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: 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.
Rotten: A barely warm dish of Cold War leftovers that shows its hand too early, then works itself into an increasingly implausible tangle of knotty plot developments without ever mustering much intensity.
Good movie, good action, twisting plot
Good movie. Forget the critics, they're useless. This movie has lots of action, and the plot twists. Good movie.
They must have not seen this movie to give it such a horrible rating. Seriously forget what the critics say usually when they bomb a movie it is usually good you know its true. Most critics have horrible taste in movies. Ok now thats done. Twisted plot tons of action great story and keeps you interested the whole time. Richard Gere at a high point. Topher Grace is awesome aswell. See it you wont regret it Unless your a critic.
