  • This is a straight-up gangsta film, yo. Spare us the phony redemption. show more

  • The movie isn't deep, or particularly intricate; it doesn't play all that much with the potential for mistaken identities, and the cruelty it depicts becomes repetitive or, worse still, desensitizing. But The Devil's Double does give us indelible images of Uday's decadence - the filmmakers say they're understated - and a double dip of dazzling acting. show more

  • This is a breakthrough star performance from a terrific actor getting a chance to let it rip. show more
