Synopsis

Box set containing two popular thrillers. In 'Conspiracy Theory' (1997), taxi driver Jerry (Mel Gibson) is traumatized by a past he cannot remember, and spends all his spare time assembling information on conspiracies. He takes his 'evidence' to attorney Alice Sutton (Julia Roberts), who is investigating a conspiracy theory of her own relating to the murder of her father. When Jerry is abducted by psychiatrist Dr Jonas (Patrick Stewart), he escapes, but soon both he and Alice are on the run for their lives, their fates somehow inextricably connected. In 'Payback; (1998), Porter (Mel Gibson) carries out a $140,000 heist with his partner Val Resnick (Gregg Henry) and wife, Lynn (Deborah Kara Unger), only for them to double-cross him, shooting Porter and leaving him for dead. Vowing revenge, a recovered Porter sets off in pursuit, but in so doing attracts the attention of corrupt cops Hicks (Bill Duke) and Leary (Jack Conley), who want the money for themselves.
