The Last King of Scotland Reviews
May 12, 2020
An electric chemistry between McAvoy and Whitaker allows us to suspend our disbelief at the doctor's feckless gullibility...
November 3, 2018
A commendable action film rather than astute political portrait.
February 27, 2018
In Idi Amin, Whitaker reaches his artistic zenith.
November 7, 2012
Captivating hyper-realism, a taut political thriller, and the performance of the year.

The Last King Of Scotland will no doubt be picking up an armful of gongs come award season, and rightly so; it's not only lovingly shot and acted, but it evolves into one of the best thrillers of recent memory too.

Pit stop for white liberal guilt and neocolonial pillaging
June 25, 2008
Whitaker pulls off a spectacular thespian coup that has Oscar-winner stamped all over it.

Its ultimate effect is that of shallow self-congratulation.

Whitaker portrays Amin as funny, vulnerable, tender and enigmatic -- all without ever letting us forget he was a maniacal monster.

...Whitaker's superb work remains the highlight of an otherwise routine effort.

It's a deconstruction of Idi Amin's persona, played with such dedication by Whitaker the surrounding narrative feels without purpose.
March 5, 2007
There is surprise in Whitaker's step, with a curtain of menace running beneath it. His is one of the fiercest, least predictable performances of 2006, so fully on edge that he becomes the movie's edge.
