Here is the plot description for “The Devil’s Double”:

Based on a gripping and unbelievable true story of money, power and opulent decadence, Lionsgate’s “The Devil’s Double” takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence known as Baghdad in 1987. Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein’s palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is thrust into the highest echelons of the “royal family” when he’s ordered to become the ‘fiday’ – or body double – to Saddam’s son.

The notorious “Black Prince” Uday Hussein (also Dominic Cooper) is a reckless and sadistic party boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality. With his and his family’s lives at stake, Latif must surrender his former self forever as he learns to walk, talk and act like Uday. But nothing could have prepared him for the horror of the Black Prince’s psychotic, drug-addled life of fast cars, easy women and impulsive violence.

With one wrong move costing him his life, Latif forges an intimate bond with Sarrab (Ludivine Sagnier): Uday’s seductive mistress who’s haunted by her own secrets. But as war looms with Kuwait and Uday’s depraved gangster regime threatens to destroy them all, Latif realizes that escape from the devil’s den comes at the highest possible cost.

Featuring a riveting double performance by Dominic Cooper (“An Education,” “Mamma Mia!”) in the roles of Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein, “The Devil’s Double” is a dynamic and chilling adaptation of Latif Yahia’s autobiographical novel, which charts one man’s defiant struggle to survive a viper’s pit of corruption and brutality. The film is directed by Lee Tamahori (“Die Another Day,” “XXX: State of the Union”) and written by Michael Thomas (“Backbeat,” “Scandal”).

Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.
