The Double

The Double (2011)

Writer: Michael Brandt, Derek Haas
Director: Michael Brandt
Starring: Richard Gere, Topher Grace

old agent guy comes out of retirement to find a russian spy who he hunted for blahbitty blah years. he's actually the russian spy he's looking for. he tries to keep this knowledge from the CIA and his obsessed and driven FBI agent kid.

The Woman
amazingly poor choices were made during the making of this movie. unfortunately for whoever gave this the green light it didn't matter because this movie was boring/ bad/ utterly forgettable. topher grace: not perceived as an action sort of a guy. richard gere: girly man. assassin made of wussiness. not a cold blooded killer sort. the way this was advertised made it seem like the movie was about guessing whether or not girlyman dick was, in fact, a double agent. wrong. that plot point is given away in no time flat. it's more about him evading detection, but in a boring/bad/utterly forgettable way. there was a kind of twist at the end, but it wasn't important to the stupid plot anyway, so the viewer (me) couldn't care less by the "reveal".

if you have some sort of want to view this movie walk away my friend, walk away. go sit on the toilet and take a 98 minute dump. it will be a more productive way to use that time.
