The Republic of Wadiya makes its mark not by terrorism but the wacky and super crazy movie The Dictator starring Sacha Baron Cohen. Though he might be known with his very controversial film Borat. The Dictator tells the story of General-Admiral Aladeen who leads the nation of Wadiya which is rich in oil however lives under the Tyranny of the "Supreme One" who also is spoiled with almost everything he wants. However he still feels a sense of loneliness.

The Dictator is actually based from a novel of the fallen leader Saddam Hussein entitled, "Zabibah and the King". They made a modern twist to this story plus the fact that Cohen is a genius in making insanely controversial comedy that requires an open mind and sense of humor to greatly enjoy the film.

There would be a lot of stereotypes, racial slurs written in a comedic way that in the end you would laugh and forget the insulting script. Though I can say pertains to politics, the society wherein it serves as an eye opener to the issues of the world which also shows the irony that many have failed to portray. The long wait was indeed worth it!

The Dictator may be compared with the other movie of Sacha Baron Cohen, but I would say that it has a more refined yet still crazy (really crazy). I however recommend that you must take off your prejudices, sensitivity, and sexual insecurities behind and just enjoy some (not so clean) fun with the leader of the Republic of Wadiya!

The Dictator is distributed by United International Pictures and Solar Entertainment Corporation. Now  showing in Theaters July 25.

Deliberation time kids!
