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.
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. HurleySee all Product description

disappointing gave it to friends who didn't en joy it either
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.
I hired it from the library, but really I should've been paid to watch...
I think Mr. Gilroy should duplicate more where his strengths lie.
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).
