Just finished episode 2 ... Brilliant!
7 August 2008 | by james-948See all my reviews

This is brilliant, absolutely fantastic.

Since the war (2003) I've been fascinated with history of Iraq and the story of Saddam and this is a truly great dramatisation from what i've researched.

It's everything I expected and more. Great cast, gripping story and fantastic score!

My only criticism is some of the smaller roles / characters acting is a little cheap, and the last scene from eps. 2 was a little cheesy "this is my county!", was good up until then.

I hate to say it, as it clearly isn't the case, but the acting is good, gives a human edge to the story, almost empathetic, but then you soon remember how brutal he was - a true madman.

Nothing like Uday Hussein, words cant explain his evilness.

On a separate note, any ideas who composed the score?
