Audience Reviews for Columbo: Double Shock
Double Shock tries to deliver twice the mystery, but it doesn't quite realize its full potential. Lt. Columbo's case against local culinary show host Dexter Paris for killing his rich uncle gets complicated when he learns that Dexter has an identical twin brother who could also be the killer. Martin Landau pulls double duty, playing identical twins; however he tries a bit too hard to distinguish the characters from each other. Julie Newmar also stars, and gives a strong supporting performance. Still, the directing is poor and unfocused, and weakens the film. Though overall it's a little underwhelming, Double Shock does have an intriguing mystery and some clever twists.
