Deja Vu

Watched this movie on DVD.

The movie, directed by Tony Scott (Domino, Man on Fire, Enemy of the State) stars Denzel Washington as Doug Catlin an agent with the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms Bureau) who is investigating a bomb blast that kills over 500 people on a ferry in New Orleans.

Pulled in on a special team with the FBI headed by Agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) which has access to technology that looks into the past and which is able to send Doug into the past to save Claire (Paula Patton) and capture the bomber (Jim Cavaziel), stop the bombing.

Changing the past means setting off the series of events on an alternate path to the future. So can going back into the past change the future and save lives ?

The movie is nice but not great since somehow the tale is predictable, thanks to all the going back in time movies we have been exposed to, starting from Timecop with Van Damm. Val Kilmer has more of a cameo role but puts in a controlled performance. Paula Patton looks nice and puts in a good performance.

Coming to Denzel, who is rated among the best of actors, whom I like too, but always have this feeling in the back of my head that he overacts. That feelings continues to remain even after watching this DVD. Whats good about the movie is the pace of the movie. Its quick and does not waste time and does not try to explain every little thing to you.
