Critic Reviews for Everybody Has a Plan
Hats off to Viggo Mortensen. The actor pulls off playing identical twins in this Argentinian thriller - which never quite lives up to his talents.
Everybody Has a Plan is in the vein of, if not on the same plane as, Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger.
Mr. Mortensen keeps you watching, even when the movie's storytelling underwhelms.
Everybody Has a Plan isn't overburdened so much as stretched pitifully thin, and the double-the-fun result is closer to the dueling-Elvises vehicle Kissin' Cousins than, say, Dead Ringers.
Audience Reviews for Everybody Has a Plan
With the exception of director, Ana Piterbarg. Obscure, obtuse, buried in boredom: Viggo Mortensen characterizes twin brothers ("Agustin"/"Pedro") plainly, diminished in the womb, they flounder in their professional and personal lives; empty vessels, blessed with substantial female companions.
The film is set in Buenos Aires, plus a depressed island in the Delta; Agustin cloaks himself in the guise of his brother, Pedro, and the nonsensical scenario of crime, subterfuge, malfeasance is dumped upon a naive audience who ventured into this flick to witness Mortensen's proficiency, loquaciousness in the Spanish tongue; receiving a passing grade in Spanish 101, but unworthy of viewer attendance.
ONE & 1/2 STARS!!
Ill admit its well made, and looks good, and moves at a good pace, and viggo is a really good actor, but i didnt really like his character that much, he goes and assumes his brother's identity without doing any research into what he does or who he knows or how he acts, and his reasons for even doing it in the first place is pretty sketchy (imo at least) the lead girl is pretty good tho, i liked her scenes
