Dominic Cooper does one of his best performances in the new film by Lee Tamahori (known for titles such as "Next" or "Die Another Day"). However, the film deflates territories in indecision. Being able to be an action film, it is not; may reflect a historical reality, leans a superficial view, having a product before a huge psychological burden, barely delves into the monster or victim.

Ever since I saw 'Once Were Warriors' in the mid-90's, I had the greatest expectations for Lee Tamahori and I thought he would become a really great director. Unfortunately, even though this impressive debut managed for him to open the doors of Hollywood, his career has been rather disappointing ever since. Anyway, after almost 20 years, he was finally coming up with a very interesting project... read more

A good movie

“Ever since I saw 'Once Were Warriors' in the mid-90's, I had the greatest expectations for Lee Tamahori and I thought he would become a really great director. Unfortunately, even though this impressive debut managed for him to open the doors of Hollywood, his career has been rather disappointing ever since. Anyway, after almost 20 years, he was finally coming up with a very interesting project so I was really eager to check it out, even if it didn’t make many waves when it was released. Eventually, it was indeed a great story but, unfortunately, the movie was at best decent but nothing really great, I'm afraid. I mean, we shouldn't blame Dominic Cooper as the guy gave a really impressive double performance, managing to create two separate human beings. At the end of the day, the” read more

"The Devil's Double" part of a real context. After the war between Iran and Iraq, Uday Hussein, one of Saddam's sons, decided to secure the services of a double, an ex-soldier named Laatif. Since then, Laatif is forced to follow the footsteps of a being unbalanced, sadistic, drug addict and manic.

The starting point was so promising. And in that line one is ready to receive the early sta” read more

"I have been anticipating this film for quite sometime. Was it worth the wait? Yeah. That is just a "Yeah." though. Not am overly joyous "Yeah!" I like it. Dominic Cooper does a fantastic job without him playing both main roles and having the film becoming a goddammed joke. "

"Brilliantly pulling off the dual role of good and evil, Dominic Cooper's portrayal of Uday Hussein is incredible. Just watch the party at his house scene and how he treats a family friend. The picture would be too gross to show but he's nuts to put it gently. "

" Still, not quite sure what to think of this film. While I think that enough time has passed where the film didn't feel quite like a Pro-American War film. There were aspects of the story that felt a little polished. In other words I think the 'good guy' was a little too good."

IMP 2011 vol.1: Posters Awards (45 movies items)

""The characters in this movie are all about excess. And this poster reeks of it. The guns, the clothes, the regal chair, even the rather obvious bulge in the man's pants. Oh, and if that's not enough, EVERYTHING is coated in gold. A very eye-catching design that drives home the concept of the film." "
