Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are charming actors and can carry a movie with no interesting things happening just fine. That is the case here. Dennis O'Hare is a joy like always plus great small parts from Carrie Preston and Tom Wilkinson and ever Paul Giamatti pops up a couple times. It's has good moments but overall it's a bore

Falta de carisma en sus protagonistas, George Clooney hubiera sido un acierto, una pelìcula que no logra despegar.

A crime / romance movie with Clive Owen and Julia Roberts in the main roles and he have been doing some really good flicks the last couple of years. Im glad to see Julia back again on the screen because it was a while ago now and she looks very beautiful like always. This movie reminds me alot of the "Oceans trilogy" with its music and similar scripts. Its quite a complicated story with a few twists here and there and many seems to have problem to follow the whole story so i tried so stay focused from start til the very end so i could enjoy it more. And i did and its was a pretty good movie but it ends up just above average level for this genre. But i can highly recommend it for those who likes more clever movies in a lighthearted way.

Pretty clever in its construction. The two lead stars are very watchable.

Fantastic. Patience and attention required to watch. One of the best capers in recent times.

Duplicity is a smart, funny, and engaging spy caper, with solid performances by Owen and Roberts, well-written script with twists and wit, and a humorous performance by Paul Giamatti thrown in there as well!

This is a very weak and boring film. Easily one of the worst Julia Roberts movies.

Another reason why Julia Roberts is nasty......

Fun enough to watch. Sadly most of the main characters are showing more ego than talent.

I mean, the first 10-15 minutes did give people hope. However.

Reasonably entertaining, although it has the ability to occasionally get on your nerves.

I really enjoyed this film. It delivers what you expect. Fun, entertainment, twists (some expected) and great chemistry. Direction is quite fun again and does not care too much about perfection, which is okay and understandable. Paul Giamatti is outstanding as always. Dialogues are witty and pace is quite evenly upbeat. All in all, a great watch on a friendly, easy day.

Duplicity has clever acting performances by Julia Roberts and Clive Owen. The plot is a smart non-linear narrative, however, the amount of plot twists is too high making the movie difficult to understand.

Directed by Tony Gilroy, (Michael Clayton (2007) and The Bourne Legacy (2012)), this is a bubbly spy comedy caper which has a good plot, but there's too many twists and turns to keep up with. That unfortunately keeps it from being compelling, however if it has been told in a linear fashion over it's complex juxtaposed form, it wouldn't have been as entertaining. But it does have a good cast to it's name. This tells the story of MI6 agent turned corporate spy Ray Koval (Clive Owen) and CIA Agent Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts), who have crossed each others paths at various times over a 5 year period, beginning in Dubai when Claire stole classified documents from Ray. Since then, Ray now works for Dick Garsik (Paul Giamatti) at Equikrom, while Claire does work for Burkett & Randle, ran by Howard Tully (Tom Wilkinson), and both companies are planning to steal chemical formulas off one another. But, we learn that Ray and Claire have a past and they've been planning to con both bosses, and make a massive deal that'll set them both up for life. While Roberts and Owen have fun playing spies who lie for a living, that backfires when it comes to the finished product of the film. It could have been made less complicated and still made sense, but the flashback and flashforwards do work against it. But it's not all that bad, but it could have been better if it was simpler.

"What I got to say about "Duplicity" is that is a stupid and boring." The performances in this movie are distasteful. The directing and screenplay by Tony Gilroy is extremely awful and dreadful.The screenplay is so confusing that you won't have no interest what's going on in the movie. For my opinion, "there's no screenplay understand base on what going on. It will completely leave you hanging on what the story line really is." The score is good. "I'm raving that "Duplicity" is horrible movie that is not a must see!"

Duplicity is smart and stylish but it dragged out and i'm not a fan of the cast all that much, even if they mostly were all very good. I think this is probably better on a second viewing but i'm not willing to go through it all again. The twist is nice though, but annoying when you're sat next to people exclaiming the whole movie is shit the entire way through.

An enjoyable post cold war era spy film, but this time it's industrial intelligence as two powerful multi-national companies are pitted against one another. A caper film, and a romance for a cynical age, this is full of quite a few twists and a satisfactory resolution.

A twisting and turning plot that might have been too twisted for the masses.
Fortunately for me, the chemistry between Clive Owen and Julia Roberts more than make up for it.
Duplicity tells the story of two ex-government spies who end working for private companies. The interesting part of duplicity is supposed to be the fact that these two companies will go to great lengths to get information from each other in order to produce a product first.
I'm sure stuff like this goes on every day in real life.
I don't think it's really entirely necessary to understand the plot to enjoy the film. I'm sure most people would disagree and that's why it was so poorly received by most audiences.
I think Duplicity is at least worth a rent. Just be ready to pay attention.

I can wait until it comes out on DVD, though, so I can see it for free.
