The setting is New Orleans and the place there is the Algiers Ferry dock.The ferry is loaded with armed forces personnel out in celebration and shortly after it leaves the dock,there is a huge explosion,condemning over 500 souls to their doom.Enter agent Carlin who is there investigating the carnage.He is an agent who is extremely on the ball and attention to detail is his forté.
During his probing a woman's body is found washed up on a nearby shore.It is first assumed it is just another body from the explosion,but its`placement on shore in conjunction to the boats demise is impossible as it would have to have floated there against the tide.Not only that but the ends of the fingers of one hand have been removed.Carlin attends the autopsy to find out the body was evidently placed there before the explosion and had nothing to do with the ferry blast;or did it?
Enter FBI man Pryzwarra who entreats Carlin to join in their investigation.He takes Carlin to some office where a group of folks are looking at seemingly real time four day old footage of the ferry,from any angle they choose and with sound.He is first told this is just new satellite techno stuff,but the explanation doesn't sit well with him.He goes along only so far until they are looking at the woman whose body was found,and who they have since identified,but is now alive,being,supposedly,four days before.The woman comments that she thinks she's being watched.Read more ›
And his ongoing frustration that no matter what he does, his efforts to change the past and avoid the tragedy seem fruitless, the same things (like his partner being killed) still seem to happen but in different ways. This of course leaves the question of whether he can somehow save the girl wide open. Plus once he does succeed in going back in time, he gradually realizes that some of the things he's observed from "now" he actually caused himself "then".
This is not primarily an action flick, though there are some exciting scenes ... it's more of a thoughtfully gripping suspense tale. Definitely one to see at least once ... and probably again just to catch the things you missed that I referred to in the last sentence of the previous paragraph.
During his investigation he stumbles upon the body of a murdered girl. He knows she is somehow connected to the bombing. With the help of some very high-tech, Einstein inspired, government equipment, he is able to watch the last four days of her life.
As he watches her last moments, he cannot stop himself from falling in love with her and becomes determined to recover her life. Carlin needs to travel back in time, save the girl and stop the terrorist, but has to be quick for the clock is ticking....
A Tony Scott/Denzel Washington collaboration is always worth watching as they usually deliver a movie with an intricate plot, thrilling action sequences, and characters that are driven by their emotions. These are rare qualities in action movies to-day. Déjà vu is no exception for it has all these qualities and more. The supporting cast is fantastic, a sublime Adam Goldberg makes a great super intelligent and witty side kick to Washington and Jim Caviezel is unnerving as the psychopath who believes his actions are for a greater good. Be warned; if you are a Val Kilmer fan, you will be a little bit disappointed as he seems to be a bystander in most events and not a participant. I have the impression that most of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.
Like all time travel stories it will leave you with questions e.g. if this event did not take place how come Carlin knew to go back and stop it happening. Unfortunately as with all time travel tales I don't think this can be avoided but don't get too hung up about it; just let it wash over you and enjoy the film. The ending is slightly weak and leans towards the saccharin but you can forgive Déjà Vu these few flaws. This is the thinking person's action movie and after you have watched it you will probably be compelled to watch it all over again.
We may have time travel, time warp movies before but "Déjà Vu" is special in that the production made the city of New Orleans, its people and landscapes very much 'a character in the film. The performances from the leads were solid all around. Denzel is of course... well he's Denzel. When he rants and raves on the big screen he commands the attention of the other characters as well as the audience. Val Kilmer pulls his own weight, literally, putting on the pounds to amply play a supporting role. His performance is pretty straightforward, but the performance I was both impressed and disappointed was Jim Caviezel's. As much as I was wowed by his character I was so intrigued by him that it made me a bit disappointed hat he got such little screen time. True they did describe in brief what motivated him to do the things he did but it all felt so rushed as he only showed up as the film was hitting it's stride. Producer-turned-actress Paula Patton is beautifully exotic, which makes Denzel's decision to save her digestible.Read more ›
