Product Description

Two ex-spies battle it out for love and money in this slick corporate caper starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen. After leaving the world of espionage behind, CIA officer Claire Stenwick (Roberts) and MI6 operative Ray Koval (Owen) find themselves on opposing sides, both trying to secure a secret formula that will make their respective multinational bosses (Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti) a fortune. However, as they each try to outdo the other, urged on by their eager employers, with double-crosses and underhand moves aplenty, they soon find themselves falling for the oldest trick in the book - love.

From Amazon.co.uk

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen surprise and delight on multiple levels in Duplicity, a caper film that keeps the audience guessing if the tone is cheeky, seriously, or both in exactly the same scene. Owen smolders as the relaxed, craggy sexual beast he's become--effortlessly--and Roberts is surprisingly mature and tic-less. And their chemistry threatens to explode out of the beaker. On one level, Duplicity is a sparring romance, bringing to mind the no-holds-barred zingers between Cary Grant and Roz Russell in His Girl Friday. But the film has layers of action and suspense, as well as a neat spin on the spy business. Instead of hunting for, or protecting, confidential state nuclear secrets, as each character once did when they first met, now they are beholden to captains of industry and Madison Avenue--seeking secrets not of national security, but of formulas to the next great… moisturiser. Director Tony Gilroy, who wrote all the Bourne films and wrote and directed Michael Clayton is clearly carving out a snappy path for himself as a master of sleek, suspenseful, energetic films that nonetheless appeal to a mass audience. A special shoutout to the opening scene of a fistfight on a tarmac between Armani-clad CEOs (one played by an especially memorable Paul Giamatti). "You on one side, me on the other," says Roberts' Claire at one point to Owen's Ray. "It's perfect." Perfect grownup entertainment. --A.T. Hurley

I was quite surprised that the film had been 'slated' by critics when released and not apparently rated, well i've got to say...i enjoyed the movie.
I found it to be a clever plot with several moments of 'dry' humour, which i for one enjoy.
The plot, an agency tries to steal a mystery formula from another for 'great' financial gain.
Agents 'Ray Kaval' (Clive Owen) and 'Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts)become involved in the exercise, both believing they have the edge on the other, but who is 'playing' who.
When the couple fall for each other they conspire to steal the formula to try and sell for '40' million, but.... do they actually trust each other ?
As well as which are they themselves being 'played' by their respective employers?
I found it flowed pretty well, 'Clive Owen' and 'Julia Roberts' team up well in this movie.
Worth a viewing.

Hmmm, it seems that Tony Gilroy has been watching Soderbergh's Ocean 11 quite frequently. However, this disjointed effort lacks the finesse and (obviously) the originality , in it's hopeful product. A convoluted plot that tries desperately to be clever with an up-beat jazzy score, yes, ala the Ocean' films, which gives the illusion of a sharp witty storyline, but misses the mark. Roberts seems distracted ( not by Owens) as if, she too were wondering about the script.The repetetive dialogue that becomes the 'signature ' of the films main protagonists(Roberts and Owens) is cliche and bewildering as the hallmark 'duplicity' of their situation and as the film progresses, fails to ring true , so diminishing the plots supposed layers of complexity. Also the finale shows a tying off of all the ends , with an added double-crossing that surely would have been detected by the Roberts /Owens team; it alludes to professional naivete in two hardened and seasoned professionals, not to mention a gross oversight in their grandiose money -making scam. Michael Clayton was a superb film and a return to the much missed genre of a dramatic thriller with 'real -life' implications and moralities, without being too slick or arrogant.
I think Mr. Gilroy should duplicate more where his strengths lie.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By K. O'Leary on 29 Aug. 2009
Format: Blu-ray
Although the media reviews have been generally favourable, this film has received some criticism, mostly due to its convoluted plot and what many people perceive to be an unsatisfactory ending. I also think the first 15 minutes or so of the film are a little weak, there is an unconvincing slow-mo of the two main protagonists scuffling at an airport, and the first of many "Thomas Crown" style split screens accompanied by some hip jazz - this all looks a little contrived, as if the director is trying to jump on the Quentin Tarantino / Guy Ritchie bandwagon ten years too late.

However, by the time the credits roll I was totally satisfied by this witty and stylish thriller. Although the plot is cryptic and is told out of sequence, Pulp Fiction style (Tarantino again), you were still given enough breadcrumbs to understand what was going on, with the added bonus that the film will stand repeated viewings when more details may be picked up. The script in particular is a highlight, very witty and highly amusing at places, I found myself hanging on every word. Performances by all the cast are top notch, Owen and Roberts work very well together, although Julia isn't carrying quite the level of glamour we normally associate with her here (sorry, but she is playing a romantic lead). Owen appears to be going from strength to strength, I've not seen him in bad film yet (thank goodness he didn't sign-up for Bond). As for the ending, well, in my opinion it was excellent; very brave and totally unexpected, and also looking a little like the door is being left open for a sequel (although I doubt very much we'll see one).

As for the presentation on Blu-Ray, well I thought the image quality was pretty average for a modern release (nothing wrong with that, I just found it unremarkable), although colours are vibrant, and the glamorous locations do look good. Sound quality is strong though, with a good choice of soundtracks (there is also a huge choice of subtitles).

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER on 10 April 2009
Format: DVD
This is a fun film, lightly amusing in parts, but ultimately quite slight. Others have reviewed the plot, such as it is, so I won't repeat that. Julia Roberts is excellent as the ex-CIA operative, the usually wonderful Clive Owen was, however, less comfortable as the ex-MI5 man. Their bickering yet passionate relationship didn't light any sparks on screen, and really that's what this kind of film relies on. However there were some clever plot twists and Tom Wilkonson and Paul Giametti were superb in their manic portrayals as obsessively warring company executives. If you're looking for light entertainment then this will pass a couple of hours quite happily but don't expect anything more.

I kept watching just to see where it was all leading, but it was a total waste of time. I really enjoyed 'The Bourne Trilogy' but this is at the other end of the spectrum, completely. I feel a bit better knowing others have felt the same, when I read the reviews on here, as I can usually understand plots etc! I'm wondering if this was an experiment of some kind to see how many people would just not admit they couldn't understand most of it. The synopsis given above cannot relate to this film.
I hired it from the library, but really I should've been paid to watch...
