The time machine element of the movie gets hokey, but the visuals are intriguing and director Tony Scott wrenches suspense and tension from every scene.
| Original Score: B-
| Original Score: 4/5
Towards the end it gets a little tiresome and hokey. But the ride of the first two-thirds is well worth the journey.
Like its protagonist, you may find yourself wanting to see it more than once to appreciate how everything fits together - which earns Deja Vu the status of a classic, at least for the future.
Even for time travel enthusiasts who'll see story holes big enough to drive the ferry through, this can be a fun movie. Just don't think too hard about it.
| Original Score: 3/5
Certainly Tony Scott's best movie since Enemy of the State, and probably since the Tarantino-scripted True Romance.
| Original Score: B
Déjà Vu is one film that you'll be happy to revisit %u2014 whether it's to deconstruct the plot, pore over the science or just rerun as a great, engaging, adult adventure.
O filme apresenta um conceito tão interessante que, confesso, a idéia de ver novas aventuras centradas nesta premissa é algo que me agradaria.
| Original Score: 4/5
It may not make total sense, but Déjà vu is a highly enjoyable, superbly made thriller. Like me, you may want to see it again
None of the cast are going to win Oscars for this, but then they're not meant to. Instead, all involved expertly keep the plot moving forward towards a reasonably satisfying ending.
It's Denzel himself, ambling through the nonsense with just the right degree of twinkling insouciance, who keeps you watching. Good fun.
This slight variation on the time travel theme will engage you to the extent that you are able to forgive a script which repeatedly relies on cartoon physics to explain away every improbable plot development
| Original Score: 3/4
Scott manages to keep his rhythm high and the tension spiking, without causing migranes. Which is pretty much a first in a long time.
Basically entertaining, but it disappointingly drops off from a promising start of spiritually poignant, popular-science fun and whiz-bang action to an autopilot conclusion.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
An unforeseen mix of action, sci-fi, and even a hint of romance, Deja Vu's pleasures are in delivering what we don't see coming.
Although it's not being touted as a science-fiction movie, that's most certainly the genre in which "Deja Vu" belongs.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Déjà Vu isn't meant for heavy thinking; it's simply designed as entertainment. On that level, it's hard to fault.
It's delivered with an assured pacing and discovery where the story is still revealing itself after the first act.
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.
It's all carried off with a mad and silly energy, with muscular direction from Scott and cut together with frenetic fizz by editors Jason Hellman and Chris Lebenzon.
