Donner directs with an efficient hand. He keeps the action moving briskly. But most important for this format, he knows how to slip in a quick joke or two without detracting from the tension of the suspenseful plot.

About a truth seeker who has a difficult time figuring out who to trust in a world where everyone seems to be playing multiple roles.

If you've ever questioned Gibson's appeal, this serio-comic thriller offers 135 minutes of persuasive evidence as to why he's become one of the world's most reliable box-office draws.

...even at two hours and 15 minutes, Conspiracy Theory is fast-paced and exciting, effectively mixing drama, comedy, ingenuity, suspense, revelation and a heartening sense of a triumph of humanity.

Mel's sheepish grins, charming buffoonery and flashes of wit carry the picture to such an extent that we are generously forgiving towards the skimpy dividend that is the return for our investment.

Gibson delivers one of his best performances as Jerry; he finds ways to make a difficult, abrasive character likable and vulnerable.

The plot is every bit as zany and far more elaborate than that of Face/Off, but here again, you just go along with the silliness to savor the performances.

What makes Conspiracy Theory interesting beyond its cleverness and currency is how the filmmakers manipulate our feelings about its protagonist, Jerry, a New York City cab driver.

In the tradition of a star-driven summer movie, Conspiracy Theory lets us know from its opening moments that it plans to fuse action, comedy and romance, in a pretty big way.

...funny, twisted, well-acted, well-written, well directed...
