Conspiracy: Hell Hath No Fury Like Revenge...
Conspiracy movie review: Iraq war vet MacPherson (Val Kilmer) is asked by a combat friend to meet him at a small border town in Arizona to discuss recent troubles. MacPherson, scarred from his experience, reluctantly agrees, and after the long bus journey, arrives to find an old west-style community, run by the reptilian Rhodes (Gary Cole). With help from a concerned local (Jennifer Esposito), MacPherson learns the terrible truth behind the town’s construction, leaving him no other option but to take the law into his own hands and declare war on Rhodes and his force of corrupt cops.“Conspiracy” is a truly ridiculous film. Yet, the casting of Kilmer and the occasional bit of surprise that manages to sneak out of the script keeps this DTV effort strangely compelling. Constructed as a western, the picture plays very broadly with images of redneck brutality, humbled heroism, and various offerings of violence. I can’t imagine this is the picture director Adam Marcus (“Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday”) set out to make when he first envisioned his movie, but I was impressed with the filmmaker’s tenacity and ambition to make a rough-n-ready revenge film absolutely devoid of a noticeable budget.Official movie site: Conspiracy
