The Dictator

Year : 2012 Director : Larry Charles Running Time : 83 Genre :
Movie review score
2/5

What’s it about?
The heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. Or the story of a dictator who is stranded in the America – the country he hates – without his identity but all of his attitude.

What did we think?
Intermittent laugh-out-loud moments don’t disguise the fact that this is a hit-and-miss affair. Imagine Coming To America with outright vulgarity: it’s sort of funny but not always in a good way.

It’s essentially re-heated Sacha Baron Cohen so his fans will lap it up while the rest of us will be hoping for an actor re-boot for his next project.
