Déja Vu

Déja Vu

(2006)

If you think it's just a feeling, go back... and look again.

A time warping, cop-mystery, thriller, action, sci-fi extravaganza from director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Called in to recover evidence in the aftermath of a horrific explosion on a New Orleans ferry, Federal agent Doug Carlin (Washington) gets pulled away from the scene and taken to a top-secret government lab that uses a time-shifting surveillance device to help prevent crime.

This flick was a thrilling masterpiece from beginning till end.
Denzel & Paula pulled this supernatural thriller off with no questions asked. A spectacular twist to say the least.

By Danielle


This is along the lines of Butterfly Effect, Donnie Darko, Final Destination, Gothika etc as it's the same type of supernatural thriller, twisted reality, kind of story.

If you didn't like any of them, then I predict you'll also think this is boring...

But I loved Deja Vu ;)

Anything with Jerry Bruckheimer attached, you know is going to be dripping in sentiment and way over the top. Add in sterling Denzel's posturing & his utter lack of chemistry with love interest Paula Patton - pah! I suppose if you can swallow the time travel gimmick you might be able to get some enjoyment from this. I couldn't.

    Tony Scott's visuals are as stylishly empty as ever - the strange burnished effect of the time travelling sequences is especially lovely. But it's Denzel himself, ambling through the nonsense with just the right degree of twinkling insouciance, who keeps you watching. Good fun... Full Review

  • Nobody does vapid bollocks as enjoyably as Tony Scott, and while this isn't as inventive as "Man On Fire" or as compelling as "Crimson Tide," it's still the right side of dumb... Full Review

  • What is interesting is not how little sense Déj? Vu makes but how little that matters. If you want your films to add up logically, you're welcome to take your calculator somewhere else. But if you do, you will be missing out on some first-class genre fun... Full Review

  • It's a tribute to the skill involved in making "Deja vu" that it's actually possible to suspend disbelief for two solid hours... Full Review

  • A wrinkle in time gives texture and cinematic power to Tony Scott's exquisitely rendered "Deja Vu." The deliberate explosion of a New Orleans ferry carrying hundreds of U.S. sailors triggers what at first looks like the ultimate "CSI" episode care of producer Jerry Bruckheimer. But time-bending and tense-switching dimensions send "Deja Vu" to the level of an existential sci-fi thriller sure to elicit post-screening discussions and a fine holiday take... Full Review
