go back over and over to learn who the terrorist is and then prevent the destruction. It’s the bland Jake Gyllenhaal in the Bill Murray role here.

The best thing about this movie is the pace. There’s no dawdling in needless detail. The action and the revelations come quickly and there’s no wasted action. If, like me, your patience with two and a half hour blockbusters has worn thin, this is the movie for you. It’s wham, bam, boom, then do it again, with steroids.

Cool stuff.
