Us Rating: ****

Dominic Cooper amazes in a dual role in this Scarface-style true story. He plays Saddam Hussein's psychotic son Uday and also the ethical soldier forced to be Uday's public stand-in in 1987. The adrenaline-filled drama moves fast, though scenes of torture will turn stomachs. It is disturbing yet fascinating to watch a man so flamboyantly evil, he slays his father's best friend at a party in front of a roomful of guests. Devilishly dark!
