Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A tedious, impenetrable cat-and-mouse game involving Russian double and triple agents.
Rotten: The twist in The Double slack mystery-thriller is revealed with a shrug about a third of the way in. After that, it's all about Gere looking grim, and Grace looking stricken as he learns what we already know.
Rotten: Like a magician performing one too many tricks, "The Double" overplays its deception while spinning a mildly diverting yarn.
Rotten: There's a sanded-off, textbook creativity to "The Double" that forsakes rich cloak-and-dagger textures for generic twists, hackneyed flashbacks and telegraphed moments of peril.
If you're looking for mindless movie time, this is your movie. Twists don't catch you off guard.
I recommend this film to everyone. It is a great movie and I love it. Topher grace was excellent and I'm not a fan of Richard gere at all but he was enjoyable to watch.
Poor acting, poor plot development, don't bother.
