      The trouble with Denzel Washington is that he is the same person in every one of his movies. Every once in a while, he has a breakthrough role that is different. Deja Vu is not that kind of role for him. Compare his role in Inside Man, Man on Fire, with his role here, and you have the same man in three different situations.

      But that doesn’t matter here, or in any other Denzel film, he is a treat to


      watch. His demeanor is pleasant, even in tight situations. He is sensitive when he needs to be. He is a good man to have on your side. An in Deja Vu, what’s interesting is, the woman who needs him on her side begins the story as a deceased burn victim.

      This sets off an amazing series of events that lead Denzel’s character, Agent Doug Carlin, on a quest to prevent the events that open the film. A ferry containing many people ...


      • is blown up by a domestic terrorist on a mission from God. This girl is one of the victims, although she is not on the ferry. This leads to an investigation involving a hush-hush agency (which government agency isn’t hush-hush?). This agency has technology that allows them to look four day into the past. Denzel is asked to join them on this investigation.

        The premise is good and is carried out nicely by all the cast, especially Val Kilmer and

        Jim Cavaziel, who portrays the terrorist, Carrol Oerstadt. I hadn’t heard of Paula Patton, who plays the girl, Claire, but enjoyed her performance in this unique twist. What is more, the ending offers a wonderful twist that perfectly fits this story while at the same time provides one of the truly exciting conclusions in a movie today. If Denzel can vary his performances a little more broadly, and take on a wider array of characters, he would cure himself of sameness.
