Starring: Julia Roberts, Mel Gibson
Considering the amount of dialogues Mel Gibson has to say in this movie, it must have cost us one whole forest to produce the paper used for making the script. Jerry Fletcher (Gibson) has partial mental instability and keeps cooking up 'Conspiracy Theories' from aliens invading earth to NASA hatching a plot to kill the president. But somehow one of his very theories turn out to be true and the only person he trusts is the very person he stalks. Alice Sutton (Roberts) who works in the U.S Justice Department, gets involved with Jerry's insane lifestyle and cant seem to get out of it. One day Jerry gets kidnapped and undergoes mentally torture and in a fit of rage attacks everyone around him and escapes. Very soon the FBI, CIA and every other crime enforcement agency is on his tail. Alice later learns that long ago in the '70's, the government undertook a project wherein they would brain wash innocent people and convert them into hardened assassins. Jerry Fletcher was one of them and it is believed that he murdered Alice's father. Jerry keeps having memory flashes and wants to retrace his past. The movie has an extremely similar story line to the Bourne movies, only difference being is that the entire story is being compressed into one solid movie here. Mel Gibson talks a lot, does a good piece of acting of being a paranoid, but is highly irritating and at times seems to overdo things a bit.
