Consensus: Tony Scott tries to combine action, science fiction, romance, and explosions into one movie, but the time travel conceit might be too preposterous and the action falls apart under scrutiny.

David Jenkins
Time Out

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.

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.

Joshua Starnes

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.

Rarely have [producer] Bruckheimer and [director] Scott been so upfront about insulting people's intelligence.

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

Pretty dazzling, as action adventures go, even when it's wildly, almost defiantly, implausible.

Cole Smithey

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.

A fun action sci-fi piece with an really interesting idea at the middle. It doesn't come off as well as it could. It's no Man on Fire, but as far as… More

Innovative action with a plotline that doesn't know how to explain itself. Denzel's great as usual.

Deja Vu has one of the coolest concepts ever and executes it really nicely. The story never dies down to be an incredible action thriller with a great… More
