Summary: Mel Gibson & Julia Roberts, how could you lose! Oh.
Mel Gibson plays a mentally disturbed individual (imagine that), a writer of a conspiracy theory newsletter that apparently got the attention of "them". The sugar level is just a tad too high in this movie, which can be attributed to Julia Roberts's character. I fail to see why she is so popular. Patrick Stewart plays the leader of the bad guys, "them", the unnamed agency or whatever they are. We never really learn for sure. The movie starts out very choppy, like an epilectic fit, and as it calms down, there are a few holes left unfilled. What remains is an ordinary action film, which Mel does very well.

Summary: Mel does crazy
I know it's a bit of a stretch for him, but Mel Gibson plays an unstable freak in this movie. Oh wait, has he done that before? Well, anyway, this unstable freak happens to be right, and people are trying to kill him. Julia Roberts is here, for some reason. They have some chase scenes. People get tied up and beat up. There are guns. Yeah, that's about it.
