I experienced 'Duplicity' as a sequence of individual scenes in which the characters uttered titbits of info, to make up a comprehensible storyline. In my opinion, they failed! Several plots intertwined, ig. Roberts and Owen trying to con a company out of 40,000,000 dollars, Roberts and Owen planning to go for the jugular and take over entire companies, two rival companies planting moles among teams of excecutives and Roberts and Owen bickering and quarrelling, in order - surprise, surpise - to live happily ever after. The whole caboodle did nothing for me. Had the score not been as great as it had, I would have turned it off half way through. My advise is to watch Duplicity with closed eyes and enjoy the music. You can't go wrong!

The film started off okay, as usual Clive is a bit wooden. The film seemed like it was going somewhere and then the dialogue started to grate, the acting was half comedy but not funny. Normally I rate Julia Roberts but this wasn't her best but it was the film's fault. I think I got to the hotel scene and then had to stop watching there are too many better films to watch.

Highly entertaining. Liked the little sting in the tail. Clive Owen and Julia Roberts make the ideal couple to present this type of film

I expected more from this film, perhaps a slow build up and then a climax, but no nothing, not even a simmer. It was also overly complicated for such a simple film and I found myself been distracted throughout the film, until half way through I switched off and didn't watch the rest.
Two strong actors but awful storyline.

I have struggled to understand this film ever since it first came out, and I payed full price for a Blu Ray copy on a pre order. I am surprised that these two :stars: could produce such rubbish, it taught me a lesson and that is do not pre order new films, But I still make the odd mistake. IE. I ordered the new Blu Ray version of Heat ( see my review) another disappointment but for different reasons. PS I can think of a better name for this film, it should be named after a well known Christmas bird, but then again I am just intellectually inferior to Jonathan Ross, I have to admit it!

What a silly movie - clearly created as a vehicle to appeal to both sides of the atlantic. Clive Owen and Julia Roberts wander through a nonsensical plot and are wasted in this farrago. Not something they will be proud of.

You will need to keep your wits about you, but will be rewarded.

The 1 star reviews are wide of the mark when they say the plot is too complex - not as normally one dimensional as many hollywood action thrillers are these days but lets engage our brains people, and concentrate for longer than 15 seconds. I'm not overly bright but enjoyed the plot, the twists, the flashbacks, the acting. All of it. Not the greatest movie, but well worth a watch if you like the leads and want a mentally engaging, whodunnit (who's gonna do it maybe!)
