But his professional ethics and heart are torn when he is aided in the investigation by a secret surveillance system developed by the US government that allows agents to see into the past. Graphic and disturbing images, which mirror recent real-life tragedies, may be an uncomfortable D?j? Vu for audience members too.

Why is Deja Vu rated PG-13? Deja Vu is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and terror, disturbing images and some sensuality

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.
