    Very underrated movie but it's very exaggerated, Latif Yaha made it sound like he's was damn superhero. 7 years 11 months ago

    The Devil's Double is a biopic about the body double of Saddam Hussein's psychotic son, Uday. Playing out against the events of the 80s and early 90s, it really does treat Iraq's first family as gangsters, and Uday is their depraved and very violent loose canon. Uday's atrocities are rather brutal and shocking, even in bad taste, but they are a matter of public record (not that the film doesn't take a lot of creative license with the material). Dominic Cooper plays the dual role, about as far as he can get from his recent turn as Howard Stark in Captain America, and knocks it out of the park. Cinema has become so good at "doubles" that you can easily forget it's the same actor and not, say, Dominic's twin. Iraq is played by Jordan and Malta, which is probably less convincing to those who know, but the conceit is understandable. It's an intriguing story, well played in an exotic locale. 6 years 1 month ago
