Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The twist in The Double slack mystery-thriller is revealed with a shrug about a third of the way in. After that, it's all about Gere looking grim, and Grace looking stricken as he learns what we already know.

The Double does contain some delightfully over-the-top twists that make no sense but are great fun to consider.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
The movie was directed by Michael Brandt, who co-wrote the script with Derek Haas. Together they wrote a much better movie, "3:10 to Yuma." The Double doesn't approach it in terms of quality. None of it is particularly compelling.

The Hollywood Reporter

A barely warm dish of Cold War leftovers that shows its hand too early, then works itself into an increasingly implausible tangle of knotty plot developments without ever mustering much intensity.

Gere and Grace do make a decent odd couple, but neither seems entirely committed.

The Double is barely half the movie it had the potential of becoming.

Rarely has Mr. Gere walked through any movie with so little energy and so much indifference. I've seen more fervor on the face of a man parking a car.

Speaking of the script, questionable motives and unbelievable decisions are relatively small potatoes compared with the Sputnik-size plotholes.

Michael Brandt's soporific thriller is making a token stop in theaters before its January DVD debut. Miss it if you can.

If the idea of a political thriller with a modern-day Cold War theme resonates with you or something in our collective unconscious, my FOMO levels are higher than a lonely night on Facebook.
