    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    A needlessly complicated and confusing thriller. show more

    Déjà Vu cannot escape the weight of its murky science, action-film formula and preposterous ending. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Déjà Vu is pretty dazzling, as action adventures go, even when it's wildly, almost defiantly, implausible. Movies can make us semi-believe the damnedest things. show more

    David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer

    Like "Man on Fire," the previous collaboration between Washington and Scott, Déjà Vu is stunning but poorly paced, a film that manages to be both captivating and frustrating. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    It takes chutzpah to title this movie Déjà Vu; every scene in it rings a bell. Certainly, I had just seen the same affable-righteous performance from Washington in Spike Lee's "Inside Man." show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Unlike the last Scott-Washington matchup, "Man on Fire," Deja Vu boasts a muscular, fast-forward story that won't be overwhelmed by Scott's need for speed in the form of rapid cuts and all that visual fusion that have become his stylistic trademark. Here, the approach is perfectly suited to the picture's time-shifting, multitasking structure. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    It's an almost overwhelmingly professional picture, murderously fast, slick and full of outlandish notions, painstakingly realized. And it's also surprisingly satisfying -- thanks to Washington, a good cast, Tony Scott's swift direction and that unyielding professionalism. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Starts out a lot like an expensive-looking episode of "CSI" before morphing into a solidly entertaining time-traveling romance. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    An utterly preposterous but entertaining sci-fi action brain-bender. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    You aren't likely to see a more ludicrous movie for the rest of the year. But rarely has such ludicrousness been used to pay tribute to a town in need of love. Déjà Vu is generic enough to have been filmed anywhere. But it happens to be set in post-Katrina New Orleans. show more
