All though a very well researched and executed programme, my beef with this documentary is that the main actor who played the character of Saddam Hussein, just does not look or feel like Saddam Hussein.
Saddam Hussien was a modern day baddie but he was a legend and he deserved to be portrayed properly. I feel he wasn't! But otherwise it is a good film!
If they had used another actor who looked a bit more like the Saddam Hussein we knew then i feel this film could have been much better.
When the main character was so famously known by millions, the actor who played him had to look and feel like him. Like Sir Ben Kingsley did for Gandhi!
