The Dou­ble

TV Times - - Film Guide -

BBC1 11.50pm - 1.20am ★★

thriller ⊲ Richard Gere’s re­tired CIA agent re­luc­tantly joins an FBI rookie (To­pher Grace) in the hunt for a leg­endary Soviet as­sas­sin known as Cas­sius, who may have resur­faced and killed a US se­na­tor. This lack­lus­tre thriller also stars Martin Sheen as the CIA chief. De­spite its two big sur­prises, this is so poorly writ­ten and di­rected that it’s never tense.

Dir: Michael Brandt 2011, 12, 90min
