Product Description

Product Description

Sci-fi thriller starring Denzel Washington. When a ferry filled with crewmen from the USS Nimitz and their families is blown up in New Orleans, Federal Agent Doug Carlin (Washington) is brought in to help with the investigation. He becomes attached to an experimental FBI surveillance unit that uses spacefolding technology to look back a little over four days into the past. While tracking down the bomber Carlin gets an idea in his head: could they use the device to actually travel back in time and not only prevent the bombing but also the murder of a local woman whose truck was used in the atrocity?

From Amazon.co.uk

In his most effective thriller since Enemy of the State, Tony Scott makes time travel seem plausible. It helps that his New Orleans hero, ATF agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington in his third go-round with the director), spends more time in the present than the past. In order to catch a terrorist, FBI Agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) invites Carlin to join forces. They have the technology to see the past. He has the expertise to interpret the data. Unfortunately, the bomb has already gone off and hundreds of ferry passengers have died. Then there's the body of a beautiful woman, Claire Kuchever (Paula Patton, Idlewild), that turns up in the vicinity of the blast. Evidence indicates she was killed beforehand. Since the FBI enables him to observe Claire prior to her murder, Carlin gets to know what she was like and finds himself falling in love. He becomes convinced that the only way to solve the case--and prove her innocence--is to travel to the past. But as Pryzwarra's colleague, Denny (Adam Goldberg), argues, "You cannot go back in time. It's physically impossible." Or so he says. Déjà Vu is constructed around a clever script and executed by a top-notch cast, notably Washington, Patton, and an eerie Jim Caviezel (miles away from Passion of the Christ). In shedding the excesses of recent years--the sadism of Man on Fire and weirdness of Tarantino favorite Domino--Scott re-affirms his rep as one of the action movie's finest practitioners. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

First of all the good points -

1. Tony Scott's direction is brilliant - keeping the energy of the story rolling along at a good pace and cranking it up to edge of the seat stuff towards the end.

2. The acting is great - in particular that of Denzel Washington - I am begining to think that Denzel is one of the best actors in the world at present and the only thing he lacks is maybe a wide range of film genres under his belt. In every action film I have seen him in he has delivered a brilliant performance which really helps the viewer associate with the plight of the character. This film is no exception.

3. The story idea is cool - I am a sucker for time travel (big fan of 'Doctor Who' and 'Back to the Future'), this is more like a contemporary and gritty none kick-boxing version of 'Time Cop'.

Now the bad points and there is only one and I've already mentioned it -

1. the story idea is cool - so why waste an opportunity? The writers could have done so much more with this, it could have been so much more complex and riddle-like and seemed to lack imagination. I felt very disappointed that the story line was very linear and predicatable. I was also very bemused at the scene where he shines the laserpen onto the screen and the woman whose past they are viewing sees it - there's far fetched and there's far fetched and this stretched even my incredulity to the limits. So that's why only 4 stars.

If you liked 'Paycheck' or 'Twelve Monkeys', don't have a problem with time travel sci-fi and know how good Denzel is then I would recommend this to you.

BEWARE, SPOILERS...

I am a sucker for time travel stories, and for me this is one of the good ones. I just love the quirks and twists and paradoxes that are inevitably thrown up. What's more, I can watch this one again and again. Of course there are bits where you can think to yourself "that's a bit silly", such as the moment where he realises they aren't just watching a film but that it is really a two way street, and confirms it by shining a laser pen on to the screen, which somehow miraculously makes its way through all the electronics, through the worm hole, and out in to the room where it is seen by the people they are watching 4 days ago. Since when did a TV screen become an unintentional input device like this? Instead of mucking about sending bits of paper back to try and alert themselves, why don't they just shout at the screen? Surely that would work too...

But then you could apply logic to the entire premise of pretty much any sci-fi film and destroy it. You just have to let your imagination go a little, sit back, and enjoy the ride. If you can do that, this is a great film with some great actors in it. I enjoyed the ride very much.

Most people have seen a variety of time-travel films, most of which cover the same type of plot: some form of accident occurs, the main character finds a way to travel back in time to prevent it. Bing bang bosh.

This film does have elements of this classic formula but it also introduces a whole new factor: trying to influence the past from the present. I won't say too much as I don't want to add any more spoilers to the ones that have already been posted but I will say that it has something more than most films of its kind.

This is definitely one to turn your brain off for because if you try to get your head round it, especially if you have a scientific background like me, you will go mad! When it comes down to it, the feasibility of the concepts introduced in the story aren't important because it's science fiction!! FICTION being the operative word.

I only didn't give this film 5 stars because in my opinion no film is perfect enough to deserve 5 stars but this one is close. Just sit back and enjoy one of the best time travel films since Back to the Future!

By Mr Baz #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 2 July 2014
Format: DVD
This is quite an interesting film mixing the thriller genre with bits of science fiction. The film is quite good overall, though doesn't quite reach it's full potential it is still worthy of a watch.

The story starts off with ATF Special Agent Douglas Carlin (Denzel Washington) being sent to help investigate a terrorist bombing of a ferry carrying U.S. Navy sailors and their families, in which hundreds of people are killed in the explosion. Carlin teams up with FBI Agent Paul Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) and both start to try to piece together the events using more traditional investigation methods.

They soon find that an apparently unrelated incident involving the murder of Claire Kuchever (played by Paula Patton ) has a lot more to do with the ferry bombing than another murder case that happened to be at the same time frame as the bombing.

This is where the science fiction bit slips in, and depending on how you like your films it's either a good move or makes the plot somewhat stretched. It comes to light that there is a secret super high tech surveillance program called "Snow White", which allows the investigating team to look back into the past. The storyline unfolds using a mix of present and past events, with a view to trying to stop the bombing happening in the first place via time travel. It's similar in some respects (but not all) to the arguably better "Source Code" which was made some years later in 2011.
