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.

The film starts to sour after 20 minutes...

...more long-winded than cunningly elaborate, more simplistic than elegantly simple, and more nonsensical than anything else.

...the strong impact that Gibson makes as damaged goods is diluted by selling Jerry as cute and redeemable.

In the hands of stars in denial about their stardom and a director who can't be bothered to take things seriously, it has come out implausible and unsatisfying, a comic thriller that is not especially funny or thrilling.

Donner is slick and shallow, but somewhat off his game here.

Unfortunately, the parts of the movie that are truly good are buried beneath the deadening layers of thriller cliches and an unconvincing love story.

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.

En route to this cynical fade-out, Conspiracy Theory does show off enough glossy style ... and incidental cleverness to keep viewers largely hooked.

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.

...listening to Gibson's Jerry try to communicate what he's been through isn't suspenseful; it's exhausting.
