After a ferry is bombed in New Orleans, an A.T.F. agent joins a unique investigation using experimental surveillance technology to find the bomber, but soon finds himself becoming obsessed with one of the victims.
Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
A ferry filled with crewmen from the USS Nimitz and their families was blown up in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. BATF Doug Carlin is brought in to assist in the massive investigation, and gets attached to an experimental FBI surveillance unit, one that uses spacefolding technology to directly look back a little over four days into the past. While tracking down the bomber, Carlin gets an idea in his head: could they use the device to actually travel back in time and not only prevent the bombing but also the murder of a local woman whose truck was used in the bombing?

The Humvee driven by Doug is based on a real-life robot H1ghlander built by Carnegie Mellon's Red Team for the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge. See more »
The bomber arrived at the ferry dock at 0440 which means Carlin's chase could not have started before 1040. During Agent Carlin's pursuit of the bomber, we get a glimpse of Pryzwarra's watch when he is picking up the phone that shows 5:45 which could be 0545 (five hours too early) or 1745 (meaning Carlin took seven hours to get to the Crescent City Bridge). When Carlin starts to walk away from the Hummer in daylight, his watch shows 0950 (50 minutes too soon) but when he gets on the other side of the house, the time shows 1135 (more in sync with the timeline).

After seeing "Man on Fire" I was looking forward to a movie from Tony Scott and Denzel. The movie was worth waiting for. I have seen this movie at a theater with no empty seats. The story is great, the acting is pretty good. There were a few moments where the story was broken but was not a big issue within the whole story. The story is about a terrorist blowing a ship where there was a celebration of the Navy. Denzel investigates the crime and finds some clues that don't make sense. He is invited to work with a special investigation unit because he is a local (and a smart detective). There are pretty original action scenes that were shot clearly (unlike "Domino" where the camera was shaky and fuzzy all the time). If you like an action movie with some good story, this is the movie for you. TRIVIA: The word "Dejavu" is not mentioned even once, in the movie.
