This was awful. The concept was interesting but the main twist came way too early, and the second twist seemed to be thrown in for the hell of it. Also there is no way in hell the rookie fbi figured this out with the amount of information he had. and his even more green lacky came to the same conclusion with a "look" from topher? are you kidding me? Waste of time this movie was.

Good acting, great plot and twists in the story. The only thing that perhaps was a bit off was the script. But over all very enjoyable movie

Everything was fine involving cinematography and setting etc. However, there was a signficant lack of any real tension and the plot is predictable and write-by-numbers for any CIA movie.

The Wife and I sat and watched this flick on Netflix last night and at first we were like well it should not be that bad because Richard Gere is in the movie and he makes good movies.
Wow was this a good movie Yes it was although I figured out who the bad guy was within the first 20 minutes this movie was more than just find out who the bad guy is and it had twists and turns and everything you wanted in the movie.
Although it states PG I would say its for the adults cause of the subject matter and the many kill murder scenes you see.
The movie is a few years old but totally worth it. My wife was fully focused on the movie and not the iPad for the entire length of the movie.
If you like thinking action thrillers then this is top shelf.

Hopefully only in Hollywood is the FBI this dumb.

Michael Brandt did a good job on casting Richard Gere in the protagonist role, I probably couldn't see anyone else playing Cassius. But my advice would be to avoid the trailer because it reveals the plot of the movie and you will regret it trust me. I thought the dialogue was good between Gere and Sheen and of course Topher Grace, but the movie in my mind should have had more of a twist instead of Ben Geary, played by Topher Grace finds out at the end of the movie that Cassius has been beside him the hole time. Of all the opportunities Cassius got he could have killed Geary at any time and would have got away with it, but the majority of the movie does be entertaining and I would recommend if your into action.

You spend 98 minutes of your time wondering what this is finally - nothing !

A somewhat good film that tries too hard in some aspects to make it work. A few twists and turns made this movie respectable, but unfortunately head scratching.
Richard Gere plays a mysterious character here who you think is good.
His evil identity is revealed halfway through the movie, so it does make it kind of an interesting approach.
Topher Grace plays a young FBI agent who is on pursuit of Cassius a famous murderer who seems to have resurfaced.

Gere plays an experienced agent who claims to also be an expert in Cassius. When it is revealed he is Cassius, it takes away the excitement in my opinion.
I thought the movie spoiled a surprise ending in the middle of the film, even though it was an interesting route to take.
Grace was ok, and the twists and turns at the end we're not that good and I think the movie really took the wrong approach.
Still a decent film because Gere was really good here.

The idea is good - the execution is woeful: one laughable twist after another from a script that seemed to scream out: "why not make this guy a 'double'. And this guy. And that one too.".

A boring, dull and unentertaining movie. It tries to hard and lacks details throughout the film.

Didn't quite expect the twist at the end...

The plot is decent and intriguing, but everything becomes jumbled and the ending isn't as great as anticipated especially with a cast of lazy actors.

The Double is a disappointing film. It is about a retired CIA operative is paired with a young FBI agent to unravel the mystery of a senator's murder. Richard Gere and Topher Grace give horrible performances. The script is badly written. Michael Brandt did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.
