Several months ago I wrote about seeing a preview for "Duplicity" and being excited to see Julia Roberts and Clive Owen's chemistry on screen. This week I finally saw the film (via Netflix of course) and was incredibly disappointed! Julia and Clive lacked any believable connection, the plot moved at a tortoise pace, and what should have been an engaging, suspenseful spy movie just fell flat. How can two actors who are so stupendous in their own right lack star power together?
Skip "Duplicity" and rent "Closer" a film also starring these two heavyweights, but one that packs more punch.
