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.

I felt cheated.

Rarely have [producer] Bruckheimer and [director] Scott been so upfront about insulting people's intelligence.

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.
November 24, 2006
The fleetingly satisfying Déjà Vu is ultimately a self-fulfilling prophecy.
November 23, 2006
Pretty dazzling, as action adventures go, even when it's wildly, almost defiantly, implausible.
November 23, 2006
The movie manages the singular feat of placing a science-fiction premise in a realistic setting, only to render that premise even more far-fetched than it would have seemed otherwise.
November 23, 2006
What gives the film its jolt of urgency is its New Orleans setting. Déjà Vu is the first major movie to be shot there since the city's devastation.
November 22, 2006
Déjà Vu isn't as sleek a genre pleasure as Enemy of the State, but it does have a freaky little trick up its sleeve.
November 22, 2006
Deja Vu attempts to explain the 'science' behind the movie's time-jumping, but in a drama that's contemporary and supposedly realistic, it comes off as cockamamie.
November 22, 2006
The movie's saved by an appealing star, a swift pace and a vivid setting.
November 22, 2006
[A] needlessly complicated and confusing thriller.
November 22, 2006
Déjà Vu is well worth seeing for its visual brio, particularly the boom-crash opera of the ferry explosion, and a chase scene in which Washington is dodging downtown traffic on two temporal planes simultaneously.
November 22, 2006
Washington and Scott manage to make Deja Vu perfectly watchable, no matter how many times we've seen this before.
November 22, 2006
Deja Vu starts out a lot like an expensive-looking episode of CSI before morphing into a solidly entertaining time-traveling romance.
November 22, 2006
Ed Wood, notorious as the worst film director in history, could have made the $80 million Jerry Bruckheimer time-travel thriller Déjà Vu for about $99.95 and it would have been just as believable.
November 22, 2006
The usually enjoyable time-travel paradoxes about how changing the past would affect the present coming off as more annoying intrusions than anything else.
November 22, 2006
Definition of redundant: A formulaic Hollywood pic that calls itself Déjà Vu.
