Cool idea for an action-science fiction thriller. It doesn't quite turn out that way but it's sufficiently entertaining. Denzel Washington is good as always. The film livens up once Jim Caviezel appears onscreen.

An interesting premise quickly becomes lost in Tony Scott's recent penchant for confusing directing and quick edits. The whole film unfolds like an music video and the characters and plot become lost in the fray. Competently acted, but poorly directed.

"Deja Vu" by Yojimbo

Denzel plays his usual mild mannered but earnest supercop investigating a terrorist attack on a ferry who becomes part of a government team who can look through a window onto 4 days in the past. In other words, Minority Report for the past instead of the future. It's one of those films that has that kind of mind bending time paradox plot that tends to be quite entertaining if you like trying to figure out if the script writer actually thought the idea through properly, using the prerequisite science mumbo jumbo to try and explain it all, but of course it's all nonsense so you have to either accept it or not. James Caviezel makes decent baddie and is at home in time travelling wish fulfilment territory starring as he did in Frequency a few years earlier and it's pretty much the usual …

Special Agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) is sent to investigate an explosion and discovers evidence that the attack was a bombing committed by a domestic terrorist. He meets-up with FBI Special Agent Paul Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer). Paul encourages Doug to join a team with Dr. Alexander Denny (Adam Goldberg), to investigate the events leading up to the explosion by using a new program called "Snow White", which enables them to look into the past (4 days, 6 hours, 3 minutes, 45 seconds, 14.5 nanoseconds) in detail. "Snow White" is actually a time window, and is also capable of sending inanimate objects into the past.

The pace of the film was smooth, soundtrack was nice and performances was sincere. Its premise was …

Tony Scott is one of the most interesting and complex directors in the film world today, as for Deja Vu, starring Denzel Washington and Val Kilmer, Tony takes the very simple process of changing time and space and makes it into something interesting, fun and just cool to watch. Deja Vu is a perfect example of a well made thriller with a hint of science fiction and mystery involved. Tony Scott has worked with Denzel before on Man on Fire, as both Denzel and Tony did a great job in whole creating an amazing movie.

In Algiers, New Orleans, after the explosion of a ferry transporting the sailors from the USS Nimitz and their families with 543 casualties, the lonely AFT agent Doug Carlin is assigned to investigate the terrorist attack. Without any lead, he is informed by Sheriff Reed …
