Directed By: Tony Scott

Denzel Washington is Doug. He’s an ATF agent investigating a case, only all of a sudden it is cases of déjà vu that start to lead our hero, Doug, through his crack investigating and hoping to solve a case before more bad stuff happens.

Sure, the premise sounds kind of goofy, but Tony Scott is directing, from “Man on Fire” and “Enemy of the State” fame, and Jerry Bruckheimer is producing so that usually means some good action, and Denzel is the lead, and he usually seems to have a good eye for exciting, thrilling scripts. I am looking for the next trailer before I see where this ends up on my viewing calendar, but right now the right people are involved.

(DOTR Update: I just saw the next trailer for this movie and now I’m not so excited. Why? Because the déjà vu that Doug is supposedly able to experience is due to some crazy government project that can see, transport you, feed you memories in the past of events that have already happened. I would have preferred if they just kept the original idea of déjà vu a reality, and not some wacky science project.)

Quite honestly I’ve forgotten about the story of Alexander. I mean, that was back in high school, so many moons ago, and really, do I care? Should I care? I guess there’s always that theory of we need to study history so we don’t repeat it, but should that take place on the big screen. I guess, sure, why not, but as great as a filmmaker Oliver Stone is, can we always believe his historical accounts? Who cares, this movie’s got Angelina Jolie, who hopefully will wear some revealing outfits, so I suppose I’m there.

Alrighty, so Alexander, played by Colin Farrell, is a great warrior and conqueror in a time when one really could be a great warrior and conqueror. He’s got his problems with his parents, always trying to please them, and why would a great warrior get married to anyone when he can get anyone when he’s out conquering the world, but I guess he could do worse than Roxanne (Rosario Dawson). Things aren’t always easy for a world conqueror, and the movie will most likely show this, but you can expect grand sets, giant battles, and another epic film which will probably go down as “is it better than ‘Troy?’”

Oliver Stone can probably make an epic movie as good as anyone, so this should be a winner, just probably don’t take the story as totally true.
