Is Jerry Fletcher the real thing, or is he suffering from brain-burnout from writing his monthly pamphlett on government conspiracies - only his typewriter knows for sure.
This is a nice little romp down way-left-field lane, and Mel Gibson shines at playing characters on the very, very edge of reason.
Julia Roberts is very good, revealing her long-suffering patience with Jerry. Patrick Stewart makes an indifferent bad-guy, he can't help it, the plot izzz somewhat goofy.
The DVD transfer is excellent as usual! END

RRRRR!!!!! Why do people have to post a bunch of stupid reviews comparing this to Lethal Weapon? It's not Lethal Weapon, it's Conspiracy Theory. They're not at all related except that they're the same actor. This movie is great. Mel Gibson is a great actor and he proves it in this film. It's not an easy role. Jerry Fletcher is a paranoid cab driver who writes a conspiracy theory newsletter. Anyway, don't listen to the bad reviews. Go watch this. At least rent it or something and see for yourself.

A surprisingly fun movie. An entirely original concept, fueled by a terrifically crazed Mel Gibson and a cryptic Patrick Stewart. The whole thriller is, as a whole, a wonderfully fun treat. Julia Roberts is, well, she's Julia Roberts, but she's enjoyable in this one. The cast is well-rounded, and the story is original. My only quibble is directed at a few absurd plot twists at the end. Other than that, it's one of the most watchable and entertaining movies I've seen.

First saw this when it was released, then recently watched it, and it held up surprisingly well. Like most old movies, there's some bad lighting to wade through, and the plot pacing can be awkward and slow at times. But Mel's performance is still great, he plays this manic conspiracy-obsessed socially inept man very well. The plot is still compelling today, especially since the Tea Party has shifted our national conversation even farther towards conspiracy theories

Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts and Patrick Stewart - with a line up like this, you can't go wrong. Mel Gibson's portrayal of being paranoid is so good that you forget that he's only acting. Julia is, as always, excellent and I love that Patrick Stewart plays a bad guy. He is superb in his role. The movie is fast paced and action packed. Good plot, excellent acting, great scenery and overall a really good movie.

This is a great movie. Not much to say about it that isn't already said. I'd give it 5 stars but I don't have a nice stereo system with my TV and the volume is too up and down. When the music is at a decent level I can't hear the speaking parts. When I can hear the talking okay then the music comes back on blasting. It's really frustrating having to play with the volume.

I really love this movie and bought this DVD. There are absolutely no extras on this besides subtitles and a few language choices, but it is a well done little DVD and very enjoyable movie. I especially enjoyed seeing Mel's interaction with the nuns riding in his cab in the opening credits in light of his fathers controversial anti-Roman Catholic rants. Enjoy!
