Denzel Washington, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott ignite a firestorm of excitement with DEJA VU on Blu-ray Disc. This powerful, fast-paced action-thriller will "keep you bolted to you seat" (Pete Hammond, "Maxim") as it blows you away in this jaw-dropping format. Called in to recover evidence after a horrific explosion, Federal agent Doug Carlin (Washington) is taken to a top-secret government lab that uses a time-shifting device to help prevent crime. But can it change the past? Negotiate every mind-bending twist and turn with visually spectacular 1080p, while the walls tremble around you in 5.1 48 kHz, 16-bit uncompressed audio. You'll have a blast experiencing it again and again in Blu-ray High Definition.
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
I like this film because it's a mixture of sci-fi and drama. Mr Washington always does a great job at any film he puts his name on. Read morePublished 22 hours ago by Tony

|Wasn't Doug killed?||
When you realize that we viewers were seeing two parallel ribbons of time, moving in the same direction but with different outcomes, you understand why the living Carlin had the Deja Vu moment in the car with Claire in the last scene. It's strange how in the present Carlin was also see the tracks... Read More

|Somebody Explain What Happened in the Past...||
Of course! Carlin had tried time travel before, returned to the past but failed to save her the first time. The second time (first thirty minutes of film) we see the bloody rags, etc. which is HIS blood but of course he does not remember. At the end of the movie this is at least the second... Read More

|Deja Vu What movies does this remind you of?||
12 Monkeys does a good job with a similar theme, but I'd rather not say so much that you can't enjoy the surprises and twists if you decide to check it out.

Yeah, it's called "Time After Time" except in that case its H.G. Welles chasing Jack the Ripper and trying to prevent a murder. There are some similarities but that doesn't detract from the twisting plot of this movie.
