Dejavu , directed by Jerry Bruckheimer, starring Denzel Washington (unusually smiley), Val Kilmer (a bit hefty), and Jim Caviezel (not so Jesus), is one of the best films I have seen that blends solid acting, intelligent plot development, creative and gripping special effects, entertaining action, and theological dialogue.

Without introducing a spoiler, suffice it to say that the action is classic Bruckheimer, the narrative christocentric, the dialogue at once deterministic and voltarian, and the conclusion pleasing. Colored by speculation on parallel universe theory and the dejavu phenomenon, the film delivers and eclectic yet cohesive action film filled with philosophy.

Lines such as, "What if you had to tell somebody the most important thing in the world, but you knew they would never believe you? I would tell them anyway. You never know what people will believe." invite dialogue and reflection.

Check it out, with a friend, and explore these finely filmed themes.
