A master assassin who specializes in shooting his victims twice in the head, a "double tap", may not be everything he initially seems to be. An undercover officer ends up teaming up with him after she is not killed in one of his hits on a drug lord and after she determines he is an ex-officer out to kill only those who stand outside the law and are deserving of being murdered. Her investigations lead to dirty officers and uncertainty about whom she can trust.Written by

Good idea with unrealized potential
"Double Tap" asks the question: Can a beautiful deep cover FBI agent (Locklear) fall for a shadowy hitman (Rea) with scruples? This, the film's premise, has potential which is mostly lost in a morass of Hollyweird window dressing including jerky jump cuts, unnecessary blends, strange music, over acting, cheap atmospherics, etc. with little attention paid to story coherence and character development. Bottom line: "Double Tap" is little more than an fodder for those in the mood for some noirish crime drama on late night TV.
