Deja Vu may feel like a rerun as rescue workers move in to recover bodies and debris from a terrorist act. However, the violence continues as a discontented outcast opens fire on police and innocent bystanders. Characters are disfigured, shot, burned, crushed, drowned and involved in serious automobile accidents. Dead bodies are shown piled along the wharf and a mutilated corpse is examined in a mortuary. Unbeknownst to her, a woman is being watched by government officials. She is shown wearing only underwear, and breast and buttock nudity is shown when she showers. The script contains profanities, an extreme expletive, smoking and references to drug use.
