Despite a great performance by Ronald Colman, "A Double Life" is a boring movie. The film has been given a lot of good reviews, but the script is dull, melodramatic, and contrived. Good cinematography, music score and a great cast, but I found it too slow and unappealing right from the start. "A Double Life" is vastly overrated. If you're a die hard Ronald Colman fan or love Shakespeare you may get into it. ★★
