‘Deja Vu’ – Review

In Déjà Vu, ATF agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) is called upon to solve a major bombing of a ferry in post-Katrina New Orleans. It is when the body of Claire Kuchever (Paula Patton) washes ashore that Carlin begins to unravel clues to a connection between Kuchever and the suspected bomber. Carlin is assigned by FBI agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) to solve the mystery and takes him to a secret high-tech ‘time-window’ lab – created by the FBI as a surveillance system, allowing them, through satellite imagery to re-create events occurring four days in the past. The chase for the bomber begins, both in real – and past time dimensions.

‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ – Review

The Pursuit of Happyness is a rags-to-future-riches story of exceptional perseverance starring Will and son Jaden Smith. After an erroneous investment into a large stock of bone density scanners, Chris Gardner’s (Smith Sr.) life starts spiralling down when he discovers that his investment is hard to sell and is barely making ends meet. Chris’s life really hits the pits when wife Linda (Thandie Newton) leaves him and he is left with his son Chris (Smith Jr.) and no money. Chris’s inspiration for success comes in the form of a six-month internship at brokerage firm Dean Witter, where he is accepted but to his dismay finds out that it is unpaid and his chances of selection are one in twenty. During this period Chris is forced to live in shelters, toilets and dodgy motels as he struggles to keep himself and his son happy and inspired.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ – Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest hits the ground running in stupendous fashion in Gore Verbinski’s follow up to Disney’s smash hit of 2003 – Curse of the Black Pearl. The action sequences, special effects and overall epic elements have been raised a notch in the middle installation of the planned Pirates trilogy. Most of the cast of the first film return in the same roles with a few new faces, human and alien alike.
