Deja Vu

I find Tony Scott to be a remarkably consistent director. I can only think of a couple of his films I haven’t much enjoyed, and even then they’ve been interesting to watch. I don’t know whether he’s very good at picking intelligent scripts or he just makes them seem that way, but I’ve left the cinema after seeing Spy Game, Man on Fire and Deja Vu feeling like I’ve been told a complex story very well. He can certainly craft an action scene, too. I walked into Deja Vu this evening without any idea of the plot other than one viewing of the trailer, and it really suited this kind of blind viewing. I thought it was great fun, clever and well made, plus not at all what I expected. Recommended by me.
