SALESK's rating of the film The Devil's Double

Slips into by-the-number biopic territory rather quickly and after a while, the sadistic mania of a spoiled dictator's son becomes rather passe. Cooper is very good, however, and the visual effect of his double performance is flawless 99% of the time (unfortunately, the 1% is a blatantly noticeable). Ends on a note of unbelievability. Could have done with more psychological depth and less action movie cliches.
