The Identical (2014)


Critic Consensus: With nearly every element ringing as hollow as the ersatz Elvis at the story's core, The Identical looks destined for a bright future on the ironic viewing circuit.

Movie Info

Identical twin brothers (both played by Blake Rayne) are separated at birth during the Great Depression. Their parents (Brian Geraghty, Amanda Crew) just cannot afford to give them both a life beyond poverty, so one is adopted by loving family. Despite their very different upbringings, the boys' shared passion for music causes their lives to unknowingly intersect as they experience a powerful and mysterious connection often felt by twins.

All Critics (68) | Top Critics (23)

Where is all this going, you ask? Good question.

Sep 5, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

It's stocked with clichés, but they're arranged in such weird ways that the end result is both predictable and certifiable. If only any of it actually went somewhere.

Sep 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Connoisseurs of the most wonderfully terrible cinema need to run out and catch this one early and often.

Top Critic

The music is so terrible and it is such a focal point of the film that it was difficult to get past it.

Sep 5, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

"The Identical" is ultimately too schematically sentimental, even with Liotta playing against type, to have much of an impact.

Sep 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Trading strictly in visual and narrative cliches, The Identical is so solemn and silly that at times you could swear it was a lampoon.
