If you are a person easily confused with flash backs or have had Deja Vu, yourself, then this movie will be a familiar site. Our hero Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) is an ATF agent investigating a terrorist style event on Fat Tuesday. During his investigation he hears and see things that are just too familiar, Has he really seen or done things all ready that have effectively put himself right in the middle of the terror plot to kill hundreds?
He meets Agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer), who looks terrible in this movie he looks like he had a stroke and put on 100 pounds. However Pryzwarra shows Doug that the government has the ability to spy in 3D and the computer system used can predict the image so they literrly can walk through the events leading up to the events of Fat Tuesday, however Doug doesn’t believe it, and find out that in reality the governments ‘device’ can look back in the future only 4 days and 6 hours. Doug feels he can change the future or at least the future where the terriost has killed so many. Doug thinks he can jump BACK into the past to stop the events or change their course. Well does he? You will have to go see this movie for yourself.
This movie has some great explosion scene never before scene, its looks just too real. It also have a bit of a political undertone related to Hurricane Katerina, since the movie takes place in the same area as the devastation path of Katerina. We revisit some of the damage. Although it was a very sad event caused by none other than mother nature, Hollywood is using a movie to show us what we all ready know. I can say that it’s a Tony Scott movie, akin to Man on Fire (Denzel again, hmm), SPy Game, Enemy of the State. All of which showcase the government as being all knowing yet clueless to whats standing in front of us. Then again it is a movie, it is Hollywood and it is fiction.
The movie and the paradox is either I am my own grandpa, or Denzel is a time shifting expert. You decide on your own.
Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and terror, disturbing images, and some sensuality.)
Mr hnack rating : 3 TV’s of a scale of 1-5.
