      Forrest Whitaker is a genius in this movie. I knew just from seeing the trailer that this film was going to be terrific. The previews didn’t lie.

      In fact, the film was better than I expected. The story of Idi Amin is interesting, brutal, touching in some spots—but


      totally engrossing.

      Whitaker hones in on Amin’s nuances and personality quirks like an expert. I have heard that he even called home and spoke to his children while he was still in character.

      (How’s that for dedication and role submersion?) Amin’s rule was brutal. And none of the gore ...


      • or shock has been spared with regard to how insanely paranoid he was.

        The addition of Nicholas to the story was a nice twist. And seeing Kerry Washington playing a role such as this was also extremely touching.

        There are quite a few intensely violent scenes in this movie. So

        if you have a weak stomach, I suggest you find another film.

        But if you’re able to see brutality which is necessary to the plot of the film, then watch away. Overall, this is a brilliant piece of work.

        It certainly deserves all the awards and accolades that it has received.
