Deja Vu movie story

Deja Vu

NOTE: Another great spoiler sent in by P.D. Chambliss who says... "STRAP ON YOUR SEATBELT BECAUSE YOU’RE GOING ON A FANTASTIC ROLLER COASTER RIDE!"

Déjà vu stars actor Denzel Washington as an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agent assigned to investigate a ferry explosion in New Orleans, Louisiana. The movie starts off in the present and then shifts back in time to solve the crime.

THE PRESENT

As the movie opens, there’s a ferry being boarded by lots of military personnel and their families. It’s a beautiful, sunny day and the passengers on the ferry are having a joyful celebration. Below deck, one of the ferry’s crew members is on patrol and hears a radio playing in one of the vehicles on the ferry. The crew member moves closer to investigate and sees no one in the passenger seat of the truck. The crew member takes a look at the back of the vehicle and sees no license plate. Finally, the crew member takes a look in the back seat and sees a suspicious device…just before it explodes and takes the ferry down killing 543 people at 10:50 a.m.

ATF Agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) is called to the scene to investigate (along with dozens of other personnel). The crime scene is completely chaotic. Family members are clamoring for information on their loved ones and the press is eager to get a story. In the midst of the crisis, the local police are trying to prevent public panic so they refuse to classify the ferry explosion as intentional or “terrorism”.

While other agents are doing damage control with the press, Carlin takes samples of debris which have washed up on the river banks and surveys the local bridge. Carlin finds residue on the bridge which indicates the ferry incident was not an accident - but sabotage. Carlin shares this information with Agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer).

Agent Pryzwarra introduces Agent Carlin to members of Pryzwarra’s team. In the process, Agent Carlin discovers his partner, Larry Minuti (Matt Craven), has been killed (important later). Agent Carlin leaves the room in order to absorb the tragic news alone for a few minutes and Agent Pryzwarra talks to his team about joining forces with Agent Carlin to solve the ferryboat crime. It seems working together will be beneficial for both sides: Agent Carlin is an experienced agent, intelligent and able to analyze crime scenes quickly (important later) and Agent Pryzwarra’s team needs an agent with Carlin’s skills.

Agent Pryzwarra is the Head of a Special Technology Task Force and has some pretty unique tools to solve the ferry bombing. Pryzwarra and his team control a device called “Snow White”. Snow White takes images from multiple satellites and combines them. In addition, Snow White allows a person to view images and track the body heat of subjects which helps recreate crimes scenes (important later). However, Snow White has a few flaws when it comes to tracking suspects. First, suspects can only be viewed within a certain radius. Consequently, if a suspect is fleeing in a car, Snow White can lose track of a suspect. (In order to remedy this, the tech team has special headgear rigged in a Hummer which allows suspects to be pursued in high-speed chase. (There’s an AWESOME chase scene where Carlin wears the head gear/eyewear and Snow White team members see a suspect using Carlin’s eyes).

In addition, Snow White will allow certain events to be viewed only once (this is why it’s important for the agent to be experienced, able to analyze scenes quickly and tell “what’s changed or what’s different” since the last time the scene was viewed). Agent Pryzwarra talks to his team and the team decides to join forces with Carlin…

In the meantime, Agent Carlin receives a call while working the ferry case. It turns out a woman’s body has washed up on the riverbanks and the body needs to be viewed at the morgue. An assistant informs Carlin the message about the woman’s body “came in at 10:40 a.m.”. Carlin corrects the assistant by saying “you meant 11:40 a.m.”. The assistant repeats 10:40 a.m. (10 minutes BEFORE the ferry exploded). Intrigued, Carlin goes to the morgue to see what he can find.

Carlin visits the morgue and finds the body of Claire Kuchever (Paula Patton). Claire’s body has been badly bruised and mutilated (she’s missing fingers from one hand). Examination under an ultraviolet light reveals Claire’s mouth has been duct-taped and the residue on Claire’s body matches the residue of the ferry crime scene. In short, if Carlin finds Claire’s killer, Carlin will find the person responsible for the ferry explosion.

Carlin visits Claire’s father and learns Claire was supposed to pick her father up from the airport. Worried when Claire didn’t appear, Claire’s dad leaves a message on Claire’s answering machine along with other friends (important later). Carlin extends his condolences to Claire’s father but Claire’s dad goes an extra step: he gives Carlin pictures of Claire laughing and filled with life saying “I know how these things go” (basically cops have too many cases to care about one individual but if Carlin sees Claire alive and vibrant…maybe he’ll care enough about Claire and be motivated to solve Claire’s murder). Carlin takes the photos of Claire and leaves.

THE TIME TRAVEL BEGINS

It is against this backdrop the story takes off. Carlin goes to work with Pryzwarra’s technology team: Denny (Adam Goldberg), Gunnars (Elden Henson), and Shanti (Erica Alexander). Denny, Gunnars, and Shanti control the audiovisual images of the crime scene. Carlin recreates the crime scene using Snow White and views what’s believed to be taped footage of Claire at a local bar and in her home.
