Trivia

The newspaper Oliver is trying to read is, according to Ben, De Volkskrant, which is an existing Dutch morning newspaper. However, the name written at the top of the page is "Volkskrante Trouw". "Volkskrante" is not a proper Dutch word, and "Trouw" is actually a different newspaper, owned by the same publisher. See more »

Goofs

After the final shootout confrontation the crime scene is taped off and shell casings are marked. The casing circled in the close-up is an obvious blank. The crimped end can be clearly seen. See more »

Hunting Himself
18 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When a senator is murdered, CIA agent Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere) that is near retirement is summoned by his chief Tom Highland (Martin Sheen) to investigate the murder of a senator. Paul has joined CIA twenty-five years ago and has been unsuccessfully hunting down the Russian assassin Cassius 7. The senator was murdered with the same "modus operandi" of Cassius 7, but Paul insists that it is a copycat.

They go to a meeting with the FBI and Paul is introduced to the young FBI agent Ben (Topher Grace), who has prepared his Harvard thesis based on the killer. Tom asks the reluctant Paul to work with Ben to find Cassius 7 whereabouts. But the problem is Paul Shepherdson is Cassius 7 and Ben knows too much about the assassin.

"The Double" is old-fashioned thriller about Russian assassins that are unexpectedly awakened to accomplish an assignment. The idea is not original and the identity of Cassius 7 is known since the beginning. However, the plot keeps the tension until the last plot point. With similar theme, 1962 "The Manchurian Candidate" and "No Way Wout" are better and better. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Codinome Cassius 7" ("Codiname Cassius 7")
