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

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 recreates on screen the world of Uganda under the mad dictatorship of Idi Amin

“I was thoroughly entertained by this film from start to finish that does a decent job highlighting Idi Amin's brutal rise to power with incredible storytelling style and phenomenal acting, but it does lack vital context that could've made it a more life-changing cinematic experience that exposes the origins of this event. Not as powerful as Kevin Macdonald's greatest film, 'The Mauritanian.'” read more

"First viewing - May 22nd I've got to say I was not prepared for there to be as much humor in this film as there is. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a drama, but the interactions between McAvoy and Whitaker's characters are mostly fun and had me laughing consistently. Both actors give outstanding performances, and the rest of the cast does a very good job too. The story is compelling, and if it has a fault it's that we know this is the doctor's story and it could not be told had he not survi"

"28.2 Eipä tämä erotu historiallisten draamojen ja elämäkertaelokuvien joukosta juuri millään tavalla. Melko tyypillinen yhden vahvan roolisuorituksen ympärillä pyörivä teos, josta myös tusina muita Oscar baitteja on valettu. Toisaalta Forest Whitaker osaa eläytyä pelottavan hyvin Ugandan hirmuhallitsija Idi Aminiksi, jonka persoonallisuus vaihtelee vähän väliä karismaattisen johtajan ja murhanhimoisen tyrannin välillä. Mutta toisaalta myös melko kornia nähdä miten Whitake"
