Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Double has plenty of action, switchbacks, and double-crossing drama to satisfy the most jaded action fan. Director Michael Brandt (making his directorial debut) cut his writing chops on such fast-paced fare as 2 Fast 2 Furious and the remake of 3:10 to Yuma, so he's right at home moving the plot along at a feverish clip. Richard Gere is enigmatic and just sympathetic enough as Paul Shepherdson, a retired CIA operative who's brought back into action after the assassination of a United States senator to help track down his long lost (and supposedly dead) Cold War nemesis. He's assigned by his boss, authoritatively played by Martin Sheen, to work with a rookie agent, Ben Geary (Topher Grace, who can hold his own against these film lions just fine, thank you). The Double has elements of the best buddy flicks, a little bit of the Bourne films, and more than a little homage played to The Usual Suspects. Stephen Moyer plays a very believable menace to the free world. But is he the dreaded Cassius? As the tension rises and the plot thickens, one wishes Gere had a bit of a harder edge--like, say, a mid-career Harrison Ford or Samuel L. Jackson. Yet in some ways the "soft" casting of Gere helps keep the plot aloft. The Double is a perfect popcorn spy caper that will have the viewer guessing until nearly the end of the film. But will that be too late? --A.T. Hurley

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on June 29 2016
Format: DVD
Richard Gere, a retired CIA agent is called back from retirement to find a Soviet assassin believed to have been dead. A senator was murdered with the killer using the same MO as code name "Cassius" a former Russian agent assassin who was never caught. Gere is paired with Topher Grace, a young desk jockey from the FBI. Topher studied Cassius and wrote his thesis on him. He believes Cassius is alive and retired in the US and is the recent killer. Gere claims it is a copy cat killer and does not want to work with Topher.

There is an early plot twist, something we get enough hints to clue us in. Even though Topher lacks field experience he is fairly savvy. As they seek out Cassius, bodies start to accumulate. Martin Sheen plays the head of the CIA. While an early mystery is solved for us, there are others that exist. There are action scenes, killings, and drama. I felt the acting brought the film down. Gere was wrong for that role. I really would have liked a hipper Travolta. I did enjoy the soundtrack, which was a mild Russian pagan metal with a good drum beat. Makes for a decent spy drama rental. 3 1/2 stars. Gere fans can take it to 4 stars as he looks like he has stayed in pretty good shape for a man his age.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Mild swearing.

I didn't know what to expect from this movie but I really enjoyed it. Richard Gere and Topher Grace were both very convincing in their roles. Many twists and turns, action and political intrigue make this well worth seeing. I will be watching it again for sure!
