The governor of a Mexican state is assassinated. Soon after, junior executive Daryl Chase's life turns upside down: after he flags a huge transfer of funds from a Mexican account as probably illegal, he's attacked in his apartment, rescued by a CIA agent, finds his secretary shot dead, and witnesses two cops get killed. He calls the CIA guy who tells him to grab the next train to Mexico. Leaving Manhattan, Daryl can't shake a jive-talking street punk named Freddy, and soon he's traded clothes with Freddy to escape the police. Within days, his girlfriend, his boss, his client, Freddy, the FBI, and the dead governor's dog are tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Who's who? Written by
Considering that Double Take is marketed like a spinoff of the old TV show "In Living Color", I was very surprised when I found a real action/adventure joint along the lines of Bad Boys here. It actually has a very well written plot to it.
A little whodunit with some action and some comedy to keep it fun. They even had an Old School dance sequence thrown in (believe it or not)that had me going, "Oh snap! I haven't seen THAT since middle school!"
Both Eddie Griffin and (the 7UP dude) prove that they can both actually act. That was the LAST thing I was expecting - and that's a GOOD thing!
Go see it.
