The Dictator

Sacha Baron Cohen, more commonly known for his role in Borat, returns in The Dictator.

Admiral General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen), who rules the non-existent Northh African country Wadiya, is a proponent of dictatorship, execution and violence. The problem, however, is that the world is unsurprisingly closed to his ideas and so he journeys on to New York to convince the United Nations. Along the way, he meets with obstacles and hostile characters such as his scheming uncle played by Ben Kingsley as well as his love interest (Anna Faris).

By means of exaggeration, the famed performer often brings out issues as raised by those who dare to voice out their opinions – such as feminists or celebrities – but from an interestingly new perspective though less so in The Dictator. Nonetheless, the movie proceeds on with crude jokes, pokes and, sometimes mean, comments that has its regular audience well entertained.
