Sacha baron Cohen did Boat and he did Bruno and now he is the Dictator. There is one man standing between Democracy and his country: the great dictator who rules said country, lovingly, with an iron fist, and he will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way. Okay there are some funny joke at part's and that's it.

Did I like it? Yes. Is it a great film? Hell no. It has some humorous moments, but overall the film isn't that funny. The best jokes are all in the trailer. Very short. Incredibly inconsistent.

A movie whose funniest parts can be watched on the trailer. It wasn't bad, I just wouldn't run out to ever see it again.

This one says it all. The final speach is really brilliant and a real eye-opener if they werent open yet. This should be a movie that all presidents, ministets ect. should see. Without any exception. This movie is a real 'must see' and even a 'I want to see this one once more movie'. ...

A far cry from Borat!!!

Being a huge fan of Sacha's, i was jumping for joy when i heard he was making another of his comedies for the big screen. I loved 'Borat' to pieces and no matter how many times i watch it i always produce that belly laugh that i so long for in watching comedies. Then along came Bruno, not so bad but still relatively funny. Well after finishing 'The Dictator' I think i laughed twice at the whole thing and with Sacha's movies that my freind is rare!! The storyline was alright but i'm asking myself if Sacha's ways of pushing the envelope so to speak has either gotten soft or timid? Missing in this film were any real 'OMG' moments the moments that made me fall in love with his films in the first place.

I'll keep this review short as there is really not much more to say. I will end this...
