If you think it's just a feeling, go back... and look again.
Called in to recover evidence in the aftermath of a horrific explosion on a New Orleans ferry, Federal agent Doug Carlin gets pulled away from the scene and taken to a top-secret government lab that uses a time-shifting surveillance device to help prevent crime. But can it help Carlin change the past? Hold on to your seat for an explosive and intriguing thrill ride you'll want to experience again and again.
This film felt like......like......
Now, what's that word again for the sensation that you're watching something you've seen already?
Truffaut: Can you tell me what is was about this book that specially appealed to you?
Hitchcock: I was intrigued by the hero's attempts to re-create the image of a dead woman through another one who's alive.
And I have nothing to give either—except this gesture, this thread between your humanity and mine: I want to hold you in my arms and as your soul got shot of its box of flesh to understand, as you have done, the wit of eternity: its gift of unhinged release tearing through the darkness of its knell.

Flowing through time
Healing our nation's wounds.
Surveilling from the beyond
A guardian angel
In love with an image.
Beginning - Cue slow motion shot of Denzel getting out of car.
End - Cue slow motion shot of Denzel walking towards camera.
My Opinion - Very sexy
Wave"bye bye" to plausibility and succumb to the roller coaster. I love the part where Denzel sends those innocent bystanders catapulting in their cars on the bridge without batting an eye. Awe-inspiring mindlessness... and that opening explosion has got to go in the books as one of Hollywood's very best booms.
I almost turned off the film when they said they had a camera that they could move around wherever they wanted.. Then they could see through walls all of a sudden? I could fucking kill you Tony Scott.. Turns out that wasn't it at all but I don't know that their explanation was a hell of a whole lot better. Pretty retarded. All that being said, Denzel won out in the end. He always does. I could watch that man walk for hours. Cruise can do the running, 'Zel can do the walking. Oh, and Paula Patton was great. Between this and MI4 she is definitely one to watch.
A true sacrifice
Reached through evanescent means.
Only we'll remember.
Striving to be complicated does not make a movie smart or particularly clever. This was a typical Bruckheimer invention, made slightly more stylish by Tony Scott's considerable talents, wherein any sort of "story" is really just meant as a set-up for over-the-top action sequences. There's nothing wrong with that per se, but both Bruckheimer and Scott have done better.
En este segundo visionado me he aburrido un pelin, no esta mal, pero no es de las mejores de Tony Scott.
Digital brush strokes. Cinema of epistemology. Fate fulfilled.

I say, “You can’t? What do you mean, you can’t?
Of course you can.”
Jako dobar film sa fantastičnom idejom koja je možda mogla biti bolje izvedena, bar od polovice filma prema kraju. Denzel Washington glumi kao po rutini - fantastično. Val Kilmer nekako nevažan u cijeloj toj priči ostao postrani. Sama ideja je fantastična i jako me zaintrigiralo to promatranje prošlosti u stvarnom vremenu. Uspijeli su iscenirati sve da bude savršeno i da nema rupa, te nakon što sam si opet pustio neke scene sa početka filma, sve ima itekakvog smisla. Najviše mi se sviđa što ne gubi glavu i rep na kraju, nego dobivamo fino zaokruženu cijelinu sa kompliciranim zapletom, kulnim raspletom i logičnim vrhuncom. No cijelo vrijeme imam nekakav dojam da je taj kraj mogao imat nekakav bolji okus, da nije u skladu sa kvalitetom prve polovice filma. Možda me akcija na kraju malo smorila nezz. Uglavnom uživao sam podosta; preporuka ako volite filmove u kojima postoji utjecaj na vremensko razdoblje.
So this is the explanation for those feelings of deja vu. Nice!
"Deja Vu" (the movie) is actually kinda awesome. Denzel and Tony Scott are great together and this is no exception. The premise, of course, is completely ridiculous in the real world, but not in the world of the film.
You could drive yourself crazy with any medium that attempts to meddle with the space/time continuum, but with the hook being an action/thriller it's much easier to accept any pesky plot holes and impossibilities. And the even greater thing about "Deja Vu" is the narrow track they lock themselves into. They aren't dealing with the huge overarching theme of the possibility of time travel - the system of a…
Might be early to say... but I was wrong to call this utter bullshit when it was first released, and may be one of the best handled time travel films ever.
A pleasant blend of old and new with a dark, inky character that brings to mind better vintages.
Enjoy with: a visit to Cheapo records for a used copy of the Beyonce feat. Jay-Z single of same name.
