Movie: DeJa Vu

December 23, 2006

Interesting thriller based around time travel-ish technology.  Some new technology lets people view four and a bit days into the past, within a given area of where the equipment is.  So taking it to the scene of a crime (in this case a terrorist strike killing over 500 people) means that investigators can use this to view the crime. But can they change the past?

Denzel Washington is a great lead as the investigator pulled into all this. The Cinematography is outstanding, particularly striking during the bomb scene and when zooming around ‘in the past’. Set in New Orleans in present time the film compares the terrorist attack that takes place to the natural disaster of Hurricane Katrina as well as issues of ‘cause and effect’, ‘can we change the past’, ‘what difference do small decisions make to long term outcomes’, etc. movie poster

A good thriller, which doesn’t unfold as expected. I am glad that I didn’t recognise the baddy in this film as the actor who played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ.

Quotes:
Denny: You know you don’t have to do this.
Doug Carlin: What if I already have?
