    The Double does contain some delightfully over-the-top twists that make no sense but are great fun to consider. show more

    The movie was directed by Michael Brandt, who co-wrote the script with Derek Haas. Together they wrote a much better movie, "3:10 to Yuma." The Double doesn't approach it in terms of quality. None of it is particularly compelling. show more
