Cooper is great, in a great part. But for an actor, not for his audience.

The Devil's Double is a fantastic film that features a central performance so compelling, you'd be foolish to look away even for a second.

November 23, 2011
...a sporadically intriguing yet disastrously undercooked thriller.

Despite numerous pluses - Lee Tamahori's vigorous direction, handsome cinematography, outstanding production design, an impressive dual performance by Dominic Cooper as Uday and Latif - the film is more wearying than entertaining.

Some of the cruelty in the film is hard to stomach, but frighteningly believable.

I'm not sure what it all adds up to, but The Devil's Double puts its hooks in you and keeps them there.

September 7, 2011
Probably only a three-and-a-half star movie, but it's pushed into four-star territory thanks to the performances of Dominic Cooper.

September 1, 2011
Equally as offensive as the movie's smorgasbord of smut and violence is the lingering whiff of colonial-era orientalism, a Western predilection for regarding Eastern cultures as innately idle, lascivious, irrational, and thus ripe for intervention.
August 25, 2011
"The film is lurid and exploitative (and how!), which enthralls for a while while Cooper's dual performance as the crazed Uday and smoldering Latif is certainly laudable."
August 18, 2011
Cooper's dual performance is near-brilliant.

If you've been waiting to see the excesses and bone-deep corruption of Baghdad under Saddam Hussein done up gold-plated, Jersey Shore-tacky style, wait no more.
August 17, 2011
It is a ghastly, riveting, dazzling piece of work.

August 17, 2011
at times Tamahori's visuals feel a bit too polished and refined, which gives the film a glossy veneer that is at odds with the atrocities on-screen
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 15, 2011
While the film is fairly entertaining, it has nothing new to say about Iraq and little that is original about doppelgangers.
August 12, 2011
The Devil's Double simply offers a trip through hell on a one-way track, like a spook-house ride at the amusement park meant to titillate and excite the senses and then deposit the rider/viewer safely on the other side in the full light of day.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 12, 2011
A genuine curiosity.
August 12, 2011
Cooper gives a great performance, or rather two great performances, although it's really only Uday's depravity that keeps you glued to the screen.

A better film would undoubtedly have been a quieter, more reflective one, less tempted by Grand Guignol. But it is very watchable...
