Movie trailer


I even love the trailer. But that is partly because I'm a Depeche Mode fan, ♫ personal...♫ Jesus...♫ YEAH!
The last thing I heard about this guy is that they could not confirm this guys story 100% because even though he had times and places of when/where Uday was/was doing, it's not like you can call someone who was there to confirm, "Oh yeah, that's Uday's double, he's the guy at those places instead of Uday." Only Saddam's inner circle would have that info, and they are either, dead, in hiding, or not in hiding but hate and/or fear the US and not willing to talk about the incident. Also, even though almost all 'the double's' info was correct, there were a few details that didn't coincide. I think, I THINK, those were the reasons (I heard) why 'the double's' info could not be validated to be 100%.
Anyway,I frigin loved this movie! Good action, good tension (to me it felt like a guy coming to terms that he was Uday's toy, literally, not even a person), good acting, good filming, NO producers hiring Hollywood actors trying to bring their 'star power', aka Cliff Curtis, aka the actor that plays EVERY Hispanic gang banger or Middle East terrorist! A good telling, and small picture, of Uday's megalomania. Good mix of everything, not to gratuitous of any, some nudity, loved it as a whole, WILL watch it again. Enjoy!
Definitely worth watching. All though it's based on the stories of the man who was the body double of this truly insane son of Saddam, the event's are not told as he has said they happened. It's surely dramatized to captivate the viewer, but even if told in his true words it's enough to garner the attention of any who hear them. If you want to know more from the man himself I suggest watching the episode of "Locked up abroad" featuring him telling it in his own words as they really happened.
Wow that was a good movie! I first saw the story on a television show called Locked Up Abroad a few years ago but I had no idea they made a movie about it. I only found out through another solarian's comments on another show about it. 9/10 for me.
Very good movie !!
10/10 :D Amazing movie
Amazing story, specially knowing that it is mostly from true events and real people,great acting, very powerful stuff, mind boggling evil minded violence from a freak of history, fascinating but disturbing at the same time. The invasion of Irak was put in place for all the wrong reasons and using lies to justify it but it do one very good thing: wiping out this evil tyrannic Sadam Hussein family. a must watch.8/10
based on a true story
good movie, not as shocking as I thought it would be though. Interesting, but tame compared to some of the actual things said about him in real life.
