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.

[Mortensen] plays the most lackluster pair of identical twins the movies have ever conceived.

Mortensen's pensive, Gothic brooding makes this an entirely watchable but ultimately unsuccessful piece of art-house swamp-noir.

A rather disabled story built on a rather thin concept of twins swapping lives

A curious film that has a few fine moments and builds up to an interesting crescendo, but the plot is patchy with many things unexplained, leaving us indifferent

It's frustrating that the film is so relentlessly dull, drifting through the story without a sense of purpose.

Piterbarg works hard to mute the plot's more fanciful elements. If fact, she ends up going too far in the wrong direction, turning this into an underpowered thriller instead.

Feels a little long and uneven, although Mortensen is quite superb as the two chalk-and-cheese brothers.

The atmosphere can be cut with a machete, but the plausibility resides in Mortensen's distinctive performances rather than in the narrative itself.

When the presence of the mighty Viggo Mortensen in a dual role - and speaking perfect Spanish! - can't save your movie from mediocrity, then you know you're in trouble.

Everybody Has A Plan possesses the film noir elements that might have worked for Robert Mitchum in the Fifties but writer/director Ana Piterbarg lacks the confidence and conviction to pull it off.

At heart it's a crime flick, but Piterbarg has woven in a woozy psychological undercurrent with a powerful pull that places it a cut above.

A character study can't get away with this little character, and a campy identity-swap thriller can't get away with being this po-faced.

While it's fascinating to see Viggo Mortensen starring in an Argentine thriller, the film itself is disappointing and dull, keeping all the compelling emotions so internalised that we find it difficult to care what happens.

Mortensen is on top form - twice over - but while the noir mood gathers like a black cloud, the story frustrates.

Wanna see/hear Viggo Mortensen get his Spanish on? That's a big part of the potential interest for Everybody Has a Plan, given the otherwise slow, dangling drama of its assumed-identity conceit.

Cinematography is pretty, and Mortensen is always watchable; but this is a slog to say the least.
