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.

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.
