A SOLID MOVIE, WITH GOOD PERFORMANCES.,
This review is from: Conspiracy Theory (DVD)
"Conspiracy Theory" starts as a comedy, with Jerry (Mel Gibson) spitting conspiracy theories like a machinegun. But after a while, some of them make you laugh and some of them ring true, the movie starts to get more serious and the plot is more and more interesting.
Mel Gibson portrays a lunatic in "Conspiracy Theory", but this is not the first time that he portrays a charismatic looney, remember "Lethal Weapon", his character was almost as psychologically damaged as his role in "Conspiracy Theory". Julia Roberts plays Alice, and she did a good job, Julia is the kind of girl that you would risk your life for her. And the villain is Patrick Stewart, he is a solid actor that pulls his role without a problem.
"Conspiracy Theory" has a smart script, of course, some of the conspiracy plots are meant to make the audience laugh, but if you pay close attention, you might see that some conspiracy theories contain a dose of satire. This is a very interesting movie.
