Ben Geary (Topher Grace, Spider-Man 3) is a hotshot young FBI Agent and family man who has studied the killer's every move. Ben thinks he knows Cassius, but Paul knows he is dead wrong. Now, time is running out to stop this merciless killing machine before he finds his next target. Martin Sheen (The Departed), Odette Yustman (Cloverfield) and Stana Katic (Castle) costar in this tense thriller from the co-writers of Wanted and 3:10 to Yuma that will keep you guessing until the very last shot.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A tedious, impenetrable cat-and-mouse game involving Russian double and triple agents. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Oct 27, 2011

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. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 27, 2011

Rotten: Like a magician performing one too many tricks, "The Double" overplays its deception while spinning a mildly diverting yarn. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Aug 3, 2016

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. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Oct 27, 2011
