Review: The Last King of Scotland


I kept lots praises for this movie, and so I decided to watch this movie about Idi Ameen the “President” of Uganda. I didn’t know what exactly to expect but it starts off with Dr. Garrigan leaving Scotland to do humanitarian work in Uganda, going to a mission to help out as the second doctor. As things play out he meets President Idi Ameen, and things get interesting from there. This man is a Scottish Doctor and he likes things given to him straight and giving it straight, he hasn’t been used to the poiltical scene before. It gets really intense as the movie goes forward you get to see the real side of Idi Ameen, and all the twists and plots in this movie. I have to say that there were times where I was completely in shock of how unstable this man is, and what the dear Doctor got himself into. I don’t want to ruin this movie for anyone but it does have its slightly gory moments, and its extremely worth seeing. For a movie being this good, its shocking that this is a true story.
