You can tell this movie is a flop only 5 minutes in. I watched 30 minutes, and it did not get any better. Val Kilmer's character delivers a baby in the beginning of the movie--proving that he's a doctor, I guess. What does he do? Sit at the edge of the bed and say "Okay, now breathe" with zero emotion--might as well be a table read. Unbelievable! His other acting skills are smiling inappropriately and inexplicably, nodding his head, and running slowly and awkwardly. **Sigh** Very disappointing. I'm a fan of Val's performances early in his career (Top Secret, Top Gun, Willow, The Saint, The Doors, etc.) but he seems to be "phoning it in" in his later stuff.

"Think of this movie as 90 minutes of your life you'll never get back again. The whole movie is spun around a tale of mistaken identity. Val's character miraculously and seamlessly goes from being a family physician to a secret agent he has been mistaken for. Instantly Val knows how to disarm somebody with his bare hands, shoot a gun with perfect accuracy, and talk himself out of any situation.
In a nutshell: the script is dreadful, the plot is absurd, the budget is a shoestring, and the acting flounders. You'd be better off with a 007 movie."
Boring Mistaken Identity Film

"Double Identity, also known as Fake Identity, is yet another dull addition to a string of straight to video movies by Val Kilmer. The film takes elements from North By Northwest, a mistaken identity film by Alfred Hitchcock. It's equal parts smooth British spies, expressionless Eastern Europeans, and cutthroat diamond merchants.
Val Kilmer is uninspiring as a hapless American doctor in Bulgaria that ultimately travels to Prague to evade his assailants. The movie's cover is misleading, as it portrays Kilmer as something of a spy or action hero. Helping him along the way is the lovely secret agent played by Polish actress Izabella Miko (Athena in Clash of the Titans).
The direction and cinematography are both decent, but the acting and writing both are sub-par. The film lacks an original story, and just isn't suspenseful. I wouldn't suggest even renting this movie, as it will only remind you of how hard Kilmer has fallen off since the 80's and 90's."

"I've always liked Val Kilmer's work and thought "any movie he's in must be good." Well, good grief, this flick sucked big time. It was impossible to recognized a plot line and even fizzled at the end. Unfortunately, I bought this movie and now wish I had only wasted my money renting it. Sorry, Val! Is you're career really in the tank? I sure hope not!"
