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

"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"

"Feb 18th I think the story is too concerned with the white lead character's sexual vices then a story about Uganda and Idi Amin. Overall I judged it as another white centered movie about Africa. I found Whittaker's performance forced and flat. He seemed to play stereotypes of what was expected of a Idi Amin character than delving in the character. The movie is not the worst thing but it's not the best either. It disappoints by not delving into more serious story. It gives you a fictional sur"
