Synopsis

In The Double, the mysterious murder of a US senator bearing the distinctive trademark of the legendary Soviet assassin "Cassius”, forces Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere), a retired CIA operative, to team with rookie FBI agent, Ben Geary (Topher Grace), to solve the crime. Having spent his career chasing Cassius, Shepherdson is convinced his nemesis is long dead, but is pushed to take on the case by his former supervisor, Tom Highland (Martin Sheen). Meanwhile, Agent Geary, who wrote his Master's thesis on Shepherdson's pursuit of the Soviet killer, is certain that Cassius has resurfaced. As Shepherdson and Geary work their way through crimes both past and present, they discover that Cassius may not be the person they always thought him to be, forcing both to re-examine everything and everyone around them. -- (C) Image

Review

Suspense fans unite; finally Hollywood has made a movie you can write home about! This seemingly up front plot takes a wild turn into the deep. Is that really what I think I saw? Comes to mind as a phrase you will repeat at least once. It will also make you rethink if the "Bad Guy" is really a bad guy. Well written, and although it may seem slow moving at times, you need it to fill in the blanks with the subtle clues hidden within. I say pop the corn, ice the soda…you will not want to get up once it starts. This movie is a definite Double…watch it twice.
