Editorial Reviews

Val Kilmer stars with Jennifer Esposito and Gary Cole in this explosive, action-packed film about a former Special Operations United States Marine who brings justice to a small border town. After he's wounded during combat in Iraq, MacPherson (Kilmer) reluctantly agrees to join a fellow soldier at his Arizona ranch. But when MacPherson arrives, his friend has mysteriously disappeared and no one will admit to knowing him. When he discovers that a corporate entity is running illegal aliens out of town by any means possible, MacPherson decides to get revenge and won't stop until everyone involved has been punished for their crimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Ole Boys get their butts whupped by Val Kilmer December 19, 2008
With a few pages from the Rambo film "First Blood," Val Kilmer as ex-Marine and Gulf War veteran "Spooky" MacPherson arrives at the border town of New Lago, in search of his USMC buddy who needs help building his new home in the nearby town of New Hope. Kilmer gets rousted by the Sheriff and his gang of red-neck deputies employed by the megalomaniac John Rhodes (played by Gary Cole - Midnight Caller, Talladega Nights, In The Line Of Fire, Pineapple Express) of Halicorp (a not-so-subtle liberal shot at the Halliburton Corp.) who seems to own the town and its environs; and who also belong to the "United Borders" force (another not-to-subtle shot at the "Minutemen" organization).

Anyway, to make a long story short. MacPherson is arrested, "washed down" (a la First Blood) and then the fun begins when the deputies assault him in his cell later that night. He of course escapes, kicking their butts in the process and then leads the bumbling red-necks on a car chase (he's in one of the deputies cars) which ends with him being shot over a small cliff. Oh, by the way, he suffers PTSD, which in a way, helps him survive and escape.

Well, of course he survives (we later learn he was wearing the body armor of one of the deputies) to be rescued and put up in a small Mexican village by Joanna (Jennifer Esposito - Crash, Related, Samantha Who?) who has been taken care of by the evil Mr. Rhodes. She wants MacPherson to bring down Rhodes. After telling her he's not the man to do it, she shows him the video tape of his friend and families murder.

After that, it's Hell on Earth for Rhodes and all his flunkies.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's Not a Conspiracy! April 17, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie vanished without a trace--but it's not a conspiracy. It's just no blockbuster. Adding to what has already been written above: Kilmer plays "MacPherson", an Iraq war veteran (I wasn't even sure which Iraq war he was in, but does it really matter? Presumably it was the latest one). His unit gets hit by an explosive device in a particularly nasty fashion, a bunch of men die and others are badly injured. He and another man spend months recuperating and become best friends. He returns home (somewhere in CA I think) and has PTSD. Friend keeps bugging him to come down to AZ. Finally he goes down, only to find said friend gone, and nobody admits to having heard of him, or that his address even existed. Meanwhile the only news in this 2-bit town is all the new construction going on by--like the man above said--Halicorp. Yes the bad guy is sort of a cross between Cheney and Erik Prince or something. He's virulently xenophobic but there must be more than that going on in his plans (exactly what is never quite made clear) because his construction project seems pretty big.
Well this really isn't much of an action film--it starts slowly and then--well kinda stays slow because Val Kilmer just isn't an action hero anyhow. The best we get is some closeups of his face changing emotion as he somehow transforms from a PTSD wracked vet going nowhere, to a man with a mission again--to figure out what happened to his friend--and then, to pay back a debt of gratitude to him. Gary Cole plays the villain "Rhodes". Greg Serano plays "Miguel", Kilmer's wartime buddy. Jennifer Esposito plays the romantic interest. The music isn't too bad. If you watch this with zero expectations, it's not too bad a film...

2.0 out of 5 stars Obviously A Low Budget Movie! August 24, 2010
Val Kilmer is a retired marine who visits a town to see his marine friend, only to find out that he got brutally murdered with his family. He then transforms into a "Rambo" and kills all the bad guys in this town.

The script was bad!

The direction was so bad! (low budget)

It is disappointing to know that some big actors such as Val Kilmer would agree to act in such movies.

The only thing that this movie got away with is that it somehow was able to not get you bored while watching it. I think its the action that kept us watching till it ended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Much of a Conspiracy November 5, 2012
Val Kilmer stars as a disabled ex-Marine William "Spooky" Macpherson in the 2008 direct-to-DVD Conspiracy that is somewhat inspired by 1955 film Bad Day at Black Rock which was based on the short story Bad Time at Honda by Howard Breslin. After receiving a phone call from a fellow Marine, Spooky packs up what little belongings that he owns and travels to border town of New Lago. To his surprise, nobody in the town has ever heard of his friend and he is not wanted there. He soon learns that the small town is owned and controlled by John Rhodes (played by Gary Cole). Spooky is arrested, but quickly escapes to lead a one man war against Rhodes and his crooked sheriff office.

Conspiracy is another action movie that I have never heard of before. The premise is interesting and Val Kilmer and Gary Cole do their best, but there are numerous plot holes. The Marine jargon is incorrect and the supporting cast is horrible. New Lago looks like it came out of the 1800s. The town looked more like a tourist attraction than a realistic small town. I don't care much for Val Kilmer, but he does a decent job with what little he had to work with. Gary Cole is the best part of the film as the corrupted villain. In the end, I did find Conspiracy to be somewhat entertaining with a few decent action scenes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stupid movie
This movie sucks. Probably one of Kilmer's worst roles ever. There are absolutely no redeeming qualities to be found here.

There are a number of movies that arrive on DVD shelves that are sent straight there, never to play on the large screen. Some of these are overlooked gems. Read more
