Dr Gerald Bull was a genius at designing and building superguns. (Very large long range guns capable of shooting more than 100 Miles.) When a plan by the CIA to export restricted material using him was exposed, the CIA denied all knowledge and he went to jail. He was later released to help Saddam Hussein build a new supergun capable of firing over 500 miles. Israel, upon learning of the supergun, fears it would be used against themselves. Written by

I've read a book about the super gun ,and the man behind it.(Can't remember if it was fiction or biography)But I find they portray of him in this film,extremely naive. They go to great lengths to portray him as a big child,who just wanna realize his dream, of building the biggest gun ever.
If it was meant as a kid movie that might have worked out well. But since this a movie for adult about real events(though I'm sure they've taken huge liberties with the truth)And he has worked with agency's all over the world,he seem quite willfully ignorant of the threat they are to him. He just goes on and on, about how wonderfully it will be that his invention works.
He seem to have no conception of how dangerous it will be, that Saddam wanna brag and show off a model of this doomsday cannon, on a international public arms convention. Even though he knows the people after him are quite serious about stopping him. The fact that America in the movie, think they can decate Israel is kind of amusing. Everyone with half a brain,knows it's the otherway around
