Charming. Magnetic. Murderous. This is Amin's incredible story as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy), a young Scotsman who becomes the volatile leader's personal physician, due in part to Amin's unexpected passion for Scottish culture - Amin even proclaims himself "The Last King of Scotland". Seduced by Amin's charisma and blinded by decadence, Garrigan's dream life becomes a waking nightmare of betrayal and madness from which there is no escape. Inspired by real people and events, this gripping, suspense-laden drama features a sensational Oscar-winning turn from Forest Whitaker as the tyrant dictator, Idi Amin.

Not What I Expected
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 25/03/2011 15:57:25
Very gruesome in parts, good story, but told in Broad Sweeps as a lot of details are left out. And the True Story tag is right and wrong. Because James Macavoy's charcter is not real, although some of the events he is present at in the movie are real. Performance wise Forrest Whittaker did deserve his Oscar (just about) in a year that didn't have many brilliant performances. Thought James Mc-Avoy shud have got a Supporting Actor Nod. Overall a good movie, but a touch gruesome. Note: This Review was made by Play.com customer: Rambo456 on Rakuten’s Play.com on the date shown.
Forest Whittaker's Performance Papers Over The Cracks
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 30/04/2007 14:07:59
There is no doubt that Forrest Whittaker's performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin is a fine one and worthy of a great deal of admiration and respect. whether it was worthy of a Best Actor Oscar or BAFTA is a much more subjective matter. To my mind, perhaps the greatest compliment to an actor's performance one can offer is to suggest that their performance is of such quality that it makes up for a film's other deficiencies. The Last King of Scotland is a compelling story and Forest Whittaker steals the show in whichever scene he is in; Having a great actor playing an interesting character has certainly helped win this movie a great deal of critical acclaim and success but, as I have alluded to, I believe Whittaker's turn as Idi Amin papers over the cracks in this film. The main character, Dr. Nicholas Garrigan, played by James McAvoy, is essentially a self-serving egotistical fool which, if the character had any redeeming features, wouldn't necessarily have been a problem. As it stands though, the Garrigan character is completely unsympathetic from the beginning to end and, as a result, he is rendered one-dimensional and uninteresting as a protagonist - his only real dramatic function within the plot being to stand in contrast to Whittaker's Amin. Any of the characters who demonstrate any level of integrity or genuine personal investment in the Ugandan situation such as those played by Gillian Anderson and the excellent David Oyelowo are either damaged, ruined, or killed as a result of their interaction with the contemptable and disdainful Dr. Garrigan. One might conclude that this is a deliberate comment on the frustration and futility that characterised the Amin regime in Uganda. Regardless, I can't help but feel that a more sympathetic protagonist would have actually made the Amin character even more frightening and maniacal by contrast. At the same time, it would actually give an audience some reason to feel invested in the success or fate of Garrigan himself (as a character worthy of our empathy) and not simply as a potential reflex to or symbol of Amin's potential failure. This is a film that I had really looked forward to seeing but, having done so, I couldn't shake the feeling of disappointment after a film which on the surface promises so much, delivers little other than the fine performance of Forest Whittaker and some admiral performances from actors in the supporting roles.
