Deja Vu

The script for this time-bending thriller mixes sci-fi elements into a procedural drama genre in a way that is tautly constructed and fun to watch. While I appreciated the screenwriting, the overly spectacular opening visuals and an overall ethos of matrix-y, music-video'd sequences throughout made the movie feel too much like a vanity pic for the director and Denzel.
