Pathetic, boring and uninspiring thriller.
23 March 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Val Kilmer was once one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Great movies instantly come to mind such as Top Gun (1986), Willow (1989), The Doors (1991), True Romance (1993), Tombstone (1993), Batman Forever (1995), Heat (1995), The Ghost and The Darkness (1996), The Saint (1997), and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005). Unfortunately Val Kilmer's career has been marred by numerous flops and a reputation as one of the most difficult actors to work with. Nowadays Val Kilmer is keeping his career alive in direct-to-video movies and he is now a shadow of his former self. I thought Kiss Kiss Bang Bang would have resurrected his failing career although it did start to breathe new life in Robert Downey Jr's career before Iron Man (2008) catapulted him back into the big time.

Val Kilmer plays Dr Nicholas Pinter, an American doctor working for Doctors Beyond Borders during war torn Bulgaria in 1992. Dr Pinter helps a mysterious woman named Katrine played by Izabella Miko escape from a would-be assailant following a close brush with death following a case of mistaken identity where Dr Pinter is believed to be a spy.

It's a case of "been there done that" with Double Identity which has been done before with the Alfred Hitchcock classic North by Northwest (1959), however the end result is nothing short of pathetic, boring and uninspiring. I felt like everyone was sleepwalking through this thriller. Val Kilmer has packed on the kilos here and all of the charm and sex appeal he had in the prime of his career has been lost.

Apart from the fact this movie was really bad, it's a shame to see a quality actor like Val Kilmer waste his career away in rubbish such as this. Unless something promising comes up for Val Kilmer, it looks like his career is going to be stuck in the wilderness for a long, long time.

1/10
