This is one of the movies that I love, but can’t tell you exactly why. I think, in the end it’s got ‘everything’ I like in movies:
- A solid, likable protagonist
- Science fiction
- Memorable setting
- Interesting visuals
- Good script
- Memorable music
- Good cast
That’s pretty much my wish list, and Déjà Vu delivers. But one of the best things about this movie is that the science fiction element is so central to the story and yet so underplayed. The ‘find the terrorist’ plot holds your focus well above everything else.
If you’ve not seen it and don’t know the plot, then trust me that is the best way to see the movie. I’m so glad that’s how I saw it the first time.
And for the cinematography buffs, the film uses some techniques which I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else.
