Déjà vu: that flash of memory when you meet someone new who you feel you've known all your life or when recognize a place although you've never been there before. What if these feelings are actually warnings sent from the past or clues to the future? It is déjà vu that guides ATF agent Doug Carlin through an investigation into a shattering crime.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Take away a couple of neatly staged action sequences and you're left with a callously measured slab of US jingoism that deals with the most horrific human tragedies in the most lunk-headed and insulting way possible."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Nobody looks cooler walking in slow motion through a crime scene while wearing sunglasses than Denzel Washington -- but even the great Denzel can't save Déjà Vu."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Déjà Vu is a gimmick picture, pure and simple. It tries hard to graft an emotional story of lost chances onto the gimmick, but ultimately the gimmick wins out."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Towards the end it gets a little tiresome and hokey. But the ride of the first two-thirds is well worth the journey."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Calgary Movies
"You'll get a headache from trying to apply plot logic to it . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"I felt cheated."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"The fleetingly satisfying Déjà Vu is ultimately a self-fulfilling prophecy."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"An intriguing proposal squandered on a well-oiled hack mechanism"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"ve%u0107 vi%u0111eno"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Index.hr
"A mind-bogglingly stupid and phoney time-travel thriller conveniently set in a present-day politically correct, pre-9/11 fantasy world where Hollywood's idea of the perfect terrorist is a Timothy McVeigh-style white American male."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Rarely have [producer] Bruckheimer and [director] Scott been so upfront about insulting people's intelligence."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Pretty dazzling, as action adventures go, even when it's wildly, almost defiantly, implausible."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"The time machine element of the movie gets hokey, but the visuals are intriguing and director Tony Scott wrenches suspense and tension from every scene."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Like its protagonist, you may find yourself wanting to see it more than once to appreciate how everything fits together - which earns Deja Vu the status of a classic, at least for the future."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"In spite of its title, few will want to hit rewind to visit the movie again."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
