Duplicity didn’t do a whole lot for me when I last saw it back in 2009 as the chemistry between Julia Roberts and Clive Owen wasn’t entirely palpable though I did enjoy some of the story elements.

The opinions I share are my own.


PLOT SYNOPSIS


Claire Stenwick (JULIA ROBERTS) and Ray Koval (CLIVE OWEN) are former government operatives who are now collecting big paychecks from rival companies as corporate spies. Their latest mission is to grab the formula for a product that will earn a fortune for whichever company patents it first. The stakes grow even higher than expected when Claire and Ray become embroiled in a passionate, clandestine affair, though neither one can decide how far to trust the other.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included so for some reason, Gilroy’s commentary was not ported over…

 


VIDEO – 3.75/5


This edition of Duplicity, after already being released on Blu-ray a decade ago, comes from Mill Creek presented with a 2.40 widescreen aspect ratio. Without doing a direct comparison, I’d say this is probably on par with that version which has respectable enough detail and colors are generally bright since the movie is lighter in tone. Nothing amazing but satisfactory enough I suppose.

AUDIO – 4.0/5


The included DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is more than adequate for a movie of this ilk. Most of the movie consists of dialogue with some added depth for some of the more thrilling moments, but like the picture, can’t say there was anything especially exceptional.

 


OVERALL – 2.75/5


Duplicity didn’t do a whole lot for me when I last saw it back in 2009 as the chemistry between Julia Roberts and Clive Owen wasn’t entirely palpable though I did enjoy some of the story elements and you can never go wrong having Paul Giamatti as your villain. As for this Blu-ray, if you already own the older Universal release, you can skip this version.
