Tony Gilroy's directorial follow up to the phenomenal Michael Clayton is an impressive addition to his short but impressive filmography.

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are reunited for the first time since Closer, and they're a messed up couple again. But this time they're secret agents, which is cooler.

When it comes to sorting out where we stand with someone, we're all spies. Tony Gilroy realizes that romance done right involves invigorating risk, and "Duplicity" offers a bracing, beguiling shell game of behavior to complement the light shenanigans.

It's not unfair to say that Duplicity is Michael Clayton on laughing gas. What's remarkable is that both movies pretty much work.

[Tony] Gilroy may have taken his time honing his voice as a filmmaker, but there's little doubt that he's got it down to a science at this point.

... Plays like a more sophisticated Ocean's Eleven, the extra heft coming from its corporate setting.

It won't receive the critical ballyhoo of his previous film, but where Gilroy's 'Michael Clayton' lacked imagination and surprise, 'Duplicity' is a fun, witty romp.

April 7, 2009
Adopts old Hollywood mechanics %u2014- showy marquee stars, swift-witted dialogue, character-dominated plot %u2014- and relies on an audience willing to be tricked, surprised and challenged.

A perfectly-crafted espionage thriller married to the best throwback rom-com in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
April 3, 2009
Much of the fun is all about what's 'in play'--acting--from the spy and lover roles these characters may or may not be playing and which sides (personal, professional) they're playing for or against, to our assumptions about these stars' personas.
April 3, 2009
While the movie is modestly entertaining and tries to take full advantage of the promising coupling of Julia Roberts and Clive Owen, it never quite seals the deal.
