review by
Mike Haberfelner

All Jimmy (Matthew Lawrence) wanted was to travel across the country to scatter his brother's ashes into the Pacific - but at a random gas station in the middle of nowhere, he witnesses a hold-up - but not just a regular hold-up as the assailants are heavily armed and yet the cashier Natasha (Danielle C. Ryan) has no problems taking them out, then though makes a hasty escape carrying a pre-packed bag. Shocked as he is, Jimmy tries to get away from the gas station as quickly as he can - only to notice Natasha has found refuge in his car, and they're followed by more gunmen - whom Natasha kills mercilessly. Eventually, Natasha fills Jimmy in on the background story, she's been working for the mob but has been skimming money for years, and obviously she's been found out only now - so she'll do whatever it takes to save her own life ... and if Jimmy wants to live as well, he better do her bidding. Now the good thing is, Natasha is more than capable to take care of her own, she's a total badass and then some - but she also has a split personality, there's the ruthless fighter and killer, but then there's also the caring side. And the latter side Jimmy slowly warms up to. Thing is, mob boss Lombardo (Mo Gallini) has not just sent some random goons after her to take her out, but also the dangerous combination of his top hitwoman Ask (Dawn Olivieri) and his own son Ellis (Kevin Joy), who's incidently Natasha's ex - and he's not yet sure if he wants to kill her, or everyone around her to have her all for himself, starting of course with Jimmy ...

 

Double Threat is, quite simply put, one heck of a fun action flick. And that said, sure, the film's depiction of a split personality would probably not stand purely scientific probing, plus sometimes the movie gives into genre tropes a bit too easily - but really that hardly matters, as the whole thing's deliciously fast-paced without ever just overtaxing the viewer, it's dialogue's almost invariably on-point and witty, and the action scenes are just incredibly well-executed, not just from a technical point of view, but also when it comes to build-up and excitement. And add to that a very able cast, and you've got yourself a pretty cool piece of genre cinema for sure.
