Conspiracy Theory Review

When I entered the theatre I was expecting a fairly light mystery type movie, and came away pleasantly surprised and somewhat dissappointed at the same time. The film opens with an extremely amusing sequence which sees Gibson's character (paranoid...more

CONSPIRACY THEORY wasn't very well received by audience and critics. Personally, I think it lacked a sense of nerve and thrill. Mel Gibson plays Jerry Fletcher, a paranoid taxi-driver with an extraordinary past. He spends most of his time telling...more

A friend of my mother's is a compulsive collector of odd trivia. One night she came back after a cab ride with six photocopied pages of closely-packed conspiracy theory gibberish, which the cabdriver had apparently foisted off on her after lecturing her...more

"Conspiracy Theory" is a puzzle box. This entertaining, engaging and thoroughly loopy thriller is full of surprises. Itís a rare, and quite refreshing, treat to watch a Hollywood film and actually be kept off guard almost all the way through. Richard...more

**1/2 (out of 4) The problem with a movie titled CONSPIRACY THEORY is that if you take it too seriously, the whole movie becomes a joke (like JFK, to some extent). Don't take it seriously enough, and your action movie becomes a farce. Richard Donner (who...more

This fact made me feel better about giving "Conspiracy Theory" four stars. You see, I have yet to find anyone out there, critic or no, who thought that "Conspiracy Theory" was a great film. I figured there must be something wrong with me. I saw it twice,...more

There is no question about the acting abilities of Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts. Given that, it is unfortunate that the story jars with reality when we have to assume that Alice (Julia Roberts), an attorney in the Justice Department of New York City...more

I know guys like Jerry Fletcher, Mel Gibson's whacked-out protagonist in Conspiracy Theory. Maybe they aren't so overtly insane, maybe they don't keep padlocked coffee containers inside their padlocked refrigerators to avoid poisoning by their enemies....more

Conspiracy Theory Review

In a summer of better movies, I'd probably give CONSPIRACY THEORY a lower star rating, but 1997's mid-year crop of blockbusters has been less than noteworthy, and that's made even this muddled Mel Gibson / Julia Roberts thriller seem entertaining...more
Conspiracy Theory Review

I've fallen in love again with Julia Roberts. It's been a while since I've seen a movie with her in it but I'm glad to see her again. Conspiracy Theory is a movie that doesn't go far enough on anything. It doesn't have enough action to be an action film,...more

Yet another Donner/Silver/Gibson team-up with Julia Roberts thrown into the mix, Conspiracy Theory really does little to go beyond the formula of the Lethal Weapon series - the set-up, the funny middle, and the sagging, auto-pilot, guns-a-blazing ending....more

Conspiracy Theory Review
by Mike Borzumate
The two principal actors, Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts, performed very well in their roles. The other players gave spotty portrayals, but none that were lacking enough to be considered outright bad. more
