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.

Its relaxed air of menace, and occasional bursts of violence hold one's attention even when the plot falters, which is often.

Even Viggo Mortensen's movingly enigmatic performance as identical twins can't help first-time Argentinean director Ana Piterbarg decide whether she is making an existential tone poem or a brutish thriller.

Viggo's performance is the only payoff for the patience you will need to get through Everybody Has a Plan.
