Audience Reviews for Rise and Fall of Idi Amin
Stunningly violent and brutal film that comes off as a gory action film instead of a full documentary. I might consider it to be Men Behind the Sun Lite
Graphic and in your face. You can see that the dictator Idi Amin was no joke. This movie was better than the Last King of Scotland to me. The actors are mostly unknowns and that always seems to make the movie better.
The dialogue was, at times, simply hilarious. Amin is depicted as a childish psychopath who, among other things, practices cannibalism and takes part in motor rallies. In other words, this movie is pure exploitation, and it certainly gets some extra shock value when you concider that it came out only two years after Amin was overthrown. Could have been slightly shorter, though.
