Déjà Vu

Critics Consensus

Tony Scott tries to combine action, science fiction, romance, and explosions into one movie, but the time travel conceit might be too preposterous and the action falls apart under scrutiny.

Movie Info

Déjà vu: that flash of memory when you meet someone new who you feel you've known all your life or when recognize a place although you've never been there before. What if these feelings are actually warnings sent from the past or clues to the future? It is déjà vu that guides ATF agent Doug Carlin through an investigation into a shattering crime. Called in to recover evidence after a cataclysmic bomb explosion on a New Orleans Ferry, Carlin discovers that what most people believe "is only in their heads" is something far more powerful--something which will lead him on a mind-bending race to save hundreds of innocent people.

  • Take away a couple of neatly staged action sequences and you're left with a callously measured slab of US jingoism that deals with the most horrific human tragedies in the most lunk-headed and insulting way possible.

  • It's Denzel himself, ambling through the nonsense with just the right degree of twinkling insouciance, who keeps you watching. Good fun.

  • Nobody looks cooler walking in slow motion through a crime scene while wearing sunglasses than Denzel Washington -- but even the great Denzel can't save Déjà Vu.

    Nov 27, 2006
  • The fleetingly satisfying Déjà Vu is ultimately a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Obviously the premise is extraordinarily silly, but it's just coherent and entertaining enough to be an enjoyable trifle. Washington's performance is a little too good for the movie.

    From director Tony Scott comes the exciting sci-fi thriller Déjà Vu. The story follows an ATF agent who's recruited to join a special task force that investigates a terrorist bombing using an experimental technology that can view 4 days into the past. Denzel Washington and Jim Caviezel lead the cast and deliver some very good performances. And Tony Scott's directing brings a lot of energy and excitement to the film. The writing is also quite impressive, particularly in how it explores time travel and issues of causality. Plus, the investigation itself is engaging and takes a number of interesting turns. The plot can be a little confusing at times, but overall Déjà Vu is an incredibly entertaining and action-packed film.
