Dr Garrigan (James McAvoy) expects to find exotism in Uganda. He certainly will find it, especially after meeting the country's President, Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) and becoming his personal physician. A chain of events will change Garrigan's life, forever.

Absolutely wonderful, brilliant cast. I especially approve of Whitaker's "African" accent in English. Excellent portrayal of t... read more

I just recently saw a preview for this movie, and I knew I had to see it. Now that I have, I definitely wasn't disappointed. This was a well-told story that keeps you hooked from start to finish.

I really enjoyed this movie, despite some brutal scenes, which were not overly drawn out. Well written, excellently acted.

Astonishing!

"If you're afraid of dying it shows you have a life worth living."

The Last King of Scotland is an intense, embracing thriller inspired by the true historical events of a horrible dictatorship that grappled Uganda throughout the 1970s. In the contemporary period of filmmaking it's an arduous undertaking to discover a film that truly stands out. With this film director Kevin Macdonal... read more

Description: It was supposed to be a wild adventure in a far off country, but when a naive young doctor arrives in 1970's Uganda - hoping for fun, sun and to lend a helping hand - he finds himself instead on a shocking ride into the darkest realm on earth: the human heart. This is the story of The Last King Of Scotland, a powerful thriller that re ... (more)

"Katsottu: 30.1.2014 nauhalta Nuori skottilääkäri Nicholas Carrigan (James McAvoy) lähtee Ugandaan ja päätyy diktaattori Idi Aminin (Forest Whitaker) henkilääkäriksi. Aluksi Nicholas pitää Aminia hyvänä johtajana sekä ystävänään, mutta ajan mittaa hänen käsityksensä Aminista muuttuu paljon, ja hän joutuu taistelemaan hengestään. Elokuva oli ihan mielenkiintoinen, muttei sitten lopuksi antanut Idi Aminista niin hirveän pahaa kuvaa, vaikka sitän hän oli. Näyttely on ku"

"30.12. (DVD) Onhan tämä aiemminkin nähty, mutta kertaus on opintojen äiti. Kivaa dramatisointia, Aminin näyttelijä luo eläytymisellään uhan tunnetta. Päähenkilö puolestaan saa paljon pesää. Huonona puolena mielipuoli diktaattori ei tässä elokuvassa säilytä irtopäitä jääkaapissa tai piiloudu alusvaatteisillaan komeroon. Mikä Saudi-Arabiaa riivaa, kun antavat muun syntisyytensä lisäksi vieläpä turvapaikan Aminille?"

" Based on the events of the brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin's regime as seen by his personal physician during the 1970s There are a few familiar faces including Forest Whitaker, James McAvoy, Kerry Washington, Gillian Anderson, and David Oyelowo. Kerry Washington pulled off playing Ugandan pretty well. The first half is well acted, but pretty boring to be honest. The last half is where it gets really interesting and intense. Some scenes are pretty shocking and unexpected. It is so depressing h"
