The 80's were brilliant, if you were in charge.
A chilling vision of the House of Saddam Hussein comes to life through the eyes of the man who was forced to become the double of Hussein's sadistic son.

While you won't find barrels of sub-text with The Devil's Double, you will be excellently surprised with the split-performance by Dominic Cooper.

Give yourself 15 minutes and you'll soon forget you're watching the same man perform both leading roles. I'm certain you'll ask yourself how come we haven't seen more of this man; hopefully bigger roles will swing his way soon as he proves he can carry a story from start to finish all on his own.

Visually the cinematography is stimulating to say the least. Strong color palettes bring to life the interior and exteriors of the city of Baghdad with rich, warm yellow's during the day and cool blues for evening life.

Solid writing held together with even stronger characters being performed by strong actors, all neatly tied together with a dynamic display of pyrotechnics, this is certainly not a film to be missed.
