Editorial Reviews

When a United States Senator is brutally murdered, the evidence points to a Soviet assassin code-named Cassius, who was long-thought to be dead. Two men who know Cassius best are thrown together to catch him. Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere, An Officer and a Gentleman) is a retired CIA operative who spent his career tracking Cassius around the globe. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars THEN THAT'S ALL YOU'LL EVER BE... January 14, 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, But Far-Fetched January 20, 2012
THE DOUBLE is an entertaining, at times far-fetched, espionage thriller in which retired CIA operative Richard Gere joins forces with rookie FBI agent Topher Grace to catch "Cassius," a Cold War-era Soviet assassin who has resurfaced and is now killing more people, including a U.S. Senator.

That's all I'm going to tell you about the plot of THE DOUBLE, because if I reveal more, I will be a Spoiler. There are a couple of surprising plot twists in this film, one of which even surprised me. That's not an easy thing to do.

On the other hand, that final twist is where the believability factor comes into play, but I won't say more.

The cast, which includes Stephen Moyer, and Martin Sheen, is very good and director Michael Brandt, who wrote the screenplay with Derek Haas, keeps the film, apparently shot in Washington, D.C., moving along at a nice pace.

Extras on the DVD from Image Entertainment include producer's interviews, plus audio commentary by Brandt and Haas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Double January 31, 2012
[[VIDEOID:mo1LW6R6Y5DRZLL]]Richard Gere is certainly one of the good old time movie stars that we still have around. His career has had ups and downs, and I don't know how he will be judged in cinema's history. But he has a charisma that is difficult to ignore, and you wish he could reach greater heights. This is what I felt when I watched "The Double," an electrifying and intriguing film that will keep you glued to your seat until the very end.

The film opens with the assassination of US Senator Dennis Darden (Ed Kelly), who we briefly see earlier on TV arguing with another senator about Russia's resurgence. We then meet Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere), a retired CIA agent who is an expert on an extremely dangerous Russian spy by the codename of Cassius, who is suspected to be the senator's assassin. Shepherdson is informed by Tom Highland (Martin Sheen) that he will be partnered with Ben Geary (Topher Grace), who happens to be an FBI expert on Cassius, too. Shepherdson objects this decision, because Geary's experience on Cassius is only on paper, and he doesn't have the instinct to read or understand the soviet assassin. After a while, as you probably guessed, they get to work together. But that is when the story takes a quick turn, and we very early get to know who the real Cassius is, which entirely changes the dynamic of the film, making us guess until the film's final frame.

I have always enjoyed great, non-formulaic, intelligent spy movies, and "The Double" is one of them. It truly gives you food for thought in regards to the people around us. The DVD has an audio commentary by writer-director Michael Brandt and writer-producer Derek Haas, and more. (USA, 2011, color, 98 min plus additional material).

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than Expected! February 10, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This turned out to have a very nice twist to it. Some of the scenes were a little too obvious, but over all a very good movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars not even a bad tv show, never mind movie March 18, 2012
By kennymo
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Richard Gere is sometimes tolerable, but not here. And this stinker only gets worse from there. Gere's acting range is limited to the number of times he can blink his eyes and squint, but this script doesn't call for much command of an emotional vocabulary. I found myself laughing out loud at the pathetic weakness of this plot. The reliance upon stale devices wouldn 't have been so humorous except there was no connection between them and the actual storyline. Just a jumbled mess of ideas and bad acting. I found no redeeming value in this one and I'm sorry I watched it all the way through hoping to find one. Topher needs a better vehicle and Martin Sheen must've needed a paycheck. Do yourself a favor and pass on this one. Wish I had, thats 90 minutes I'll never get back....

4.0 out of 5 stars pleasing thriller... February 1, 2012
Evidently at least one reviewer did not like the movie as well as I did. This is an entertaining movie, with an interesting plot, well filmed and well acted - I might add - by both Topher Grace and Richard Gere. While there are points that stretch credibility, this had less to do with the story, and more to do with some lapses in terms of the main characters appearance who seemed to remain a remarkably consistent age and appearance through various flashbacks in which he was supposed to be younger - anyway.

But my complaints are minor and I was not the least bit cheated for my entertainment dollar. This would make a great Sunday afternoon movie for a wet spring day, with a few cups of hot soup, some coffee and friends over to watch it with. Recommended.
