Conspiracy Theory
Warner Bros. / 1997 / 130 Mins / Rated M15+


MOVIE
Conspiracy Theory stars Mel Gibson as Jerry Fletcher, a New York cab driver who believes in all the government conspiracies. He talks about the frequently to his customers, but the one person he truly trusts is Alice Sutton (Julia Roberts) a Justice Department attorney. 

She thinks he is nuts, but one of his theories turn out to be true and he seeks her help from the shady Dr. Jonas (Patrick Stewart) Which one of his theories is correct? 

How can 2 people beat a government who are trying to cover up one of there mistakes? Watch it and find out. 

Although some parts of the movie are a little far fetched, it's still a fun little watch.

VIDEO
Excellent quality actually, the whole movie seemed crystal clear and was free of any MPEG noise and the dark scenes were very well rendered. And I would consider it to be one of the best looking WB DVD's to date.

Conspiracy Theory is framed at 2:35:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is a Single Sided, Single Layer disc.

AUDIO
Like all of the Warner Bros. discs so far the movie is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is very clear and presents a very dynamic sound field. Surrounds are used quite frequently and very well, in both outdoor scenes and action scenes. This is a great testament to the sound designers on the movie. The .1 channel was only really use in some action scenes and also a very little bit to underscore the music score.
EXTRAS
All there is extra's wise on this disc are production notes, cast bios and that's about your lot. No trailer or nothing, it's really the only disappointing thing on the disc.

Subtitles include: English, Arabic, Closed Captions.

FINAL THOUGHTS
This disc is a good buy, it's a fun movie, although a little far fetched sometimes. The lack of extra features brings it's score down some. But the quality of the visuals and sound do push this disc over the above average pile.
