3.0 out of 5 stars OK, could have been better, December 4, 2011

This review is from: The Devil's Double [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I rarely post reviews of movies but I though somebody should present an objective view of Devil's Double. Honestly, while it was a fairly entertaining film and Dominic Cooper's performance was noteworthy, the movie as a whole lacked substance and tried to overcompensate in gratuitous violence. While I'm not doubting the regime of Uday and his family was evil and forced virtually everybody to either placate to their desires or suffer the consequences, this was something we all knew before we watched the movie, and the film doesn't really do anything to dig into the dynamics of the family or the Iraqi dictatorship. It was also extremely predictable and the script left a great bit to be desired. As my rating indicates, I'm not saying this was a bad movie. However, for all the potential it could have and should have been better. Would I recommend watching it one time? Certainly. It is worth spending money on to own? Probably not for most people. See it once, there is little reward in a second viewing unless your looking for a lot of violence and cocaine and you don't own Scarface.
