Ray Koval and Claire Stenwick are former secret agents from respectively MI6 and the CIA who decided to give up their jobs in order to go into corporate espionage. What their bosses don’t know, however, is that they’re working together in order to get their hands on some super secret information to sell to a third party in a means to get extremely rich. But can they really trust each other?
Sound and Vision:
The image and sound quality are as you would expect from a Blu-ray disc without being extremely great. The contrast is good, there’s plenty of detail and compression errors are absent. There’s some very minor grain present here and there but never obnoxious.
The sound does its job nicely with some good use of the surround speakers for abience while dialogues are crystal clear coming from the center speaker.

Dupllicity is, much like f.i. Ocean’s 11, a movie with double and triple plot twists added with some chemistry between Clive Owen and Julia Roberts.
Duplicity doesn’t stand out of the crowd in any way and although Roberts and Owen do a decent job and Paul Giamatti is perfectly cast as the paranoid industrialist, the movie just can’t get you excited in any way. The plot twists are hardly unexpected up till the very ending where there’s one that makes you wonder what the goal was from the beginning. It doesn’t happen all too often but when you ask yourself what the idea behind the plot of a movie was there’s definitely something wrong.
Dupllicity constantly seems to wonder what type of movie it wants to be and that cluelesness makes that in the end it’s nothing special
