DUPLICITY
2 SPUDS ON PRIME

DUPLICITY

 

OK, so this is another Hollywood movie ( | seem to
be on a kick these days), that was made in 2009,
with Clive Owen and Julia Roberts who play retired
spooks now working in Industrial espionage for rival
manufacturing companies

They make a plan to rip off an idea that one com-
pany has acquired and sell it to some other company
for big bucks and then head off into the sunset

But that's gonna take a lot of skullduggery.

This 1s a very complex, quick paced sort of film that
doesn't take itself too seriously and for that reason
makes it very enjoyable to watch

There is a great cast of characters including Tom
Wilkenson and Paul Giametti as the owners of the
rival companies

The only thing | wasn't too crazy about was the use
of shrunken frames to transit from one major scene
to another. | thought it was a bit cutesy. But other-
wise, this was just a lot of fun with people who know
what they are doing

It's not the greatest movie I've ever seen. But for
this genre, which | like a lot, it's a refreshing change
from all the seriousness, and voice-coached slavic
voices dark tension.
