Deja Vu - 2006

  • Feb 14, 2009

Pros: intriguing story, great machines

Cons: none for me but could be confusing for some

The Bottom Line:
“Whats done is done
So you must see
You can't bring back whats already been”

In a long line of things that once again prove that the government and scientists have way too much knowledge and power, and the world is really nothing but one large continuum of events, we enter the world of Deja Vu.

There may or may not be an explosion of a pleasure vessel that takes 543 lives off the shore of New Orleans. It might be investigated by ATF agent Doug Carlin and FBI agent Paul Pryzwarra. There may or may not be a dead girl found miles away from the explosion that is mysteriously linked to it all. All these things could have happened, or maybe they didn’t happen at all. Maybe Carlin did go back in time and change the events that surrounded the explosion. Maybe he did stop the murder of the girl. Or maybe none of this existed.

Whatever happened, it centers around a really uber cool machine that involves a time window and a bridge between two time eras that can take you back four days and view events that happened in the past. And by linking the dead woman’s last days on Earth to the explosion of the pleasure vessel, maybe you can change the time link and prevent the disaster from happening.

It all goes back to my theory that those truly involved in all things mysteriously scientific are strange little dweebs that will ferret about in something until they get it resolved. Fortunately, in this case, they had an equally ferreting dweeb in the persona of ATF agent Carlin, who was determined to solve the mystery, link the dead woman to the bomber, find the bomber, prevent the death of the woman, and prevent the explosion on the vessel.

Can he do it? Should he do it? Isn’t that warping an event that has already happened? What will that do to the Ka, the Karma, the circle of continuum? 

Deja Vu was directed by Tony Scott, nominated for 6 awards and winning one. It carries a PG-13 rating for violence, terror, disturbing images, and some sensuality. Which reminds me, those scientists weren’t all dweebs all the time the horny little toads.

The three main characters were Denzel Washington as agent Carlin, Val Kilmer as agent Pryzwarra, and Jim Caviezel as the bomber, Carroll Oerstadt. Now, friends, if that isn’t deja vu on its’ own merit; Malcom X, Jim Morrison, and Jesus Christ. Talk about time continuum!

All played their parts very well. Without attention the movie could have become quite confusing and, frankly, should probably be watched more than one time to catch all the quirky nuances of time travel and so forth. Those machines, however, I’m telling ya … if you never believed in Big Brother before, this one will do it for you. I’m constantly looking over my shoulder now.
