Following a terrorist attack on a ferry carrying U.S. Navy sailors in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, ATF agent Douglas Carlin (Denzel Washington) begins his investigation alongside the FBI. Impressed by his work he is offered the chance on joining a brand new task force called “Snow White”. This top secret project allows them to look back at the past 4 days and help them to solve crimes such as the ferry bombing. The drawback is you can only see four days previous and that means you only get one chance so you need to know where to look. This is where ATF agent Douglas Carlin expertise comes in.
Will he be able to locate the terrorist and bring him to justice?

Conclusion: Deja Vu Film Review
Denzel Washington is perfectly cast in this highly entertaining sci-fi crime thriller. The film is fast moving as it needs to be as the whole plot revolves around a limited amount of time to catch the perpetrator. However it’s also a film that’s well worth watching carefully just like with The Sixth Sense.
