Duplicity Review

| |

Didn't think I'd be sitting in on this one, but I did and my, what a surprise. Though from looking at the reviews and trailer alone probably doesn't give enough credit to such an eccentric, fun, and witty piece of work. Owen and Roberts give an amazing performance throughout and the stylized story-telling method is actually kind of effective given how simple of a formula it is. The plot, while complicated, is fairly easy to follow, and the settings are terrific (Rome, London, New York). On the other hand, this equates to the weakest part of the movie - the guessing game driven direction. All in all, it was far better than expected, and worth a watch if you're looking for a virtuous story of spies, romance, and gunless drama for yo mama. 7.3/10.
