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.
Commentary with Michael Brandt (Director/Writer) and Derek Haas (Writer)

I wonder if The Double was written 20-30 years ago - the style is more reminiscent of the spy genre from that era than the Jack Bauer heroes of today. There's no sex, swearing, running around on cell phones, demanding to be connected with the President, kidnapping the daughter, and so forth. Overall it feels very small scale given that a Senator has just been murdered and there's just a couple of guys in the government working it out (who both report to the of the whole thing). There are some fairly ludicrous plot holes along the way which you just have to ignore to keep the disbelief suspended.
Still, it's a pretty enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours and doesn't deserve the horrible reviews it received. Although the last act gets a little old in the tooth, it reminds me of the golden years of this genre. Though you can't help but feel Jack Bauer would have handled it somewhat differently.
