    Hmm, I get the feeling I have seen that movie before...

    I've seen it, a 10 billion dollar forensic apparatus that bends spacetime which enable crime investigators to see "events from 4 days ago streaming live on the screens".

    That was a fantastic movie. One of the better time travel movies I have seen.

    **spoiler**

    What I never got however is that they show from the begining that he already traveled back in time, throughout the movie he witnesses clues and evidence of the fact that he was already there. yet if that is true then why is the girl dead in the beginning? in the end of the movie he goes back and we see him setting into motion all the events that we witnessed before, only this time he saves the day so what was different this time around?

    That is a spoiler if we don't consider the multiverse theory or parallel timelines and superposition. Time flows like a river, sometimes a twig in a river causes some water not to flow forward but to swirl in a loop instead. My interpretation is that Agent Doug didn't travel in time, he jumped into a parallel timeline and removed the twig (the terrorist), he died in the process and his alter-ego got the girl.

    So you think the first time he went back he couldn't save her or the ship but left himself clues so the next time he traveled back (in yet another alternate line) this time he would be successful?

    The phone message record in the main timeline indicates that Agent Doug saved the girl in parallel timeline which enable her to answer her friend Beth, she is alive in that looped timeline and dead in the main timeline. The main timeline will continue.. the girl as well as the passengers of the ship are dead, Agent Doug is gone, and the terrorist is in jail. Snow white is a useful forensic apparatus albeit the physicists is not observing the past but parallel timeline... just my interpretation.

    Makes sense to me. looking at it that way makes it sound a lot like "Source Code". In that movie the Military had developed a way to view the past, they acknowledged that it wasn't the actually past but the memory of it so no effects that were changed had any effect on the main timeline. Never the less this allowed them to solve crimes but gaining evidence that they normally wouldn't have access to.

    I couldn't have guessed that "Source Code" is about looped timeline. I had read about it in the IMDb, it must be a good movie too like the deja vu, I'll try to find the dvd when I shop.

    Good movies make us willingly suspend our disbelief and switched off our critical thinking circuit in favor of the story, I'm wondering how movie makers do that. We forgive some of the goofs and we ourselves explain the others.

    Agent Doug's blood appeared in the main timeline through interference of the looped timeline. Superposition is one of the interpretation of the double-slit experiment.. a single electron fired on the double-slit will be in two location at the same time and interferes with itself... mass, electrical charge and all.
