The movie starts out with the FBI spying on and tailing a suspect who is suddenly murdered by a mystery assassin. He has a calling card of slitting his victim's throats and I think he is a Russian spy. Anyway the government tries to enlist Richard Gere to come help them with the case since he is a spy with a lot of experience. They want him to work with a new agent played by Topher Grace. Every time I saw him, I could only think of Venom from Spiderman 3.
I woke up again to more gunfire and saw Somersby get shot and hunch over and die. Then there was a crane shot panning out at the end.
I forgot to mention that Martin Sheen is in this movie too. He and Richard Gere are both getting older and now have silver hair. Some day I will have silver hair too like them. That is the main thing I learned from this movie. Life is short, remember to live each day to the fullest. I'm not sure if that is the tagline to this movie, but it should be. I give The Double 6.2 stars. I'm sorry I slept through most of it.
