Los Angeles Times
Captures the energy and exuberance of a young nation in the throes of optimism and works it into a foreboding frenzy. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Forest Whitaker is astoundingly multifaceted and convincing as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. In the performance of his career, he fully inhabits the part of the barbaric and charismatic ruler. Full Review

The Last King of Scotland never rises to the standard set by Forest Whitaker's fearless (and fearsome) performance as Idi Amin. Full Review
