John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Deja Vu

Deja VuBecky and I went to see DeJa Vu at the Century Park Place Mall 20 theaters in Tucson, AZ on Wednesday night. The Fandango website at DeJa Vu describes the movie as follows:

“Everyone has experienced the unsettling mystery of deja vu – that flash of memory when you meet someone new you feel you’ve known all your life or recognize a place even though you’ve never been there before. But what if the feelings were actually warnings sent from the past or clues to the future? In the captivating new action-thriller from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, written by Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilii, it is deja vu that unexpectedly guides ATF agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) through an investigation into a shattering crime. Called in to recover evidence after a bomb sets off a cataclysmic explosion on a New Orleans Ferry, Carlin is about to discover that what most people believe is only in their heads is actually something far more powerful – and will lead him on a mind-bending race to save hundreds of innocent people.”

The Review
Deja Vu was much anticipated, but wasn’t that great of a film. The acting, directing and action in the movie was fantastic, but the story was confusing and kind of lame.

The story is about Denzel Washington’s character, Doug Carlin, an ATF officer, who is recruited by the FBI to help solve a terrorist. Once recruited, Doug is introduced to a new technology that will allow him to see the past, 4.5 days ago, and find the terrorist.

The movie has very little to do with the Deja Vu as the hype of the trailer and the posters would indicate. It’s more of a science fiction, mystery thriller using strange technology.

Becky liked it less than I did. I thought it was almost worth the trip, but she definitely thought it was a rental.
